The End of May Harvest
It's only fitting that the end of May harvest should coincide with the end of our Spring greens. During the past few days, temperatures have reached into the high 80's and as a result many of our cool weather greens have started to bolt. This seems rather sudden considering that we were experiencing nightly low's down in the 40's only a couple weeks ago. Yesterday, I harvested all of our spinach and as much of the mizuna as I could salvage. I'm really happy with how the spinach performed this spring. The plants grew huge and we ended up with a ton of leaves to freeze.
I also ripped out all of our Asian greens. These will last in the fridge for a long time...hopefully until the snow peas come in. Some of the outer leaves are a bit hole-y from the slugs but these should be fine once trimmed up.
Our lettuces are coming in strong right now. We have to eat as much as we can before they begin to bolt as well.
