Last Harvest of the Season

We had a freezing evening last week and I forgot to harvest everything in my garden. However, it wasn't that bad because my peppers are still fine, along with the lemon grass and ginger.

This was the rest of the lemon grass, washed, cut, and straight to the freezer.

Here are the live lemon grass and ginger. Ready to be brought inside the house.

Their new home is right next to my desk in our classroom. That's all the sun they get. Hopefully they can survive until spring.

I left the parsley, lavender, hyssop, and peppermint in the garden. I'm hoping to see them growing in the spring. Last year I brought them inside, but they wither and I had to buy more to plant. We got so much leaves outside, when it gets a little warmer I will gather some and cover those plants I left to keep them warmer.

Utilizing Our Yard Harvest 2015

These are some of my harvest from July to October. I forget to take a pictures sometimes. So, it;s not all here.

I freeze all the left over.

I gave most to the lady who gave my MIL a bath twice a week.

I made cream corn from these.

I even freeze chopped tomatoes, even if they look not very appetizing. I just cut off the bad part and the freezer they go. The big tomatoes you can see here are left on the ground from last year and grew unexpectedly. I'm glad they did because grape tomatoes did not taste very "tomatoey" for me when cooked. Adding other type of tomatoes tasted better.

 And yes, my freezer is stuffed with fresh vegetables. I will be eating them through the winter.

I had plenty of eggplants, broccoli, and okra. And everyday I have cooked fresh vegetables.

7/1/2015 Update of My Garden

Hyssop, give me reason not to plant this? DH is suffering from mucus and congestion at night. I will sure try making tea tonight for him.

Indian/flint corn. Hopefully I can eat some this year. I can't wait.

Broccoli, I'm hoping to finally harvest some this year.

Loving my spinach that took forever to grow, but look at them now.

The same goes to my sweet basil. I thought I will be looking at them with a magnifying glass all year.

Onions, I put onions on everything, hahaha. I bought a $0.50 worth of onions. Hopefully they flowers and drop on the ground for an early start next year. I planted them in-between everything. Where-ever there's a space.
