If only I had that hoop house up as planned! (Sigh.) It will have to be another day. Regardless, I am still harvesting from the garden. The swiss chard is just non-stop. Though slightly damaged by heavy frosts, the leaves underneath are still as crisp and tasty as ever.
Peek-a-boo carrots, I see you. Will still be using these for soups even if snow falls.
I still have several good dinners of brussel sprouts. I think I will be picking the remainder of these in the next few days, however, before the snow falls.
There may be a parsnip under here! The nasturtium-gone-wild sort of took over and shaded the parsnips. But after several heavy frosts, the nasturtium is now compost and a few parsnip surprises were uncovered.
I just love arugula. I wonder if this will survive the first few snows? I’ll keep on eating it as long as it keeps on keeping on.
Hmmm, it might be nice to have some sunflower seeds for snacking. Did the birds leave me anything?
Luckily, I picked all my green tomatoes before the heavy frosts. I was going to keep them in paper bags or newspaper – something I read somewhere – to see if they’d ripen in the cellar. But they never quite got as far as a bowl on the counter. They began turning red anyway and I thought I should take a picture before I ate them all. They taste just as fresh as ever. Ah, there were more … sort of reminds me of Christmas.
Can you believe my neighbor is already all lit up for Christmas? What happened to Thanksgiving?
