Harvest time

The end of a wonderful season.The harvest is done ,except for the wonderful hardy Kale which will feed us for a long time yet.


I have not yet discovered how to organically combat the worms in my apples.They look gorgeous, but usually only a small part of the apple is worm free.




we have been eating lots of crumble

just so pretty!!




the best crop this year were the variety of beans.






Every year I collect blossoms and leaves to make my own tea blend.



love the Basil. It grew quite nicely this year



Only two Kohlrabi :(  the broccoli, Brussel sprout, Kohlrabi Zucchini and Squash were a disaster.Only 2 Kohlrabi


The Brandiwine is my favorite Heritage tomato




I hade enough to make a few bottles of Salsa.




I love the Elderberry. I freeze them and they join Blueberries Raspberries and ground cherry on my porridge.



The blueberries were nice this year as well.




Corn was a disappointment.It looks lovely and surprisingly had no worms.No wonder!! It was not sweet, though I bough the sweet corn seeds.



Perpetual Spinach. What a gem!!It is still growing and making lovely Smoothies.



 The grapes were plentiful

 


made 15 bottles of lovely grape juice.


we had some med. size beets with lovely tops


the raspberries are my favorite.

 

these are Fall Raspberries , so nice to have this time of year.


Since we have 2 dogs we don't have Squirrels  ,hence: we have pears this year.






Just a very few peppers



and this is the last harvest



ending this wonderful harvest and being very grateful for it with a bouquet of Calendula.



There is more to come. The next blog is right around the corner.

Oh, Renate! everything looks lovely even though not everything was edible. You made so few jars of salsa...and gave me one of them! I feel so special.

There are fall raspberries? You must tell me more about that...
