A first Harvest Monday!

Now that a 50ft tower graces the back of our rural abode, we have internet. So I can bring you harvests. The garden(s) are mostly still about input what with all the bed shaping and seeding for next year's splendor but I have had some outputs.

Massive 3 pie butternuts, organic (spotty) apples, potatoes and a few of the many, many Fatali that the two year old plant produced.

Digging in the old vegetable garden unearthed a good helping of potatoes. And the owners were kind to leave us with a surplus of apples and giant winter squash. I'll cook some of these apples up with Fatali habanero that are finally ripe - not your kid's apple sauce.

Greens in the low, winter sunlight.

Not too much still growing in the garden (we'll change that for next year) but I did harvest some parsley, sorrel, dill and violets for a green sauce.

Okay, break's over, back to work.

Habanero applesauce? Interesting. I hope you share more when you make it!

I am surprised you still have a growing garden up in Canada in mid-November. Nice harvest!

Lovely end of fall harvest! It sounds like you have the fun of discovering a new property and what was left behind from the prior owner/gardeners.

That will be some spicy applesauce. Sounds yummy. It will be fun to see what you do with your garden. New gardens are so much fun.

Congrats on the new tower! It's nice that you have a place where someone else has been gardening already. Now you can fine tune it to suit the way YOU garden! Leftovers are always good, even in the garden.
