Harvest Monday 1/10-1/16 2012

 This we harvested some sage, salad greens and kale. We also picked up some kale at the market to make kale chips , a yummy treat this weekend. So far we have really enjoyed our first fall/winter garden but we are looking forward to spring/summer.


Here is the first list from the Chico Certified Farmer's Market: Saturday January 14th 2012

Herbs- dill, cilantro, parsley, rosemary, sage, thyme, and lemongrass.

Fruit- grapefruits, many varieties of apples, pommelos, hachiya persimmons, oranges, kiwi, mandarins, lemons, Mexican limes, and Palestine limes.

Greens- red Russian kale, dinosaur kale, curly kale, bok choy, arugula, mustard greens, collard greens, many different types of lettuce, tatsoi, swiss chard and spinach.

Root veggies- carrots, beets, turnips, daikon, radish, sweet potatoes, and many types of potatoes.

Others- Butternut squash, acorn squash, many types of winter squashes, red cabbage, regular cabbage, napa cabbage, broccoli, romanesco cauliflower, celery, onions, sweet onions, garlic, green onion, leeks, mushrooms, sunchokes, avocado, kohlrabi, sugar cane, thai peppers, and chayote.

Pretty much the same as last week with the addition of rosemary, sage, thyme, pommelos, kohlrabi, sugar cane, thai peppers and the flowers are back!

We spoke with the man selling sugar cane about getting starts so we could grow our own and he was excited and helpful...he invited us to his farm, gave us directions and told us that in spring time he would bring us cuttings.

Happy Harvest Monday, we are linking up with Daphne's Dandelions...so go check out with others are harvesting around the world.

Kale chips how interesting. Do you just toss them in hot oil? Very exciting I am sure to be able to grow sugar cane. I love different things but think that might be a bit of a challenge in my area.

Great harvest guys. I'm really jealous of your farmers market. The farmers markets in our area just shut down from November to June, so if we want something fresh we have to grow it ourselves.

I've never tried kale chips before. Now I am curious! :) I'll have to check them out. Thanks.
