Harvest Monday 12/05/11

It's been a while since we posted anything for Harvest Monday at Daphne's. If you don't know about Harvest Monday be sure to stop by her sight and see what other gardeners are harvesting this time of year. Happy Holidays!

Here at Spring Garden we harvested 6 oz of leeks and 3.5 pounds of carrots. We still have leeks and carrots in the ground. I'm not sure we'll harvest before the ground freezes.


Our fall garden from the hillside behind the house.

  3. Those carrots look so good!! I don't know anything about gardening - so, if you leave the ones in the ground that you didn't harvest through the freezing months, will they survive?

  4. Hi Marianne, that's what we're hoping! We've read that the carrots will survive, but we've never tried it ourselves. I'm thinking we'll see, but who knows, maybe they're big, and we can pull them before the hard freeze.

  8. KitsapFG, even though we planted them several months late, the leeks were definitely ready to be harvested.

    Norma Chang, thanks. This was our first year with carrots and we're glad we raised them.

    Wilderness thank you. You will not regret planting leeks. They are very easy to grow and delicious! This was our first time and we don't regret it.

    MK girl, thanks. Some of them could not be saved, but we were able to keep plenty.

  12. Thanks GrafixMuse. Hefty is good, because we're hoping to reach 1,000 pounds by the end of the month. It's not likely though.

  13. Sturdy looking harvest, and nice to see what your beds look like! We're also experimenting with leaving things in the ground to see how they fare through the winter. Some have gone into the root cellar, but we've carrots, leeks, parsnips and celeriac in covered beds.
