Today I harvested several carrots, three asparagus spears, lots of snap peas and a few broccoli side shoots. Thanks to the rain washing the pencil marks off my plant tags, I have no idea what variety the carrots are, but I recall planting Nantes, Danvers 126, Royal Chantanay and Tonda di Parigi. At nearly 8 inches long, the two carrots in the center are the biggest carrots I've ever grown!
I also harvested a variety of fresh lettuces including radicchio, green and red Oak Leaf, Garnet Rose Romaine, Rouge D'Hiver Romaine, and Buttercrunch Bibb.
But the pièce de résistance was this, my first kohlrabi. Isn't it a beaut?
I think it looks a bit alien with its round shape and its multiple arms, I mean, stems.
Are you harvesting any veggies today? I'd love to hear about your haul!
