Harvest Monday: 6/25/2012 First Fruits


Summer is here, hardly feels like it. Fruits berries and veggie patch is looking fuller and greener day by day. Constant rain in May June has only advantage – NO watering. I am yet to water veggie patch or even front lawn for this year. Occasional sun and constant rain is a little boon for cool loving vegetables. Methi, Sorrel, peas and cabbage are thriving.


First Strawberries were picked this week, just 2 on Tuesday, they were yummy.


Few more days, and first raspberries were ripe


I picked a lone swelled French Breakfast Radish, made it into carrots-radish-onion koshimbir.



On Sunday, I picked small bunch of fenugreek Methi. It wasn’t growing much as I planted it in wrong container. I also picked outer leaves of French Sorrel (Ambat Chuka), gave me enough to make methi-chuka bhaji for one meal. Few snap peas, snips of chives and few more berries rounded a nice Sunday harvest.
