Not much to talk about this week when it comes to harvest, just salads (claytonia, mache, red romaine, deertongue lettuce) and greens (chard, and kale). The girls provided some eggs but they have dropped in their production the last few weeks and one was broody for awhile so she wasn't doing much but laying in a nesting box.
We also had our first Saturday of the year and one of our goals (check them all out here) is to make a detailed list of what our local farmers market has every week. We want to learn what other farmers are growing on our area, develop relationships with them and learn from them. Plus the public can learn how easy it is to eat seasonally.
Herbs- dill, cilantro, parsley, and lemongrass.
Fruit- grapefruits, many varieties of apples, hachiya persimmons, oranges, kiwi, mandarins, lemons, Mexican limes, and Palestine limes.
Greens- red Russian kale, dinosaur kale, curly kale, bok choy, arugula, mustard greens, collard greens, many different types of lettuce, tatsoi, swiss chard and spinach.
Root veggies- carrots, beets, turnips, daikon, radish, sweet potatoes, and many types of potatoes.
Others- Butternut squash, acorn squash, many types of winter squashes, red cabbage, regular cabbage, napa cabbage, broccoli, romanesco cauliflower, celery, onions, sweet onions, garlic, green onion, leeks, mushrooms, sunchokes, avocado, and chayote.
We were thankful and somewhat amazed at the bounty of our little town...it is January remember! The variety is wonderful and just proves that eating seasonally is really no big deal.
Happy Harvest Monday, we are linking up with Daphne's Dandelions...so go check out with others are harvesting around the world.
