When did you plant seeds/seedlings? Since my cabbages are doing great, I would like to try BS again.

Good grief Camprn, those are humongous.  I finally have a few sprouts appearing but the plants are only about 1 foot tall.

Actually they got rather tall but the sprouts, I wish they were bigger.

Psst, Yolos,  give 'em a light sprinkle of dried blood around the shallow roots. Also, clip off the leaves all along the stalk but leave a good 6 inches of leaves on the plant near the top of the stalk. In your neck of the woods they will certainly keep growing until the spring.

I put the seedlings in last April. They are incredibly long growing and hardy.

Marc,

As some of us (including you!) are aware, BS stands for Brussels sprouts.  Fortunately, I can't stand the things--although I did find an interesting recipe I might one day try.

Just finished a pasta dish with roasted butternut squash, roasted BS, sautéed kale with garlic and pasta. Excellent. The picture is not what I am eating from our garden but what our family will be getting tomorrow ( Christmas) from our garden: plum jam, cardamom plum jam, peach jam, peach chutney, strawberry/ rhubarb chutney, curry pickles, honey bread and butter pickles.

After a large Christmas day lunch ' 13.00 hrs of roast turkey , sprouts, carrots, pigs in blankets ,  roast spud, roast parsnips ,  sage & onion stuffing balls we didn't bother with any thing big for the evening meal at 19.00 hrs as we were still well nourished from earlier on.

 So we had a cheese board with seven different cheeses , sweet pickled silverskin onions and some of my Oct 2013 home made tomato sweet pickle chutney & plenty of Carrs water biscuits & other cheese / table type biscuits. 

Boy oh boy has that pickle chutney improved ..it's been kept in the fridge ,,,open for over seven months , but has now got a real smooth quality about it .. I hope the other two jars are still OK and even better by Christmas 2015 .

 The next batch of this pickle will be put into 0.125 of a litre Weck jars as the current one pint jars of it ( all I had at the time ) are far too big a quantity for our family .

I was able to give my son turnips, red romaine lettuce, rosemary, flat-leaf parsley and cilantro.

I have missed this forum

Post  kauairosina on 12/25/2014, 7:47 pm

Been too occupied with garden and life but here is what we have harvested recently.

Lots of kale, emirite filet beans, lots of lettuce, arugula, radishes, collards, some carrots, papaya, herbs, like parsley, thyme and cilantro.  Our sweet basil will only grow in aquaponics otherwise gets some kind of mildew stuff on it.  Seems that it is true all over the island as you never see basil at the sunshine market. 

We have broccoli and beets growing as well as new pepper plants, mostly anchos and bells.  Also some dill.  

Our tomatoes were nothing to brag about. Just a few so-so ones from each plant.

We have some beautiful zucchini plants growing but they are showing signs of a mildew like substance.  We have not had much success with summer squash.

Our gardening team is going to get together to order new seeds. We want cabbages and such for fermentation, a new endeavor for our family.

We are making new beds because we have run out of room for everything we want to plant.

I look forward to checking in more often and if my grandson ever gets a spare moment I hope he can help me learn to post pictures.

We are have had an unusual meal for today's lunch ..home made pasta ( our first attempt at tortellini  ) .
We have filled it with fine minced/blended bacon, turkey ,ham & some grated Parmesan cheese.

The thick accompanying sauce was made from the last of our stored garden onions,  turkey stock and a home made mild curry .

 OK our  first time for pasta ..Verdict ...We can & will do better , especially if Alison decides to read & remember to use the methods shown in the pasta making book Santa brought her for Christmas Laughing .

 The curry sauce using 1/4 pint of Turkey stock was heavenly , we've never had that before .
Sadly we can only make another three batches before it is consumed . Sad

On the bright side ..... If we can buy a cheap turkey between now & Easter I think we will be doing it again.
