CSA Harvest #5, etc.

This week's CSA harvest, the fifth of the season: left to right, cabbage head, red beets and greens, HUGE broccoli head, bag of mesclun mix (mixed baby lettuce leaves), fennel bulb, two heads (red and green) of kohlrabi, lacinato kale, Waxahalia onions, and bag of arugula.


Plus, some shots from the garden:

And the summer's first tray of wheatgrass. I keep my house so cool in the winter that the grass doesn't grow well. The second tray is an experiment: I've seeded a mesclun mix to see if I can begin raising trays of salad greens indoors in trays. It's been a few days and they haven't germinated yet, so not sure how well this will work.


Update: Just noticed this morning the first lettuce seed germinating, so maybe this will work!
