Harvest, Week of August 3

Green, yellow and purple beans

Pea pods

Last of the lettuce

Wild arugula

A little Tuscan kale

Red and golden onions

Purple scallions

2 Cherry tomatoes ‘Vilma’ – this is a surprise as this variety said ’95 days to harvest’ on the seed packet. It is the first to ripen. The dwarf plants are adorable and robust.

Herbs: oregano, thyme, basil, chives, parsley

Shiso (Perilla, Japanese Basil)

Unusual greens: Amaranth leaves, Orach leaves


Alpine Strawberries

Last of the red raspberries



Loads of cut flowers: sweet peas, tickseed, angle’s fishing rod, lilies and bells of ireland.

Next week there will be beets, summer squash, cucumbers (yay!) and mouse melons. And maybe a few more little tomatoes from the greenhouse. Bring the Veganaise, it’s sandwich time!
