Harvest Monday

I need to pinch myself.  Is it really the end of November and I just ate a fresh salad from my garden?  Or maybe I should kick myself for not planting a fall/winter garden sooner!

This week in the garden I pulled some turnips that I roasted.  The turnip greens are sitting in the fridge awaiting that fabulous recipe that's going to make me love them!

I cut some lettuce for salad- it's a mix of green leaf, romaine and a mesclun mix.  I'm so use to my lettuce getting bitter that I nibble the ends before adding.  Very nice to have bitter free lettuce!  And yes, the strawberries are still producing at the end of November.

I also pulled the first radishes from the fall garden.

I think fall/ winter gardening is now my favorite- no 100 degree weather, 100% humidity, mosquitoes, chiggers, overabundant pests or rampant weeds! 

To see what others are harvesting check out Harvest Monday at Daphne's Dandelions.


  1. The turnips are beautiful and I'm berry envy of your salad greens.

  2. I love fall/winter gardening! Everything grows so much better and costs less for the water bill ;-) Of course we won't have those heat lovers but I can eat big salads every day!

  3. Some things just are destined to never be delicious - perhaps your compost needs those greens more than you do???? Beautiful radishes

  4. Those strawberries look sooooo delicious.
