Harvest Monday is hosted by Daphne's Dandelions. Stop by and show off your harvest.
The first of the beets were ready this week. The white beets were started under lights and transplanted into the garden. The red were pre-sprouted and direct sown.
I roasted the beets and was amazed at how sweet the white are! I'll be planting more white beets this fall. The white ones do oxidize after being cut and the cut surface does turn a bit gray.
The rest of the harvest was lettuce. The heat wave caused the bulk of the spring lettuce to bolt. The exception is 'Gentilina'. The loose heads just get bulkier and the texture is still incredibly crisp.
|My two favorite varieties this year. 'Gentilina' backed by 'Ruby'.|
|This was the first year I've grown a butter head well!|
