We had another harvest on Sunday: this time we harvested mesclun mix salad greens, mizuna mustard, 2 radishes, and some baby tatsoi which we were thinning out to allow the remaining plants to grow big and delicious. The prize item was 4 cherry tomatoes. Which did not make it down to the dining hall, sorry.
I don’t have any pictures of the harvest, BUT, I do have a picture of this really pretty butterfly that was drying it’s wings in the morning sun! It’s a Limenitis arthemis astyanax (Red Spotted Purple) and it is I think the most spectacular butterfly found in Michigan. And I just looked it up on google and the caterpillar looks really bizarre! Go check it out!
Back to gardens… it’s a quiet week here with no students so I’m going to get some odds and ends jobs taken care of and get everything ready for next week!
