Mid-November Garden Harvest November 12, 2010

Normally, my mid-November harvest would be vegetables I’ll be eating for dinner, like spinach, and lettuce.  However, I had a party to attend away from home.  When I got home it was dark, but I hadn’t seen the back gardens for a couple days, so I headed out back.  Holy peppers!  It seems really late to have this volume of peppers, but there they were, and there are lots more to mature before picking:

 

Jalapenos, Serranos, and Thai Chiles

 

On the driveway, in an Earthbox is one tomato plant.  It had two tomatoes on it, and a couple just setting fruit.  I picked the first one to start turning, before some evil animal or bird saw it.

 

Only Fall tomato so far

 

My plan is to make a makeshift greenhouse over the Earthbox and see if I can’t coax more of these potential tomatoes to maturity.

Also ready to pick, are 5 or 6 huge Meyer Lemons.  I’ll tackle them tomorrow, when I’m ready to preserve some of them.  I don’t want to waste anything I’ve managed to grow!
