Harvest Monday: October 26, 2015

Welcome to my Harvest Monday posting.  Carrots were the main item this weekend as I pulled everything I had (just over 4 pounds in total).  The majority are from a Rainbow Mix and the darker ones are the Nutri-Red; not sure why the Nutri-Red are so much smaller, maybe just a poor job thinning them out.

And this laughable harvest of cauliflower.  If I have seeds left, I might give it another go next year but I think I've pretty much given up on cauliflower.  These are as big as the heads got ...the rest were still very small when the freezing temperatures hit a week or two ago and they didn't survive.  These two little heads were the only bits that were still firm.

I also harvested some horseradish but haven't done anything with it yet.  Most of my time in the yard these days is spent cleaning up, putting pots away, etc.  I'm reorganizing the beds but not sure I'll have it all done before winter hits.

Hopefully I'll still have something to share next week.  In the meantime, I'll head over to Our Happy Acres and see what others have going on this week.


  1. The harvests are definitely getting smaller and smaller. I'll be pulling out my carrots soon as well - I need to get that bed cleaned up. That's too bad about he cauliflower - at least you did get a couple of heads to harvest. I doubt I'll be trying cauliflower anytime soon...I already have enough challenges in the garden!

    1. Yes, I think I'll refocus on things I know how to do ... beef up my confidence on some easier stuff for a while. :)

  2. You're braver than I am to grow the cauliflower. I gave up on it some time ago. And your carrots look great compared to mine too!

  3. I gave up on cauliflower, I didn't even get a tiny head. We are all busy winterizing our garden I too am hoping to get everything squared away before it gets too cold.
