Being English born and bred I know what marrows are. If anyone watches the British soap Coronation Street, you will know that Deirdre often cooks stuffed marrow, it is one of her signature recipes and always gets a laugh from members of the Corrie Guest Book.

Sungold tomatoes ripening on vines plucked the afternoon before our first hard frost.   They are golden orange, but the flavor is like something you would get from a supermarket.  Most were green when picked...  ah... how big a difference it makes when they are harvested from the live plant!

Today?  Well today I just picked this (literally, a few minutes ago).  It's getting sliced up as I type...the first of many (though I'll harvest the rest on Sunday).

1.6oz - not very long, but pretty fat, and delicious (we had a couple days of cold rain that just stopped yesterday).

Mmmmm! Looks pretty too - we harvested one and my hubby thought it looked somewhat "x" rated, LOL! Strange shaped little guy but he tasted good.

Tonight we had an AJ original dish made with acorn squash, sauteed onions, and a touch of sauteed Swiss Chard (all from our garden), pureed with a little cream cheese and a pinch of allspice, a few pinches of nutmeg, a touch of sugar and some poultry spice, salt and pepper to taste over pasta.

A freshly picked zucchini sauteed with lemon pepper and it's all SO good!

This morning I picked 6 satsuma mandarine oranges and a hand full of green onion tails for the scrambled eggs, our winter greens are just getting big enough to harvest a salad for breakfast, and Our pecans are finishing up.  The bowl of fresh cracked nuts is almost empty and very few wait to be cracked.

There're still more in the ground, but they were smaller, so I figured I'd give them some extra days worth of cool-weather grow time. Smile

Black raspberries from the freezer. It was a wonderful surprise, since I thought they were blueberries, which weren't from my garden.

Greens

Post  NAR56 on 12/9/2014, 2:52 pm

I picked an ice chest full of Mustard greens and Red Swiss Chard this weekend. I had enough to make two batches. I froze one batch for later, while we eat on the other. Sorry not pictures this time.

Our Broccoli is coming along nicely and we should have some within 3 or 4 weeks. This year I staggered planting 4 broccoli plants every 2 weeks, so all the heads don't mature at the same time. Last year I had 12 heads ready at the same time!

We have company today, so this morning I went out and picked a couple huge navel oranges ripe from our tree, and cut them into like 8 wedges that we call orange smilies Smile  Guess ya would call that fresh fruit less than 5 minutes from tree to mouth.  They were so well received I hadda go pick a couple more.

Last night, kale and garlic in a ham/potato soup.  Today, first oranges.  A 30 minute drive away there are apple orchards in the foothills.

Getting ready to get our third harvest from our Mustard Greens and Swiss Chard. We have three Broccoli ready from the first planting. My wife has claimed one head for some homemade Broccoli Cheese soup! The second planting will be ready in a few more weeks. The Napa cabbages are coming along nicely as well. Here are a few picture, enjoy.








Merry Christmas Everyone!

Yummy! Everything looks so fresh and healthy! Can't wait for the oranges to hit the stores. And those radishes are monstrous!

Here I'm still making my daily kale &/or collard smoothies. Still have herbs growing inside, & stored garlic & onions left. But that's about it.

What plants are you growing year round? I have carrots and a lettuce mix going. My Romain keeps growing too, but a rabbit keeps eating it on me.
