Harvest Monday - February 20, 2012

Well, Harvest Monday is almost over, somehow I miss a day this week thinking today is Sunday, sorry for posting the harvest so late in the day.

The overwintered Piracicaba broccoli is beginning to bolt, I harvested all the shoots and pulled the plants.  The potted rosemary and mint overwintered in the living room are putting out new growth, I gave them haircut today and air dry the leaves for later use.

Harvest Monday is hosted by Daphne's Dandelions, drop by Daphne's place to see more garden harvests by other gardeners around the globe.


  1. A vision of green. I'm going through something of a mint phase at the moment - I'm putting it in everything, yours looks beautifully healthy - mine less so due to the heat of summer I suppose.

  2. I did the same thing. I noticed it was monday about 8am when I normally already have it posted. Luckily I noticed then. Holidays really throw me off.

  3. I think we were all running a bit late Monday because of the holiday. Your broccoli looks delicious even if it was wanting to go to flower.

  4. Liz,
    Summer heat is killer for some plants, my herbs look good in spring, by mid summer they started to go down hill except parsley and sage, wish I can grown lemongrass here, hum.......

    Whenever hubby is home I think saturday/sunday, every December and January I could be 1-2 weeks off because he's home for 6 weeks, and my timing/schedule is WAY~~off.

    Yes, the broccoli was tender and sweet even with the flowers, I made a chopped salad with it.

  5. Reminds me I need to check the broccoli under the row covers... lovely mint, time for tea!

  6. Broccoli at the flowering stage is still tender and delicious when home grown and used as soon as harvested sooooo much better than store bought. You basket is so nicely arranged.

  7. To answer your question, I have some peas in the greenhouse, the Little Marvel and the Dwarf Grey Sugars are in there. I have other peas outdoors but they have not done as well. The ones planted early were knocked back and mostly killed by the very low temps in Dec (in the 20s) but the Mammoth Melting Sugars planted in Dec are looking very good.

  8. Norma,
    Thank you.

    Thanks for the info, I think I'm going to regret starting the Harbin pea seeds early, our night temps are in teens and low 20s, they sprouted today and we are leaving for vacation soon (>"<)

  9. Very nice photo of your harvest...
