Once again Monday Harvest and Other Things


Welcome once again to Harvest Monday!  I keep thinking that I will not get any more veggies to harvest but picked these last Sunday!


I cut some chives up and put them on a pan to dry.  I have never done this before but I think they turned out well!


I also potted up a few chives and brought into the house to try to overwinter.  I have never done this before either!  I still have a few left outside which I can cut until the weather gets cold and the snow flies and I am too lazy to go outdoors!


Last Monday I pulled a few more carrots, one teeny tomato, dill and a Pak Choy leaf not pictured.


Also a bowl of raspberries were picked last Monday.  Yum!  They taste so good in the mornings on our cereal!  Will miss them!


This was Tuesdays!  I had to ask you wonderful gardeners what kind of beans these were as had not planted them.  Well, I guess they must have been mixed in with some other seed so I did plant them!  I learned they are Italian Flat beans.  I also tried to harvest a few zinnia seeds!


Got quite a bit on Wednesday.  The tomato was funny shaped and my fall redish harvest is pathetic!  Picked a few more Italian flat beans and yellow beans and cut some Bee Balm to dry to flavor my tea this winter.


We took the plunge and bought some apples.  Don't know if that was wise or not as don't know when we will be able to get the applesauce made and some dried in the dehydrator.  The price was enough to give one a heart attack!!!!!


Pulled more carrots on Thursday and the last zuchini.  We have pulled out our cucumber vines and a Patty Pan squash vine.  The Patty Pan did not do well at all for me this year.  Sue picked a few more raspberries on Friday!



Saturday and Sunday and more veggies!  I am so surprised that I am still getting a few things but thankful for them!  Not as many raspberries tho.


I had an angiogram on Friday.  They did it through an artery in my wrist so had to keep it elevated above my heart for awhile.  Still don't know what is wrong with me! I have had seven or eight ocular migraines since then so have been pretty wiped out and have not been able to comment on all my gardener friend blogs!  This is my "brown pill" giving me lots of sympathy!  Have a great harvest day!

I do hope you feel better soon, Nancy!! Your harvests are admirable too...I leave my chives in the ground and they come back every year, but my neighbor says hers don't. hmmm...

Prayers and blessings...I'm heading out back to the gardens again!

Nancy, I hope you are better soon! Will definitely keep you in my prayers. I think your harvest is still looking very nice! Especially those raspberries and wax beans. Stay well!

Shawn Ann said...

Hope your chives winter inside well for you! I do not get enough sun to overwinter anything, just the way my house sits!
Looks like you did quite well. Very nice looking raspberries. I will be sad when they are done too, and it looks like it is pretty close. I only got a few today! boo!
Hope you feel better! Stinks to not feel good and want to get out to the garden! Hope they figure out the problem for you.

Hi Akannie, I hope also that they find out what is wrong with me soon and make be better! My chives come back every year here in Northern IN but I don't like to tramp out in the snow to get them! Thought I would try this. Hope you were able to get lots accomplished today. Thanks for your prayers! Come again. Nancy

Nancy, I hope that you will feel better soon and that the doctors will know what is going on. I will be praying for you all.

We went and picked Jonagold apples today. They are not all the best quality (some with worms), but we are making most into cider. I think we ended up picking about 4 bushels and paid $40 for them all. I can only imagine what the price is for nice apples.

Have a wonderful evening.

I was celebrating your beautiful harvests, then read about your migraine problems. I'm so sorry! I pray you will find what is causing the problem and be back as fit as a fiddle real soon. In the meantime, do rest and take care of yourself.

I hope you are on the mend soon. With your fur baby to love on you - who could possibly not feel well?!

Your harvests continue to come on nicely and is rewarding your good gardening work with lots of yummy eating. Apples keep a long time in the box if you keep them in a cool place.

Hi Nancy! So sorry to hear about your condition! That's got to be painful in you wrist! And those headaches, yuck! Your harvests have been very nice, though. Our weather is cooler today, only in the fifties! I got cold outside with all that wind! Prayers you'll be back to yourself soon and they will be able to give you a diagnosis! Blessings from Bama!

Hi Nancy~ I'm behind a bit but see that you've been having quite a time. I hope those migraines get diagnosed soon and you will be on the road to recovery. I LOVE your little brown pill! What nice medicine you have there. Thank you for your sweet comments about the passing of my mother. You are kind.
