And there should be regular shots of carrots too. I wonder if the cold temperatures sweeten them up also?
The only other harvests last week were a couple of cuttings of Pink Plume celery and a couple big leaves of Tronchuda Beira cabbage. I harvested a number of the largest stalks of celery to keep on hand just in case the freezing temperatures ruined them. I covered the plants with a double layer of frost cloth that I hope will protect them from freezing so perhaps I can get a few more harvests through the winter before the plants bolt in the spring. Also included in the tally are more tomatoes that ripened on the kitchen counter.
Here's the details of the harvests for the past week.
Gustus Brussels sprouts - 14.2 oz.

Harvest Monday is hosted by Dave on his blog Our Happy Acres, head on over there to see what other garden bloggers have been harvesting lately.
If I'm awake at 2:44 AM PST this Wednesday morning I'll celebrate the Winter Solstice in some small way to note the start of lengthening days. Summer is coming! Eventually.... It happens at the exact same time throughout the northern hemisphere but because the earth is divided into 24 different time zones we won't all experience it at the same time of day. Sorry to you in the southern hemisphere - your days are going to become shorter.
