This was the best week yet, which is not surprising. Yields should continue to increase through the summer. Production of strawberries has fallen from last week at just under a pound, now 3.4 pounds for the year. Since this is the first full year I'm pleased with the yields, heck any strawberries are better than nothing. No pics this time.
I picked the remaining spinach, about a pound, as it was getting ready to bolt.
The cole crops gave me two bulbs of kohlrabi averaging a pound and a half each, and a head of Major broccoli, 10 ounces. I picked this head a few days after picking a head of Green Magic broccoli, which was nearly a pound. I think I'm sold on the Green Magic. I like an early broccoli.
Also a head of Gonzalez cabbage, a pound and a half. I cooked the cabbage with bratwurst from my neighbor, such a simple dish but so good. The rabbits get the outer leaves.
I haven't grown sugar snap peas for several years. This is not a pea-friendly climate, and after three years in a row when May temperatures suddenly jumped to 90 F I just gave up on them. Then last spring was more like a normal spring so I planted them this year. What's there to lose? I like them best stir-fried very quickly for about a minute. Only six ounces but what a treat.
Finally the new deck just off the back door is finished. The floorboards got a growth of mildew over the spring which had to be removed with a solution of bleach. Three coats of stain were applied and the spindles were attached. It's a great place to relax and watch nature, and best of all, it's done.
