This Week's Harvest

turnip greens and salad
This past week, I harvest another big bowl of mesclun. It feels nice not having to buy lettuce from the supermarket. I also thinned my hakurei turnips and harvested a nice bunch of turnip greens. I've never had turnip greens before and will have to find a good recipe for them. The turnips themselves should be ready for harvest later on this week.

I also harvested the last of my tatsoi and pak choi sowed back in July. These were devoured by August pests and look pretty damaged but have tasted really good (trimmed up of course). In a couple of weeks, my late August sowing of pak choi and flowering brassica should be ready. I can't wait!

Finally, as posted earlier, I harvested the rest of my red altaglobe radishes. I gave most of them away and with the rest, I quick pickled. Recipe to follow.


  1. Oh that makes me so sad not to be growing pak choi this year. I grew it last year but didn't like the variety. I'll have to find a better one next year.

  2. I just discovered your blog through Daphne's Harvest Monday post. Beautiful photography. I can't wait to catch up on your posts later.

  3. Beautiful harvest! That mesclun looks so fresh and good. I've found it difficult to buy lettuce mixes after growing my own, the store bought stuff is so disappointing.

  4. The Asian greens are spectacular! I had some growing but the birds got to them before me :-(
