Garden Harvests - November 27th

Please visit and like my new facebook page Georgia Home Garden.

The garden is all but gone, I have some lettuce and spinach growing but that is it. The holiday season is in full swing, so that is taking priority right now. I harvested a small batch of lettuce this week. It tasted great, and I should have plenty of lettuce to give away. I have about 12 heads growing now. I also had a batch of paper bag ripened tomatoes from my garden. I tried to make salsa, but it did not come out that good. The tomatoes were red on the outside, but were not a deep red on the inside. They were more like an orange-yellowish color. I don't know if this was why my salsa didn't taste right, but something was definitely off. I have been off the entire week of Thanksgiving, so it is back to work tomorrow.

Half pound of lettuce.

Nice batch of tomatoes

Thanks for stopping by, it is always so hard to leave your first house. Especially when you know every single place in it.
The soil I have here was worth the move. We had clay that we poured mulch into like crazy and then to move we now have river bottom, drain able soil. It was the one thing I knew was the best. We do enjoy our gardens and our trees. My husband is growing trees for Bonsai.
Yes, that Ginkgo was next to my Sugar Maple that died. This place I live on was an old truck farm and in the fifty's they just buried trash. I am afraid a old tank may be under there.
So thank you for your comments.
Your tomatoes are exceptional!!
So is your lettuce.
Sorry this is so long.
I love your saying at the top of your page by Francis Bacon. It is in the garden I feel with my husband most complete.
Thank you,

Wish I was near for a head of that lettuce :o) You can always make a nice sauce out of those tomatoes so don't fret, it's still a meal..

Farm Girl - Your property is amazing looking, you are truly blessed. Thanks for the comments and for stopping by.

Ginny - I might try to make some tomato sauce. I have never made sauce so I will have to do some research. I read on GrafixMuse blog about using a food strainer when making sauce so I probably need to invest in one of those. If you have a good tomato sauce recipe you would like to share, I am all ears.

great looking lettuce and tomatoes.
I hope my square foot garden produces well. I am down south of you so gardening is still in full swing.
When I returned from our trip to the mountains though I discovered that my cucumbers were dead--some type of tiny fly???
Peace and Raw Helath,

Elizabeth, thanks for stopping by, and visiting my blog. Wow you must be pretty far south to still be growing cucumbers in December. Nice blog, but seriously...banana trees?!? Do you know how jealous I am of those bananas? You are so lucky to be able to grow them. Your fall sfg looks nice and organized. Good luck to you.
