Last Harvest Monday 2010

Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving weekend. We spent our Thanksgiving at home, just us. It was nice and a bit relaxing. I still made the traditional Thanksgiving dinner, including Pumpkin Pie. I used the last of my pumpkin from the garden for these two pies, and they didn't last 2 days! Out of the five of us, only the girl does not like pumpkin pie! Crazy! Even the baby LOVED it! I let him have some for breakfast! Ha!
 Well, this is the last Harvest picture of 2010! A good freeze and snow was predicted for Thanksgiving night, which was funny cause we had the windows open all day on Thanksgiving. But, I picked everything I could when we had a break in the rain. The chard has been used already!
Last of the lettuce, Chard, baby spinach a pea and a couple cilantro sprigs.
 The spinach never did get very big, but surely still edible.

Well, it has been a great Harvest year! I'm excited for the next. As for this year though, the garden has ended just in time for my new challenge. The Dark Days Challenge. Hope you will continue to check back and see how I am doing with that.

This weeks harvest:
1 gallon bag lettuce
1 small bunch chard
3 sprigs cilantro
1 pea
1 small bunch spinach
My season may be done, but others are still going strong! Check them out at Daphne's Dandelions!
Happy Harvesting


  1. The pies look yummy. We used one of our pumpkins for the Thanksgiving pies as well, but still have three more in the storage area for later use as well. Nothing beats pumpkin pie made with real pumpkin from the vine as opposed to from the can!

    Good final harvest for the year.

  2. My spinach hasn't gotten big yet either, but I'm going to try to overwinter it in a cold frame. We enjoyed our homegrown pumpkin pie too. It would be hard to go back to pumpkin from a can now!

  3. The pies look absolutely delicious! Canned pumpkin can't touch the flavor of fresh! I have sugar pumpkins in the garden, and now that we've had our first frost, I'll see if they survive to maturity. I don't know if I should pick them or not. There's only a handful of them. We'll see.

    The greens look very nice. The spinach is young, but should be very tender. Great for a salad! Chard always looks so fresh and pretty!

    Thanks for sharing with us!

  4. What a nice "grande finale" with those pumpkin pies! They look fantastic:)

    Take care,

  5. I think that home made pumpkin pie sounds great for breakfast! Your last harvest is very we can all start planning for next year!

  6. I used to make pumpkin pie so my kids could have it as a veggie. My son hates all vegetables but he will eat pumpkin pie. I would make it without the crust and with less sugar and they would still eat it.
