Happy Thanksgiving to All Who Celebrate!
Harvested some leeks, scallions & herbs. They will be included in our Thanksgiving feast.
Leeks, Scallions & Herbs from the garden
The leeks are skinnier than I expected (were planted a bit too close together) but will still be delicious. The white parts will be used and the green parts placed in freezer bags for making broth at a later date.
Scallions did very well this year and are still growing strong. Last year I direct sowed and the seeds did not germinate at all or maybe they did, and critters ate the seedlings. This year I started the seeds in cell packs and transplanted when they were a few inches tall, very successful. Will do the same next year.
Left to right: Parsley, Sage, Rosemary & Thyme
I was surprised the parsley and rosemary survived the killer frosts and frigid nighttime temperatures we had. Wondering how much longer they will remain in good condition.
The sage and thyme are perennial. They are growing in a protected area in the back of the house and I can harvest throughout the winter as long as they are not buried under snow.
If you are celebrating, have a wonderful time with family and friends around the Thanksgiving table.
