The vegetables for this Harvest Monday came from the Edible Landscape garden at Dutchess County Farm & Home Center, Rt. 44, Millbrook, NY.
The Edible Landscape is a project of the Dutchess County Master Gardeners where I am a volunteer. To learn more about the Edible Landscape, please visit: http://www.ccedutchess.org/aghort/community-horticulture/190-edible-landscape
The leeks are long and white, about 18″, just gorgeous.
Cut white section into about 3″ lengths. Brown lightly in a butter and olive oil combination, add broth or white wine, cover simmer until tender, enjoy. Cut the green parts into about 4″ lengths, place in freezer bag, date, label and freeze. Add to pot when making broth.
Celeriac also known as celery root. One of my favorite root vegetables. Will write more in a future post.
The delicious French salad Celeriac Remoulade, is shredded celeriac dressed with a mustard mayonnaise. I like to use it in stews and soups or mash with potatoes. Add the leaves and stems to the pot when making broth.
Butternut and Delicata squash.
Eggplants, ping tung on left, lavendor touch on right.
Malabar spinach. I lightly brown chopped onion and garlic in a bit of olive oil, add salt and the malabar spinach leaves, saute until wilted.
Japanese cucumbers, Summer Dance
These are just some of the vegetables grown in the Edible Landscape. There are also herbs, edible flowers and fruits. To learn more, visit the web site above or if you are in the area, visit at different seson so see the changes.

The vegetables look delicious. Great job!
Thanks Betty Roy.
So many interesting variety growing there which the first time I heard. For example like the mohawk capsicum or delicata squash. Nice harvest.
What a great harvest. What a difference a couple of hundred miles makes in the zone for growing things. I think I am less that 200 miles north of you and it is amazing that I still have anything growing.
Yes, the Edible Landscape did and still is producing well.
everything look delicious Norma.
Thanks Kim. Yep, the sauteed malabar spinach was delicious.
The garden is producing a nice abundance of edible treasures. The butternuts are particularly good looking to me, as my plants were too set back by our colder than normal summer and set fruit too late for us to get any to maturity.
Yes, the garden is still producing, but coming to an end. Need to start paying attention to frost warnings.
Lovely veggies but most of all lovely pictures taken:)
Have a lovely week,
What a variable harvest! I love the peanut post. I’ll have one soon, too. I’m in need of thinning the older plants and giving roomt o spread for the younger ones. 🙂 It gives me the excuse to eat some peanuts!
Looking forward to your peanut posts.
