Harvest Monday – July 28, 2014
I can’t actally remember harvesting this zucchini, and still less how I ate it. Weird. The only thing I really remember about it is weighing it, because my cheap kitchen scales only go up to 0.5 kg, and this weighed 0.8 kg, so I had to cut it in half to weigh it.
Ah yes, but I remember this. Tiny balcony carrots, a little beet (they needed to be thinned), a rather big kohlrabi from the community garden and the very last peas. They (well, only part of the kohlrabi) and some of the zucchini went into a quick vegetable stir-fry.
I usually eat the bell peppers with my lunch sandwiches. Although I can’t quite eat them as quickly as they grown, so I’ll have to use them to cook something soon. Maybe I’ll have stuffed peppers some time this week.
First eggplant of the year. It, and the rest of the zucchini, went into a vaguely moussaka-like something of the “let’s just throw together everything that needs to be eaten” variety. It turned out surprisingly good. I just hope I’ll be able to recreate it when I feel like it again.
A couple of strawberries for Sunday breakfast.
Some of the self-sowed lettuce that has been popping up all over my community garden plot (yay for not weeding all that often) and yet another zucchini. A part of it went into the lasanga I made on Sunday – a dish that usually means two days of leftovers, but since I had my mother, one brother and my best friend over for lunch, it was gone in no time (actually, best friend’s baby was there as well – and I nearly forgot to post these last three pictures because they were buried among pictures of him – but he doesn’t eat lasanga yet. Or rather, he is not allowed to yet, but he already looked very interested.)
My balcony harvests are already worth over € 100. I still need tot add prices to my community garden spreadsheet to see how much that has been so far… I have no idea what lettuce and kohlrabi and zucchini would cost if I bought them…
And as always, there are lots of other harvests to be found at Daphne’s Dandelions.
