Note to Michele: The Last of the Harvest

Hi Michele,

The last of the produce has been gathered in. We had a frost this week, so it was time to collect anything tender. Just a few hardy greens remain in my gardens and time for clean up and preparing the beds for winter is at hand.
I harvested herbs: lemon balm, mints, sage, chives, and others...
loads of green tomatoes and peppers. I chopped, blanched and froze peppers to use in recipes this winter.
I used my dehydrator for some herbs and hot peppers...
and here is my Dad's butternut squash. His did quite well, mine didn't (I have one tiny squash not quite fit for much of anything) He said I could have one of his to make the butternut squash soup.

What's left in your garden?

We are doing the same this week... collecting herbs and drying them, and pressing and drying blossoms as well for crafting. Congrats on a great harvest!

Did some harvesting this weekend...we keep our garden under a row cover so I had beans, carrots, endive, scallions, sweet potatoes and tomatoes. Herbs frozen or brought in to go under the grow light. Green chiles and other hot peppers still going without the cover. Arugula, peas and tomatoes still under cover and I hope to keep going through this weekend.
