Break in harvests

No more harvest post for a while. Last snow storm damaged my main hoophouse and before we were able to fix it cold air killed off all my peppers and beans. I still have some salads and carrots growing, some kale and swiss chard that are also being picked but for now I won't post any  pictures of these harvests. The smaller hoop house in the old garden is still standing and transplants of broccoli, cauliflower and cabbages are doing pretty well but not producing yet. We're also using hydroponic greens for salads and sandwiches but I keep forgetting to record these pickings. I'm really starting to miss warmer season where I had all those cucumbers and tomatoes at my fingers. This week I will start two cherry tomato seedlings to see if I can get them to grow inside during winter. So far there is a long pot wit 3 bell peppers in the kitchen so we'll see how that will work out.

  1. Jenny - you have so many stored up from all summer to enjoy. Lucky you for that. Sorry to hear about the collapse of the hoop house.

    1. I do have a lot of frozen veggies and canned sauces but it's no where near what the fresh would taste like. I'm grateful that I was able to save what I have for winter so my hubby can enjoy his meals but most of my meals are fresh raw veggies and I miss them.

  2. You deserve a break...I would rest until January. You have had a great 2012 garden.

    1. Thank you, I do intend to rest for most of the time, there's plenty of other work to be done around here. Hope your new home coming along nicely.

  3. Sorry that you lost your peppers and beans. I think we will all be glad when warm weather comes again next year! At least your hubby will still be eating canned things from your garden. Nancy
