7.30.13 Garden Bouquets


Vegetables are trickling in, beginning with carrot thinnings…


…a mixed bouquet of radishes…


…joined by the first of the cucumbers…


…and summer squash, and the last of the peas.

Harvesting this week:
Salad greens, kale, chard, peas, favas, cucumbers, summer squash, radishes, and carrots.

Putting-up: Canned tomato-vegetable broth.

  1. Love these photos. And looks like it’s time for stuffed squash blossoms!

    What is the name of the long red radish? Nice carrot thinning, they must sweet and tender.

      We grow two types of long red radishes β€” Cincinatti Market from Seed Savers, and Japanese Long Scarlet from Kitazawa. You’re right about the carrot thinnings, they’re a treat simply glazed in the pan with a pat of butter!

    Beautiful photos. Your carrot thinnings are bigger than my carrots and the radishes are beautiful.

    • leduesorelle says:

      Thanks, Dave, so’s your maiden harvest of garlic! We generally can grow things that like cooler conditions, like radishes, and the napoli carrots did well, but the red cored chantenay weren’t terribly obliging…

    It’s lovely company you keep, radishes and young carrots, the last of the peas. Here on Saddleback Mountain (not far from you) I just followed the last of the peas with new plantings that I planted fairly deep and mulched with old hay. That and lots of water and maybe come September I’ll have two stands running the length of the garden. Sugar Anns. They’re not my favorite, but they come quickly, and Fall peas of any kind are always a small victory, one worth talking about.

    A feast for the eye and soul! Tough competition but for me the summer squash stole the show. So lucky to have all this goodness!

  6. Your carrots looks wonderful especially since my first planting never came through. I replanted and they are up and I hope we will get some before the snow flies.

  7. The best kind of bouquets! Those squash flowers look massive!

  8. Patsy says:

    Very pretty bouquets! Your carrot thinnings look better than most of my fully grown carrots ever look!
