I picked a dinner plate full of Red Romaine, a green onion, a radish and two vine ripened tomatoes, along with a few pansies.
And made Mr H. a delicious, fresh salad for his dinner.
If you did manage to harvest something this week, join in the fun at Daphne's Dandelions, and show us what you have!
What a pretty salad. You're lucky!ReplyDelete
Love the pansy thrown if for extra color-have you ever grown Nasturtiums? They're supposed to be edible -kind of a peppery taste! I've never eaten a flower myself.
Looks delicious AG, but I am actually really enjoying this snow......and the reprieve from gardening.ReplyDelete
Looks yummy! We had salad yesterday also.ReplyDelete
Ok now I'm drooling. I've been relegated to coleslaw as my salad choice. Not that I dislike coleslaw. As a matter of fact I love it, but tomatoes would be really tasty right now.ReplyDelete
Granny, I love seeing your harvest for Harvest Monday! You worked extra hard for this! Your harvest looks beautiful! I hope Mr. H enjoyed the fresh tomatoes since he’s been carrying the pots in and out every day.ReplyDelete
Looks great! I had letttuces until the snow and freezing temps hit Friday... but that's okay since now I can regroup and start planning my spring garden!ReplyDelete
I bet Mr. H really liked the salad. Hmm....I may have to start some more lettuce, myself.ReplyDelete
Those tomatoes look like they were really good. In fact, the whole salad looks delicious!ReplyDelete
I am going to do an experiment this next year. I plan to grow four "celebrity" tomatoes in half barrels in the greenhouse. I think I will do two of them with foil mulch below them and two without and see if it makes a difference in production and health. Everything else would be the same (fairly controlled environment) so it should be a good comparison.
Sue, my nasturtiums tried to take over my garden last year and I pulled most of them out. Even the dwarf varieties got too large, as my soil is too fertile for them. I won't be planting them in the raised beds again.ReplyDelete
Kelly, my winter garden causes me more mental anguish than joy. I'm just not a desert gardener!
Villager, nice to see you here! I think my winter salads taste better for having to work harder to get them!
Daphne, the tomatoes had a nice flavor, much better than the cardboard store bought. The larger one was the best, just perfect. The small one was more bland and a bit mealy, like most "first" tomatoes.
Rachel, Mr. H is even talking about next winter's tomatoes! It doesn't take a lot to make that man happy, just fill his tummy.
EG, my lettuce isn't doing much yet, the red romaine was brought down here in a pot and has just about had its last picking.
Kitsap, I'm sending for seeds of several dwarf indeterminates. They are supposed to stay short, and being indeterminates I should be able to grow them at home and pinch off new starts from them to bring down here next winter.
Hooray for tomatoes! Looks lovely. But it does take a real mental shift to do desert gardening.ReplyDelete
Erin, I missed your comment the first time around....caught it on the second cup of coffee ;-)ReplyDelete
I'm getting the garden planning bug. I hate to admit that last night I made out an order for seven varieties of tomatoes. I need an intervention. Is there a 12 step program for tomato plant addiction?
Stefaneener, it sure does! I'm used to shoving in the seeds, then sitting back and watching them grow. Down here it's either to hot or too cold or too dry or too windy, and the critters are hungry!ReplyDelete
Great looking harvest Gran! There's nothing like a fresh salad! I hope you enjoyed it. I've never eaten pansies....does it even have a taste? Or is it just for show? :)ReplyDelete
Well, Thomas, my answer to you disappeared somewhere, so let's try this again! Pansies are edible, but I don't eat them. Annie does. She uprooted two plants and chewed them up all over the front porch rug yesterday. I've also seen her snap off a blossom and consume it.ReplyDelete
