The last of the cooking apples fell from the tree to the ground over the weekend with the heavy rain and gusts of strong winds. Here are some tomatoes from the greenhouse. Its the longest time we have let tomatoes grow on in the greenhouse, often clearing it to sow some winter salad. Do you think that I could still sow winter salad in the greenhouse?
I have used the late tomatoes mostly as pasta sauce.
I got a load of pears this year from the tree. In fact its the first year we have actually had any, so I was busy baking with them.
From this gorgeous Pear Cinnamon Cake to preserving them in some star anise and cinnamon flavoured syrup. Looking forward to enjoying these with warm chocolate brownies and vanilla ice-cream.
I do still have some curly kale and black Tuscan aka dinosaur kale, and maybe some Brussels sprouts to harvest, but after that there will be nothing else, but hardy herbs. So very soon, my participation in Harvest Monday will dwindle until Spring next year. For now, please enjoy this small harvest which I am sharing with Dave who hosts Harvest Monday at his blog Our Happy Acres.
