The Harvest Report

Posted on

My first year keeping track of what I have harvested.

I am now keeping a notebook logging in the veggies and herbs that I harvest from my gardens.

The winner so far:

Scallions. Fifty four of them to date. Thinning out those onions has given me more green onions than I can quickly use. But, that’s a good thing. I use them all the time. The onions in the garden benefit from the thinning.

I also have a dozen spears of asparagus from my forage site. Less than other years, so far. Still, a little bit of asparagus will brighten up many dishes.

17 ounces of greens. Chard and kale, mostly. The row cover makes all the difference.

A dozen garlic scapes from my back yard. And a handful of spring garlic. Add some herbs for garnish. Like thyme, basil and dill.

All in all, not a bad haul for the first month.

Here’s to a very productive gardening season.

About AnnieRie

Retired, I am following my dream of living in quiet west Howard County, a rural oasis, not far from the urban chaos, but just far enough. I love to cook, bake, garden, and travel. I volunteer at Howard County Conservancy. I lead nature hikes, manage programs and show children all the wonders of nature, and the agricultural connection to their food.
