November 21, 2012 - Today's Harvest



There are still a few things left to harvest from the 2012 garden.  The carrots are lovely, and I'll be watching the forecast for freezing temperatures so I can toss some bags of leaves over the rows for insulation from the cold.  The cabbages are small and suffering from insect damage, but at least one was nearly a pound in weight after the outer leaves were removed.  It doesn't look as though the earlier freeze bothered them at all, so I really need to get them all harvested soon.  


Today's harvest of  a 15.6 ounce cabbage and 14.7 ounces of carrots puts my total for the year at 1033 pounds.

May you all have a blessed and happy Thanksgiving.  We're going to the youngest daughter's for Thanksgiving dinner, so I'll have a restful day (I get to do Christmas).  All I have to take are a butternut squash casserole, two pumpkin pies and whipped cream.  Everything except the squash is all ready to go.

  4. Happy Thanksgiving from down under! We are even celebrating here in Australia (although I admit it is with a wonderful American friend). I wish we celebrated Thanksgiving here in a bigger way!

  5. Yum pie. I hope we have some good pumpkin pie there. My son always wants me to bring it as he likes the Libby's recipe and it is the one I use. I just starting making the pies I'm bringing. I'm letting the pie crust rest in the fridge right now.

    Happy Thanksgiving. Have a great day with your family.

    1. Thank you, Ed. It's always nice when I can let someone else do the cooking. Of course, I took a casserole of butternut squash :-)

    1. Thanks, Nancy. I ate too much, as usual! That's the best part of Thanksgiving.

      Yes, the carrots are nice and sweet. I'm quite sure these were Burpee A#1Hybrid, although they might be Imperator. I didn't pay much attention to which variety I planted where, but the Imperator are usually longer and more slender.
