End of May Harvest

Not quite Monday morning but I decided to do a quick summary of my harvest this week, starting with some pitiful strawberries all being small and misshapen, some garlic scapes, kohlrabi and first harvest of spinach from the strip that was planted on May 1 in the large garden.
 Then I plucked alot more salad out of the old garden to clear out some space around cabbages.
Here we have weights on all 3 above.
Salad came up to 1 lb 1.4 oz
First peas were picked in middle of the week and my hubby ate them, and I had my share just two days after him. I also got to snack on first cauliflower! I really should have waited for it to grow out.
more strawberries were picked but not eaten - they were combined with my first batch and turned into a jam.
it turned out to be 3 half-pint jars of jam. Not too bad on taste after I added some freshly squeezed lemon for freshness and it really brought out the brightness of it.

    1. i planted a fresh strip of it in may about 10 feet long and it's just now really took off in growth. Heat was horrible for it and some did start to bolt but most of the bed is in shade so it was semi-protected. I hope to get couple more harvests out of it before summer really sets in.

    1. thank you, but considering the amount of strawberry plants i have i should be swimming in them, but instead I have just couple of handfuls. i do hope next year will be better.

  7. If I could I'd trade you some snow peas for some of your strawberries. They look so good.

  9. Those strawberries look perfectly yummy to me and that jam even better! Wishing it would warm up a bit here so our strawberry plants would lay on the good stuff for us too.

  11. What a lovely and varied harvest you have! My peppers have begun to bloom but I didn't check which variety was first. Actually they are marking time in their pots until I can get them in the ground; hopefully this weekend.
