First I harvested 3 heads of butter crunch lettuce that seemed to be ready.
A handful of my pole beans..yes..even though the plants don't look like much they are still producing a little anyway. I'll take what I can get. I will save handfuls at a time and by the end of the week i will put them in stir fry, or sauteed in with carrots and other veggies.
Here I grabbed some more small carrots to put in my homemade chicken pot pie. The green onions I cleaned up and sent them to my neighbor. I rarely use them and I didn't want them to go to waste.
I gave my other flat leaf parsley plant a cutting. I will dry it out and add to my kitchen herbs.
Next I clipped the curled parsley for the same as the flat variety. I love using my own herbs that I've grown and dried myself. Ooops...There is my toes..peek a boo..
Next I clipped some leaves off of my brussel sprout plant. I initially was going to use them as I do cabbage when i make stuffed cabbage. But I learned my neighbor had family coming into town so I gave the pickings to her. I can always go out there and get more when I'm ready to use them. :-)
Well thats it for this week. I will be doing A LOT of work in the garden this week. My last post was a tour of the garden and what I plan on doing this week. I'm so excited about my newest bed!!
