Harvest Monday: November 6, 2017
It is so close to the end of the season here, but I might still have a goodie or two left in the garden for another week. In the meantime, a dip in the temperature forced me to harvest all remaining (mostly unripe) peppers in the greenhouse (it isn't heated). Most of these are Feher Ozon, with more Hungarian Hot Wax. They were chopped up, along with what was left of the last pepper harvest, for a mixed sweet and hot pepper jam.
I also took the opportunity of a less rainy day (Saturday) to harvest the carrots and parsnips so I can wrap up that part of the garden for the year. The carrots were mostly Nantes with a few mix coloured carrots for a total of 4.5 pounds. The parsnips are Hollow Crown - not as rust-resistant as my previous type Albion but ended up with an okay batch of 2.5 pounds.
And a few days before a recent frost last week, I picked a big bunch of parsley. It's been a pretty good season overall, and I look forward to tallying up the final results soon - pretty close to last year from what I can tell weight-wise, but I had much better luck with the summer squash and cukes this year so no surprise!
I will be popping over to Our Happy Acres to see what Dave and the Harvest Monday gang are doing this week ... you should check it out too!
