The Harvest

Here are what I harvested last week. Some of the carrots are being eaten by something. This ones are much better than last year. DH tilled the soil well this year and my carrots turned out good. I still have 1 or 2 that are oddly shaped. That is what happened when they touch some rocks.

Here are the squash/pumpkins that I was talking about. I know 2 or 3 pieces are acorn squash. I'm not sure what the others are.

And below is what I use some of the carrots above. Sweet and sour fish. I did not have any bell peppers in my garden this year, so, there is no pepper with this recipe. This picture can be also found in my cooking blog. This is it, for the 2010 season. I hope you all have a great winter and free from cold and flu.


My Vegetable Garden is Done

For the season that is. I will never stop planting vegetables. I wanted to plant all the vegetables we eat next season. Buying the veggies in our local farmers market is not safe anymore. Why do they need to compete with commercial farmers. I like my vegetables all natural. It's bad enough I have to buy fish from farm raise, vegetables too? I need a balance here and I will make it balance.

DD was bugging me too much today to pick the pumpkins/squash. Since we are off for a holiday, I tried to harvest everything I can. Saved the seeds of long beans, okra and pak choy. Our friend wanted some seeds and there are plenty to share.

I even removed the fence and put them dry and safe from rust in our garage. My min-van have to share it if I wanted to use them again next year. We are moving the garden where the sun can reach all parts of the garden next year. DH have to till again from a scratch but we both agree that the outcome will be abundance.

I still need to make a mix of garlic powder and some kind of oil if I will plant some lettuce next year. If I don't make it, I bet we will never harvest lettuce to eat. The bugs will be all over them, just like what they are doing with my pak choy, rabe broccoli and other leafy vegetables.

My next post will have the pictures of harvested carrots and pumpkins/squash.
