Harvest Monday

This is my first time partaking in Daphne's Harvest Monday this season. It has been a long time coming! I'd say it is a mix of weather and weather related laziness. That said, the weather has actually been really nice the last few weeks. Lots of days above seasonal for once and the veg has been enjoying it. Below are some shots of what I pulled from the patch today:

A big collander of Pac Choi, both red & green. I am going to
plant some more this week because it is all harvested now.

Here are French Breakfast & Easter Egg radishes. They have done
well this season. I also need to seed more of these this week as well.

Lastly, I picked a few Purple Podded peas today. They will end up
in a stir fry very soon. These are the only peas that have produced
so far. Snap & Salmon Flowered peas are just setting now.

I'll warp things up with Charlie in a chinese take out bag....

Look for another garden update by the weekend.

  2. Charlie is so cute! Love the photo. Those purple peas are gorgeous. Are they shell peas or snap peas? Glad you are getting some veggies these days.

  3. EG - they are a nice pea, easy to find on the vines too!

    henbogle - She really has a thing for paper bags! The purple peas are a shelling pea. I have not tried them yet but I hear they are not very sweet.

  4. Those purple podded peas are just beautiful. The radishes are pretty fine looking too. Pac Choi is a memory now for us (at last until this coming fall). Your garden started to really produce now that the weather has moderated for you.

  5. kitsapFG - I am probably pushing it planting more pac choi this late. I am growing a bolt resistant variety this year so hopefully it makes it.

  6. That's a great cat picture. Lovely eyes. Pretty peas and Pak Choi.

    I keep telling myself that there are always future garden seasons to get right.

  11. Charlie looks like a happy kitty. She sure is lucky to have found you.

    The purple podded peas look interesting.

  12. Like the idea of purple peas in order to find them. It is my biggest complaint about cucumbers, beans and peas. They should all come in bright contrasting colors. With those pickins, are you delivering Chinese takeout?

  13. Great garden harvest! At first when I saw the photo of the purple peas I thought they were mini eggplants! They sure are beautiful.

  17. Nice harvests. And what a cute kitty. We occasionally have the townhouse mates cat over. But we have a gate to keep her from going upstairs to the bedroom as my husband is allergic. Yesterday I had them over for lunch and I forgot. Whoops.

  19. Have to agree, the purple podded peas look great! My sugar snap peas have snapped after a downpour of rain - I should've staked them up better. We live and learn!

  20. Hi, I just came across your blog!
    I love the photos of your garden - they are beautiful. I started growing my own little vegetable garden this spring, and am thoroughly enjoying it. I adore being able to harvest my own chard for lunch and in general helping the environment, even just a little bit.

    If you can, I would love for you to come check out my blog! I just wrote a post about my garden.

  22. This is very helpful. We have dandelions every year here! I am going to grow some herbs, mint, lemon balm for the bugs, and I am going to try catnip.
