Harvest Monday 5/19

It has been a while since I have participated in the Harvest Monday hop at Daphne's Dandelions. I thought maybe I would jump in with today's harvest. Not much variety, but a good bunch of spinach and lettuce that I am pleased to be getting in abundance. I attempted to make my own creamed spinach the other day with the bags I had pulled in then, but I wasn't too happy with it. If you have a good creamed spinach recipe, please share!
Spinach and Lettuce

My daughter had herself a plant stand sale instead of the typical lemonade stand. She made $16 in 1 1/2 hours. I'm pretty sure that is way better than a lemonade stand! ;) She still has more to sell too. Hopefully there are still folks looking for some tomato plants.
Happy Harvesting!


  1. Creamed spinach is my favorite! Here's my (yummy, but not completely "healthy") recipe:
    Several cups finely chopped cooked spinach.
    Basic white sauce:
    2 tablespoons butter
    2 tablespoons flour
    1 cup milk
    Melt butter on low temp. Stir in flour slowly. Keep stirring until the mix no longer has a raw flour taste. Slowly stir in milk with a whisk. Keep whisking until fairly thick.
    Add white pepper, garlic powder, onion powder to your preferences, and add a dash or two of nutmeg.
    Blend in spinach and heat through.

  2. Lovely harvest. Sadly I've never made creamed spinach so can't help you out. I hope you find a good one.

  3. I have never made creamed spinach so no help there. I love your daughters plant stand idea. Good for her and for you in encouraging her! Nancy

  4. This was a really great read, appreciation for taking the time to put it together! Touched on some very good...
