Harvest Monday 09/06/2012

This past week I started getting a few more fruit and veggies coming in. I now have to start sitting down and making a list of what needs to get canned, freeze or eaten fresh before I just end up freezing everything and forgetting to enjoy it fresh from the garden!

I am linking up with Harvest Monday’s hosted by Daphne’sDandelions!

  1. Are you going to make saurkraut?

  2. David- That is the plan, but I think I planted way too much cabbage...LOL

  3. Sour cherries, delicious! Oh, and cabbage too. I love to add dried sour cherries to sauteed cabbage, with perhaps some shredded duck confit, that 's a favorite combination around here. Lovely harvests.

  4. Didn't realize you were so far north. You have even more of a challenge than Wilderness (Growing & Cooking) does in the Adirondacks. I bet those cherries were good. No pies made with them?

  5. Quite 25 lbs for the week - that's a lot in my book. I'll be happy if I get to even 1/4 of that amount this year.

  6. Your harvest looks fabulous. I'm eating cabbage this week, but it was picked back in late June or early July. I love that it keeps so well.

  7. Those cherries still look great. Currently figuring out how to steal them :)
    Loving watching your harvest coming in. If feeling ever so slightly jealous :)
    Oh, and btw, August is the 8th month, not the 9th ;)

  8. Oh wow... those cherries are wonderful! So nice harvest you have got.

  9. Orchidea- Thank you

    Rowena- I was pretty happy to finally be getting a "large" harvest!

    Marcia-Yep all the way up in Canada. Its a shorter growing season in Saskatchewan, but we still get a lot! No pies....but I can always make some later :)

    Michelle- Thank you. i have never had cherries and cabbage together sounds pretty yummy with duck!
