First of all, I hope everyone had a wonderful and safe Christmas. Ours was very nice with having all four grandkids in the house at once. It was really a lot of fun!
Anyway here we are, poised at the end of another gardening year. It seems that it sure went by fast in that this Harvest Monday is the last one for 2011.
So here's the latest info:
The marconi peppers are finally finished producing for the year with these little ones weighing a total of just three and a half ounces.
We picked one and one-quarter pounds of buttercrunch lettuce from a few of the plants in the two rows we have.
We picked eight and one-quarter pounds of collards for taking to our family Christmas dinner. The whole family is looking forward to them.
Two Inspectors from the Bureau of Broccoli came by to inspect the crop and said that it was ready for a small harvest.
We ended up harvesting our first pound of broccoli this week. It's delicious!
If you recall that celery root that I planted in a container, this pic shows the harvest from it. No, not the big stalks. The little sprigs at the bottom left. I couldn't resist using them as part of the Christmas stuffing/dressing that I make. They weighed a whopping one ounce.
Well, that concludes a year of Harvest Mondays. I have sure enjoyed reading all the blogs that were part of the Harvest Mondays hosted by DaphnesDandelions. I want to say thanks to all the people that have visited my blog in the past year and those that shared their comments with me.
Best wishes to everyone for the new year, and have a great vegetable gardening day.
