As we gear up for Phase 2 of the garden (that’s Summer time), our Spring plants are in full bloom and ready to be picked. If you open up our fridge right now you’ll see bags and bags of wrapped greens, peas and more.
Soon we’ll be transitioning our containers to the Summer soybeans, watermelons and cantaloupes which means many of our leafy greens need to be picked. Radishes are usually planted 3-4 times a year and the first harvest is already ready. As soon as the radishes are picked, then the new seeds are planted immediately after (literally minutes later!). The radishes reside next to the carrots which we’re all anxiously waiting for.
Each head weighs almost 2 pounds. I’ve been looking at new ways to store them and I found the foil method which is wrapping up lettuce in aluminum foil and then putting in the fridge. I’ve tried this with a head about 10 days ago and the head still looks brand new!
Next up… sugar snap peas. Don’t you just love veggie season?
