Final Harvest?

Last week we got our first hard frost. In preparation for it we picked as much as we could from the garden. 


We harvested all the green beans, green peppers, eggplant, and basil. 


We then proceeded to eat green beans every day for a week, and slice and freeze the peppers. 


This is the latest we've ever had these crops, which means the second plantings really paid off. There's still more in the garden that can tolerate colder temps and some frosts. We'll be eating from the garden for a few more weeks at least.

  1. Hi, MOlly, I"m a friend of your mom's. It was fun to see photos of her and your Dad during the wood cutting week! How do you freeze the peppers? Do you cook them first? Karen Schiller

    Good move to get that harvest in--snow is on its way!
