I took all the kale. Some of this I intentionally planted, others were what was left from the salad mixes I planted in spring.
I took all the chard. This, too, was from the salad mixes.
I harvested herbs for drying. Below is parsley, sage, oregano, and thyme. Not quite like the song lyrics! We do have rosemary, but we overwinter the plant and thus have a constant fresh supply.
I also took the remaining cilantro.
It looks like a lot, but it all went into one dish: Cilantro and Serrano Pepper Mexican Rice. The article containing the recipe has a lot of hype to scroll through, and I think it calls for too much garlic, but it turned out quite good. Here it is, served with baked boneless chicken breast dusted with our smoked chile powder. A double dose of spiciness!
I also picked some carrots. They're funny looking, but really tasty.
That's all for this week. Thanks for reading, and thanks as always to Dave at HappyAcres.blog for hosting Harvest Monday.
With hard frost on the way, it will be a busy week getting ready for winter and doing the final harvests of the year.
Oh man, that rice and chicken dish sounds right up my alley! I hear what you say about organic apples. We had a couple of trees here when we bought the place, and I tried to do it without spraying. The fruit quality left a bit to be desired. It didn't help that the tree that did the best was Red Delicious, which is not my favorite apple.ReplyDelete
Enjoyed reading about the winding down of the vegetable garden. All your greens look gorgeous.ReplyDelete
Our carrots are funny shapes too but much tastier than the shop bought 'perfect' specimensReplyDelete
How do you overwinter your rosemary?ReplyDelete
