Harvest Monday

I'm participating in Daphne's Dandelions 'Harvest Monday'!

And I guess this would be our first official harvest for 2010.....minus the herbs. I am bad about tracking the herbs since a lot of the time I am just running out there snipping off some to throw into dinner. Although, yesterday, I took a huge bunch of Parsley to my mom.

.126# of Easter Egg Radish

We probably would have had a tad more but hubby ate one before I could weigh them in. Hence the greens with no Radish on the right!

.520# of Broccoli

Our Broccoli was starting to bolt and so we had to start harvesting.

And last, our Garlic Scapes came in at 1.83 oz.

And it is all still in the fridge waiting for me to decide what to do with it all tonight :)

If you have a recipe that uses scapes or radishes, please feel free to send my way! I also have Strawberries, Rhubarb and Bok Choy I purchased at a Farmer's Market this weekend that I need to cook up!

Happy Monday!

I made pesto with my garlic scapes. I put it in the food processer along with olive oil and some walnuts. I added parmesan cheese after it was all blended up. We also added the scapes to a frittata, and put them on pizza.

I harvested my last radishes 2 months ago. I already miss them. Great harvest!

I second the suggestion of garlic scape pesto. Make a bunch and freeze it!

Thats what I did: http://grownaway.blogspot.com/2010/06/garlic-scape-pesto.html

Never tried scapes before, the pesto ideas sound good though.

It seems like everyone is making pesto these days...I guess it's definitely worth trying.

We've been getting pretty funky weather this Spring...amazingly, our broccoli hasn't started to bolt yet.

Hi there - Rebecca here from www.marketlifesf.blogspot.com glad to hear you tried the jam - honestly I've done this a few times and end up with different consistencies every time. It will probably get a little thicker. The first time I did it I forgot about it and almost burned it - that batch was thick! Had some this morning on toast - hope it tastes good!

Oh I love garlic scapes. I use it to make salad dressing every year. I think I might post it this week since it is very timely.

I like making pesto with the scapes too!
