Harvest Monday 12.19.11

With so much going on right now, it's hard to believe I haven't posted since last weeks harvest!
We've gone to parties, and thrown our own. We've baked cookies, and eaten quite a few as well. We've shopped and decorated, and gone for walks. We've watched it 'SNOW' in Florida, and we saw Christmas trees dance to music as well. This week has been active to say the least!

The harvest came, but the camera was shy. The nights were busy so the seat of our pants, we did fly -
(Ever get the feeling you've told the Christmas story one too many times?)

Anyway here are the few pictures I DID get of our harvests this week!

There were probably a half dozen tomatoes. but the counter isn't full. Oh no! We had lettuce and radishes and peas and a few green onions to make a nice complete salad for a change! This doesn't happen often here so we are taking full advantage while we still can!

On Sunday morning we decided to take some of the 55 pounds of meat we just put in the freezer and make one of my favorite treats! MMMMmmmmm...... Biscuits and sausage gravy, with 2 runny eggs right in the middle.
That's the kind of breakfast that means I WONT be fitting into my Holiday gown again any time soon! Guess I'll have to slow down on that.Teehee.

Well, Linking in with Daphne's Dandelions for our weekly Harvest Monday PARTY! This week addition is sure to be full of Christmas and other assorted Holiday Cheer!
I hope that you are staying warm and cozy with your loved ones. See you soon!

'Till next time!


  1. Nice to have such lovely harvests this time of year! Most of our stuff is coming out of the cellar now but we have much less snow than usual. Have a great holiday!

  2. Tomatoes and all the other fixings for a fresh from the garden salad, I will have to wait until next year. Your harvest is mouth watering delicious.

  3. Wow! What a good looking picture of you two that is. :D

    Our lettuce harvests have been minimal lately as the slugs have been working on the main patch and the other ones are quite young yet. Salads are made with other greens at the moment, but hopefully we will be back enjoying some beautiful lettuce like yours soon.

  4. You look gorgeous! That nice radish harvest. I never can grow globe radish well here.
