Harvest has been all about the lettuce this past week! And I am quite ok with that.
We planted Crisp Mint Romain and we're loving it.
Along with lettuce though, we pulled our first few beets and 2 carrots to see how they were doing.
The beets looked great in my opinion - it is our first time growing them so it's been trail and error in choosing when to harvest.
Hubby doesn't remember which carrot seeds he planted. We pulled an orange one and a reddish one, so I am guessing at the least, he planted some Atomic Red carrot seed I had left over from last year.
The beets were roasted with dinner and the leftovers went into my lunch salad the next day.
We're so nice, we even let the horses enjoy the first carrot harvest of the season, greens and all. And of course, you know the spoiled ladies of the coop took away with all the beet greens!
Later, over the weekend, we pulled more beets and the rest of the carrots. We plan to plant a new patch.
These were the Detroit Red Beets.
We still have Bulls Blood Red Beets in the ground.

The Chard is growing in nicely and we picked our first big harvest of it on Saturday.

And we have begun to pick our Alaska Shelling Peas. Someone may or may not have been trying to steal them right out of the colander before they were even shelled!
