Ideas for small veggie harvests

15 years ago

Sometimes I harvest enough in a day for a side dish or even a whole meal (especially from my rampant summer squash plants), but other times, the pickins are slim.

Today for instance, only 8 snap beans were ready for harvest on my Maxibel plants, and 3 cherry tomatoes. I could have put them in the fridge and picked more tomorrow, but pshaw! I wanted to eat them today.

So I blanched them with a little onion and celery, and marinated them in a touch of apple cider vinegar, olive oil, a dash of sugar and salt. Right before serving them on top of a (storebought) Romaine lettuce salad, I tossed in the cherry tomatoes, halved. It really stretched the tiny harvest.

What do you do with small harvests?
