Beautiful harvest! That cabbage and greens look wonderful! My purple basil did not survive but plenty of regular to go around. Nice shallots and tomatoes too!ReplyDelete
Thanks Jenny. My purple basil is doing great this year. I have more in front along the driveway. These plants huge.Delete
Very nice Ed. I can't believe you are still harvesting lettuce. Lucky you to have lettuce and tomatoes!ReplyDelete
This is the first year that I've gotten tomatoes and lettuce harvested at the same time.Delete
LOL, I think you and I are the only ones still harvesting lettuce! I have the summer mix growing in containers right now, and should be harvesting leaves when the last of the spring lettuce is eaten.ReplyDelete
My summer mix lettuce is growing in pots too. So far none of the remaining spring lettuce has turned bitter. I'll be harvesting the last of it this week.Delete
I couldn't imagine lettuce growing outside right now. It is so hot and sunny. I've never seen a summer so hot before.ReplyDelete
Daphne, I'm surprised that the lettuce has not turned bitter. This is the hottest summer that I can remember since moving here.Delete
Lovely harvest and I need to try purple basil.ReplyDelete
The purple basil tastes just like the green and is very attractive. It is a much slower grower in the seedling stage.Delete
That cabbage is amazing! Great harvest.ReplyDelete
Thanks! The cabbage is great, but I'd like to find an earlier compact red variety.Delete
shallots from seed? mmmm I don't remember seeing that before. Very nice looking harvests, that purple basil looks like a winner!ReplyDelete
Great harvest. I wish I had some of your salad greens so I could make a salad with the tomatoes we are starting to harvest.ReplyDelete
