Harvest Monday 11/15-11/21 2011

Little green pumpkin
We did not harvest much this week. I finally pulled this pumpkin and we are hoping it will still ripen up in the window sill. We of course had more salads this week, a mix of chard, kale, red romaine and deertongue lettuce. I forgot to mention last week that we harvested some tomatoes...they will be the last of this year because we finally pulled down the last 20 tomato plants this week. Pretty amazing to still have tomatoes in Nov. Our girls are giving us 4 eggs a day almost every day and on Saturday, my favorite girl South layed two eggs in one day. We are really looking forward to this coming week...Thanksgivings on Thursday! We had family in town this past weekend and family coming on Wednesday. I love the holidays!

We are linking us with Daphne's dandelions for harvest Monday! Have a great holiday week(end)!

Our peas are starting to get flowers...maybe to late?

I hope the pumpkin was mature enough so it will ripen for you off the vine. All of my pumpkins had to be finished off the vine this year but they were already turning color when I pulled them in. Congratulations on the good egg production and Happy Thanksgiving!

Even if it doesn't ripen your hens will probably like to eat the pumpkin. If you have some row cover you can make a tent over your pea vines so they are damaged too badly with cold weather. The plants are pretty immune to freezing but it will damage the blooms and pods
