Swiss chard, Red Russian kale, and one red onion harvested as green onion
This is our first year growing and tasting turnip, and quite possibly our last year. Since the roots are still very small, there wasn't much to eat of them, but I steamed the green tops after finding out that they are edible. Well, "edible" may be a subjective term, because Keith made the most pathetic "I'm never eating this again" face. I didn't think it tasted good, but it also wasn't all that bad. Okay, maybe medium-bad. But it's probably not something that I would choose to buy to cook for myself. So it goes into the category of "I'm only eating this because I grew it."
Sadly, our lettuce is starting to get bitter. I harvested some Prizehead, Red Romaine, and Quattro Stagioni (seeds shared by Robin). Although he rejected the turnip greens, Keith did eat two large salads made with this semi-bitter lettuce, so all was not lost with the harvesting of greens this weekend.
