Mr. H got the new air compressor. Isn't it a beauty?
I just couldn't wait any longer. I had to pull a couple of carrots, just to see how close they are to eating size. They're still way too small, but I'm sure Cookie will love them....stems, leaves and all. In fact, he's nibbling at them like mad right now.
I also cut two individual heads of lettuce for our dinner. The pretty one on the left is a Yugoslavian Red from Dan, the green one is Buttercrunch. I pinched back some of the basil so it will bush out a bit more. With another small bowl of lettuce leaves, that brought today's harvest to 13 ounces. That puts my total 2009 harvest at exactly 13 pounds. Not bad for mostly greens!
I didn't weigh the four strawberries I picked today. They went straight from the garden to Mr. H's tummy. It's been a long time since we've eaten fresh picked berries!
* Added another 6 ounces to the produce total, I needed onions for tonight's chicken & noodles.
