Harvest Monday 11/8/10

We enjoyed a fall salad this week with carrots, red lettuce, raddicchio, pea greens and kohlrabi.
I also harvested chicory/italian dandelion and leek for a quiche.
Another 1 lb 9 oz of tomatoes ripened, along with a few hot peppers from the indoor pepper plants.And I picked 2 pounds of brussels sprouts to accompany a dinner of smoked pork tenderloin and our own mashed potatoes.


Total this week: 4.62 pounds
Total this year: 448.5 pounds
You can see what other gardeners harvested this week at Daphne's Dandelions.

Beautiful and most impressive November harvest Emily, well done. I find it so lovely that we still are able to harvest from our gardens and put food on the table.

Wow, that is a lot of variety. THe dandelion greens look wonderful.

I envy your wonderful crops, Emily! Here in Sweden I have to settle with pictures of this year's harvests...
Have a great week,

Such lovely Brussels Sprouts! I didn't grow them this year so I'll have to admire what others grow. Nice looking greens too.

All of it looks just great! I hope my Brussels sprouts produce as well as yours have.

I agree with Tyra that it's really good that we can grow our own food for our tables. I think it's fulfilling. I love to see my little grandbabies eating the veggies from my garden!

Your Brussel Sprouts are wonderful! This is my first year growing them and they are still small. The plants are big and healthy though. Do you know how long they will survive in the cold?

Marcia said...

What a lot of sprouts. Did you oven roast them with garlic?

No harvest post for me this week. Harvesting is done.

I did not grow brussel sprouts this year to make room for some other desired crops - and I am missing them terribly since this is the season we usually are relishing them. There really is no comparison to fresh home grown sprouts -- cooked well and immediately after harvesting. I think more people would really like them if they tasted them served garden fresh and not cooked to death!

Beautiful harvest this week. Most impressive!

Lovely Brussels sprouts, I started my seeds too late to get a harvest this fall, if it survives the cold I may get lucky and get something next spring.

Dan said...

Your sprouts are looking real good this season! Mine are still tiny, I am almost ready to give up on them.

Daphne said...

Those Brussels sprouts look wonderful. I've yet to grow them. I tried seeds once but they didn't germinate.

Your brussel sprouts look awesome. Love brussel sprouts. I've never eaten kohlrabi before. What does it taste like?

Beautiful! I'm envious of your Brussels sprouts. I haven't grown them in years (I have a tiny garden) and they're my favorite, favorite vegetable! I can't get enough of them.
