I can't believe that it is already mid-June! How time flies. Everything has been growing super fast both on the balcony and in the community garden. I've been harvesting mostly greens - kale, mizuna, and broccoli leaf. I'm trying to find different ways to eat the greens and been having fun playing around with recipes. Here are some snapshots of my harvest:
The snow peas are on its last leg but I am still harvesting handful of peas every other day. These peas are just absolutely delicious, especially when cooked lightly - it brings out the sweetness. I know I am a little ahead of myself but I am cruising the Baker Creek seeds catalog and eying the purple snow pea seeds.
The bok choy is starting to flower (I have three plants). I harvested 2 out of the three and plan to eat the last one sometime this week. I probably should have harvested it a little bit earlier - it was a little bit fibrous, but we enjoyed them anyway.
The endive is really going strong...they are really bitter but provide a nice little kick to a salad. I think I prefer the arugula over the endive. I also have a couple of spinach plants but I don't think it likes the increasingly hot weather. Since I only have a few plants, I've been harvesting a leaf here and there. I will have to plant more this fall maybe.
