Harvest Monday: October 9, 2017

Happy Thanksgiving Canada!  And I hope everyone is enjoying some good treats from the garden.

This beautiful basil was made into a pesto that went straight into the freezer. I hope I can keep the plants alive for one last harvest, but they are rather more bare looking now than in the photo.

I've harvested some carrots and more peppers, with a bit more of each still in the garden.

There might be a bit more swiss chard to pick, but I harvested most of it as it is getting nibbled by something else.

I have shelled all of the dried beans but haven't tallied them up yet.  Will get to that soon.   I look forward to seeing what other gardeners around the world are doing in this beautiful Harvest Monday but stopping by Our Happy Acres.


  1. My favourite pesto is made with basil but we didn't grow nearly enough this year. You've kept yours going very well!

  2. A belated Happy Thanksgiving. Your basil looks perfect. Mine is all gone to bloom but I'm still using it anyway.

  3. Happy Thanksgiving to you! Your basil looks lovely for this late in the season. You remind me I need to make some more before the frosts come.
