Harvest Nov 5

Not much going on in the garden these days. The hoop house that was damaged in the small garden was repaired, and the one in the new garden also in place now. There are few peppers growing but I didn't need them this week so did not pick any. Today's harvest is greens - swiss chard, kale and parsley. A handful of beans that I used for my side dish was picked as well but not weighted.
Next few days will be in low 20's so not sure how my hoop house will protect them - will find out the hard way after hard freeze is over. I also planted a bed of garlic that is about 2" tall now so had to pile mulched leafs on top of it to protect it. Hope it will be ok as it has to make it through winter.

  1. We're also expecting a couple of below-freezing nights here. I'm concerned about my hoop house, too. Hopefully the sun will come out to get the inside temperature go up a bit.

  2. Good luck with the freeze! I don't have any hoop houses, but put some cover over the carrots and hope they get through. Kale should be OK. Your greens look very healthy and yummmy!

  5. I hope your hoop house protection does the trick for you. Seems like all of us were planting our garlic this past week or so!

    1. It was 19 at the lowest point, and at 7:30a it was 24 degrees. I mulched my garlic but the heavy wind scoured it clean so some of the green shoots got frozen.
