This was an exciting week! We harvested our first, second, third, fourth and fifth tomatoes! That's right, a total of 5 tomatoes in one week! Looks like all the patience has paid off and I couldn't be happier!
These are Yellow Taxi Tomatoes and are super yummy. The skins are a little thick, but that's to be expected here. We've had them sliced up with a little salt, with scrambled eggs and as part of a salsa for fish tacos.
I also harvested some spinach throughout the week to throw into various meals, as well as a few sugar snap peas and a handful of carrots. The peas are slow, but still producing and still fantastic.
Here's this weeks breakdown:
Carrots = 4 ounces
Spinach = 5 ounces
Tomatoes = 12 ounces
Snap Peas = 2 ounces
Alright, now it's time for the Garden Mystery of the week...
|Something flashy caught my eye while harvesting a few days ago...|
|Upon closer inspection, I thought I'd hit the jackpot!!! Silver and gold in the garden?!?!|
|Just the slightest indentation on the back of the leaf|
The question is - Can you grow gold and silver in your garden??? And if you can't, what creature lays gold and silver eggs?!?!
Harvest Monday is hosted by Daphne at daphnesdandelions. Check out what she's harvesting, as well as what many, many others are harvesting!
Hope you all have a fantastic day!
