Harvest Monday 12/26/11

The final casualty in our attempt at a late season crop was cabbage. We harvested 21 heads, for an amazing, outstanding, incredible total of 3 spectacular pounds! We also harvested 5 ounces of broccoli shoots and pulled the plants.  We picked a little cilantro that keeps holding on despite freezing temps and took 4 ounces of red leaf lettuce and 5 ounces of sprouts from the cold frame.

  1. great cabbage harvest.everything looks great

  2. Looks like you had a pretty good harvest of cabbage and brocolli :o) I'm having company tomorrow, but the next day I need to get my brocolli and cabbage up and take a look at my Rutabaga..just been busy with Holiday.

  3. That is pretty amazing that you can push the growing season until the end of December.

  4. I'm so jealous of that broccoli--I'd love to steal that!

  5. Although the cabbage is small, it's a great December harvest for sure!

    I really need to get out there and do some harvesting from the cold frames.

  6. Cabbage is tasty - big or small! The broccoli side shoots are wonderful. Our broccoli is long done for the season and I am missing it tremendously.

  7. Mrs. Pickles, thanks, it's been a learning experience.

    Ginny, be sure to post about your cabbage and broccoli. I would really enjoy reading about that harvest.

    Grafixmuse, hoop houses would make all the difference I think.

    Sue, We cherished every tiny shoot!

    Robin, thanks, we'll see what next year brings!

    KitsapFG, The cabbage and broccoli was very tasty. I was sad to finally pull it up. Now we only have garlic, some carrots and a couple of leeks left in the ground for the rest of the year.

  8. Wonderful harvest! Your cabbage may have had some itty bitty heads, but the rest look fantastic! Congrats!

  9. Thanks Bee Girl. We'll get a couple of meals out of it at least.
