Last Harvest of 2014

last harvest2

Yesterday was the official closing of our 2014 vegetable garden.  This is the latest that I can ever remember harvesting.  We have had some cold days here and there and a few inches of snow on and off but the cold weather vegetables (brussel sprouts, cabbage, broccoli), have continued to grow and ripen.  We are due for some snow and the sun is not making many appearances so I finally gave in and pulled the last of the “goods”.

I had 6 brussel sprout plants full of baby size brussel sprouts which is exactly how we like them!  The greens have all been washed and are stored to feed the bunnies, goats and chickens over the next few weeks.

The last broccoli bunch is blanched and frozen and the cabbage is stored with the potatoes in the back door of the cellar to keep it cold and fresh.

It seems like just yesterday I was sharing with you how we prepared the garden this spring…Preparing the Gardens
