Harvest Monday, November 2018

Welcome to Harvest Monday, where we celebrate all things harvest related. For the background of, and other posts relating to Monday harvests, please visit the Our Happy Acres blog.

Garlic:

Green garlic Nov 2018

It’s getting into the warmest part of the year, and my garlic was still looking spindly. It was one of the last lots planted in late April/May 2018. I decided to harvest so that I could use the bed for spring/summer crops. This is a mix of supermarket garlic and Italian purple.
I then mixed mushroom compost through the garden bed to improve the sandy soil, and planted corn and beetroot.

Strawberry:

Holy shit batman, That’s not a strawberry, this is a strawberry! The cultivar is “Lowanna”, and was just planted in Spring this year. Although the strawberry looks impressive in size, it tastes much like a supermarket strawberry, a little bland in flavour. The centre is hollow. My friend points out that the tip is still white in colour, so perhaps I could’ve waited another day before harvest.

Post Harvest, Oranges:

Photo is from July 2018. Tree does not look like this anymore. But these are my oranges! Six years ago, I transplanted a miserable looking anonymous citrus out from the ground and into a pot. Two years ago I think I got 1 orange. This year, I got a wonderful July harvest.

What have you harvested in the garden this Monday, dear reader?

  1. Too bad the strawberry didn’t have more flavor. And congrats on the orange harvest! Six years is a long time to wait.
