Today was Harvest Day at Our House (Nov. 12 2014)


A boxful of carrots, parsnips, beets and a random potato :)

 Ada helping me pack the carrots

First we filled a couple boxes with loose, cheap sawdust.

Then we "planted" the carrots in it, and watered until damp.

We did this now, on Nov. 12, because the ground is going to start freezing this week, so it was time to either dig the carrots or cover them. Because I am doing a major garden renovation this fall, I needed to move the carrots out of the garden instead of covering them. Theses boxes have now been moved to shelves in the garage, where we can pop down and "shop" as needed all winter :) 

Also in our garage "store" is a wheel barrel full of pumpkins and squash.

And a huge bag full of onions from the garden. So we should have good eating all winter, until it is time to start harvesting the greenhouse carrots, beets, and onions in springtime, as well as the springtime outdoor perennial onions. You can see all our vegetable varieties at Happy winter!

  1. I'm curious what you mean by "Major garden renovations".
