Rule #18: Better Late than Never! (Harvest "Monday")
So this week we are still getting decent strawberries. Less than before but the overbearing are putting on new flowers. The new harvest this week was the Tatsoi and Peas. I have decided that shelling peas are good but not enough of a harvest for the space they take up. I would now prefer snow or snap peas, but I am going to use up all the seeds I have first. Larkyn and now Mckinley both love peas so that is why I originally started growing them. I decided to pick them young so that we could eat them like a snow pea. This worked out for most of them, but a couple of them were a touch to big and tough. I will let the rest mature to peas and we will make a nice risotto out of it. The first Tatsoi was good. I have had to be diligent about getting eggs and caterpillars off of them though! We had some steamed on a salad with other steamed veggies and them I made a stir fry with them also. Both ways were tasty. I look forward to a good fall crop and perhaps trying different asian greens in the future. I have a few more in the garden still to harvest in the coming week or two.
