Harvest Report

There has been so much that has needed harvesting with the cool and super wet weather that we have been having that I just can’t keep up with it all.  This is a collection from my home garden and my community garden plot: many tomatoes, fairy tale eggplant, leeks, small wonder spaghetti squash, zucchini, a baby cinderella pumpkin, and hops from the community plot (what the heck am I going to do with the hops???)



I also needed to pull out some carrots from the home garden before the dreaded rust fly burrowed in.



And I’ve been pulling beets for almost 8 weeks now, whenever we want them for dinner.



 Needless to say our dinner plates have been very colourful the past few weeks!

    Tons of great harvest, very colorful and healthy. Your carrots also look great! It’s so rewarding to grow our own food, I love it!

    Fabulous harvest. And to the hops question. Make beer! What else would you grow them for but beer? No I’ve never made it myself. I remember making root beer once as a kid, but don’t remember much about it. My dad made beer on occasion and my mother made wine, but I’ve never made either.

    What a beautiful harvest, very nice variety! The beets look delicious, I’d love to grow them as well. The first photo is really colorful and bright – like from a magazine.

    Very impressive fall harvest! I would be jumping up and down with joy to pull up carrots and beets that looked like yours. These underground root crops are always a mystery until you pull them out, and mine just haven’t turned out right yet.

    Awww, I’ve been eating a ton of beets, too! I’m jealous of your tomatoes, though. I didn’t get hardly any this year – been having to buy mine at the Farmer’s Market. Oh well. We just didn’t have a very warm summer.
