Harvest Monday: October 13, 2014 (Happy Thanksgiving Canada!)
What better use for a fall harvest than for a Thanksgiving Day celebration! Well, I think most of us have dinner on Sunday as it's most convenient for people who are traveling. So yesterday, I used some of my recent harvest to make this pasta with sausage, pumpkin, sage and kale (the last two from my garden).
I also harvested some parsley, thyme, rosemary and a wee little broccoli - the last I have of it. Although it is too late to expect side shoots, I have left the broccoli in the garden in the hopes that the deer will nibble it rather than the cabbage planted right next to it.
And I managed to fit in a bit of cleanup work over the holiday weekend such as weeding the tomato garden. I dug up some potatoes from a volunteer plant - I'm surprised I didn't dig up more as I thought I had a few volunteers in that garden.
And that's it. Pop by Daphne's Dandelions for a view of what other folks are harvesting this weekend!

Happy Thanksgiving, Susie! I see you did the herb & broccoli harvest like me - never thought to do a pasta for Thanksgiving but it does sound delicious! Those potatoes look great, btw.ReplyDelete
The pasta had so many great fall flavours, it seemed perfect for Thanksgiving!Delete
What a perfect use for a garden harvest indeed - ingredients for a holiday meal! Your pasta looks delicious.ReplyDelete
I love being able to feed friends and family from the garden, it seems so much more special somehow.Delete
Happy Thanksgiving. Very nice, sausage, pumpkin and sage is a great flavor combination. Now I have to go see if I can rescue my sage plant from the brambles that invaded my herb garden.ReplyDelete
Good luck with the sage ... ugh, brambles!Delete
That pasta looks really delicious. And Happy Thanksgiving.ReplyDelete
Happy Thanksgiving! Mmm, sausage, pumpkin, sage, and kale - delicious. I agree, it is special to be able to feed friends and family from the garden.ReplyDelete
I'm sure the pasta complimented the other, more traditional Thanksgiving foods. It looks wonderful.ReplyDelete
