Delicious Volunteers

July 7th, 2016

I always have a few volunteer potatoes, it’s hard to get every single little tuber out of the ground when you harvest them. They’re always welcome, I harvest them all as new potatoes since they grow up in areas of the garden where I have other things planted.

We enjoyed these little lovelies for breakfast the other morning, browned in bacon great with a few onions. You just can’t beat the delicious flavor of new potatoes!

What are you harvesting from you garden this week?

    I’m pulling a lot of peppers lately! Cukes on occasion but they are slowing down because of the heat.

    Not much yet… some cilantro and other herbs, zucchini, garlic scapes, maybe a few young onions. Oh, and the ‘volunteer’ lambs quarters, one of my favorite greens because I don’t have to do any work at all to get them to grow!

    I’ve harvested peas, raspberries, spinach and a little broccoli. I will have a zucchini ready this week and one lone cherry tomato is thinking of turning color. We’ve also had a few baby potatoes – delicious!

    This week, I am still harvesting peas.The March planting has been picked and vines pulled. Probably this week, I’ll pick all of the peas from the April planting.
