We are harvesting kale and celery. These are the celery tops in the compost bowl. The bottoms were already in the soup 🙂
Our berries are done. I need to go ahead and prune the raspberries and transplant them. We are having more freezing nights but most of our days are still reaching the 60s. Now, I have to figure out what to cover and with what thickness to cover.
Some of our free pumpkins were rotting in the basement so this week we threw those to the chickens and roasted some of the good ones. (roasted pumpkin, ready to be taken apart, pureed, and frozen)
We are also using our sweet potatoes, probably faster than I would like. They are SOOO good!(Ready to go into the oven. We like sprinkling them with cinnamon. 🙂 )
And the frozen omatoes are being cooked on a steady basis for marinara sauce and soups.
What are you harvesting? Head over to Our Happy Acres to see what others are harvesting these days.
We’ve been using sweet potatoes here too. Too bad about the pumpkins but I guess the chickens are happy!
they were free from a local farm. we’ve already frozen about 50c of pumpkin puree and we still have about 6-7 LARGE pumpkins in the basement so we’re good 🙂
Your sweet potatoes look great. And good thinking about getting pumpkins from the patches after Halloween. Roasted pumpkin seeds, yum.
Those sweet potatoes look so good. Just cooked up my bowlful of sweet potatoes last week…hopefully next year I get to harvest two bowlfuls!
