Harvest Monday June 3, 2013

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.

  2. At least you got peas, mine are completely decimated by either a rabbit or a groundhog. :-(

    1. Yes, I enjoyed the peas very much. There are a lot of birds around, but they seem to leave them alon!

  3. Those peas look delicious, it's amazing how much and varied harvest you can get from container garden.
