This is a journal of my small organic urban kitchen garden & large community garden plots. This blog includes home preserving, recipes & a little bit of our life. My husband calls the gardens Eden. He should know he is the cook here! We are located in eastern Pennsylvania in zone 6B.

This week's Harvest Monday post includes the last harvest of 2011 and the first little harvest for 2012.
The Pak Choi in the one cold frame was starting to bolt. So, I pulled all of it. It really turned out to be a great year end harvest!
Not bad for the end of December....31.55 ounces!
As you can see, the bugs are still alive and doing a little nibbling on the veggies. I certainly hope that we get some seasonably cold weather this winter. If not, I am going to have a real bug problem come spring!
The last four carrots from the cold frames were pulled.
The big carrot weighed in at 4 ounces!
There was also some spinach to pick in the spinach bed.
It wasn't a lot. Just enough to put in the bottom of the fish casserole I was making with the left overs from our Christmas Eve feast.
Yesterday we stopped by the plots. I wanted to check on things since I haven't been there for a few weeks. While I was there I harvested a little broccoli crown.
Our first harvest of 2012...weighing in at 2 ounces!
Total weighed Harvests: 2011 - 2.64 lbs., 2012 - 2 oz.
Carrots - 8.7 oz.
Pak Choi - 31.55 oz.
Spinach - 2 oz.
Broccoli - 2 oz.
