First Harvest

Post  greatgranny on 6/21/2014, 4:07 pm

Have a few things that were harvested today.  A few strawberries and some scapes and all of my multiplier onions which are now in a safe place to cure. 

I planted 4 squares of onions and they did way better than last year.  I think planting them in the same place is a good idea. 

Any suggestions as to what I could plant in those squares now?  

What to do with scapes.  I have lots in the refrigerator right now.  Hmmmm.

Lovely harvest.  Feels good, right?
I put my skapes in a baggie in the freezer. They thaw out the same as they went in.  GG, are those multiplier onions the same as potato onions?

Yes, they are potato onions.

So I don't have to blanch the skapes?

Saving the strawberries in the freezer until they have stopped bearing.  Hard to not want to sit and eat them as I pick but...

I think you can use the scapes as is...I just minced them up with rosemary, green onion, and some chive to make an herb butter for grilled red potatoes.

I sauteed them in butter and then toasted it on french bread to make garlic bread.

That sounds like a great idea.  I'll try it soon.  I have some rosemary and chives.  Thanks.

Another good idea.  Love garlic bread with pasta.  Thanks.

Now that my shelling peas are done - wonder if it would make sense to plant more in the squares that had my multiplier onions.  If so, being in zone 4, when would be a good time to plant them?  The average  first frost is middle of September, I think.

Tried to find pea seeds this time of year.  Missed it by 1 day.  The seeds were picked up by the distributor.  Hmm.  Thought there would be some so I could plant some more peas. 

What else could I plant that would go into the fall before frost?  I am zone 4.  No broccoli, etc.  I'm really not wanting any more of that for a while.

Sounds like a plan.  Thanks.  Have to plant something where the onions and garlic were.  Can't leave that many squares empty.  Next spring I will put most of it into peas.

Thanks, Camprn.
