Harvest Monday 2.13.12

This week was a crazy week! The weather was insane and the bounty shows for it!

Tatsoi, lettuce of every kind, daikon, turnips, onions, peas, radish, and strawberries in the first batch
Limes, cilantro, parsley, spinach and more peas in the second batch

A nice bowl of broccoli and some carrots rounded it out. The bowl of strawberries didn't make it into pictures. I made beryberry muffins and they didn't make pictures either. I ate six in one sitting. Don't tell anyone. They wouldn't believe you anyway. LOL. 
I'll try to remember to take some pictures of the muffins though. I do love them so. There is certainly more in my future. Of course right now I'll be recovering from a HARD FREEZE instead of a simple frost or two. Grrrr.... SO the berry plants will take a little while to regroup. That doesn't make me happy because they were absolutely LOADED with fruit and flowers - but the warm weather should be here to stay now so it normally takes them about a month to get back to full performance. March is peak berry season for me normally anyway.  I'm looking forward to it like always.

Tally for the week: Lettuce 3lb 2.5oz, Spinach 2lb5oz, Tatsoi 5oz, Carrots 1lb, Cilantro 4.5oz, Turnips 10oz, Peas 8oz, Green Onions 8oz, Broccoli 1lb 1oz, Limes 6oz, Strawberries 8oz

Next Monday isn't looking so promising after such a hard freeze - but I'll see what I can dig up. Maybe some turnips or carrots - at least that is something. My peas may not like it quite this cold!

'Till next time!



  1. You Florida people make everyone more north than you jealous :)

    Strawberries?? In February??!

  2. Yes, I'm jealous too. It will be another 4 months or so before I get a harvest like you have shown today. My Blueberries are just beginning to show signs of life, with buds swelling.

  3. Strawberries in Feb! wow, mine in the greenhouse just now have a few blooms...

  4. Wow! Strawberries in February would be fabulous! You really did have a very bountiful week. I hope the freeze did not do too much damage.

  5. wow! what an amazing bounty! good for you and i hope it works out with the hard freeze. what a weird winter we have all had!

  6. A lovely looking harvest - those strawberries seem really nice and early. Your winter harvests look like mine except I don't get strawberries that early.

  7. Your harvest looks great! Sorry about the freeze. That really stinks.


  8. Barbie should looks great but all I am harvesting it way overdue produce at the supermarket and way too high prices.
