This past week I have started to harvest some of the fall crops I planted during the late summer. Time is ticking until the killing frosts that come mid way through Nov so I better get cooking. I am going to start harvesting all the unprotected veggies first so that means lettuce, carrots, beets, radishes, chard & tatsoi so keep an eye out for them in up coming Harvest Monday's.
I have picked a good amount of Red Celery during the last seven days. Instead of harvesting the whole plant I have just been pulling what I need from the plant, seems to work well. The celery above when into some beef stock I made, the stock also had my onions and garlic in it.
This red celery went into beef stew that was made with the beef stock I was just blogging about above. Sorry no photo of the stew, it was made with beef, my onions, my potatoes, my celery, my garlic, mushrooms, homemade stock, barley, bay leaves and S&P.
Here is the salad I harvested for Sunday's dinner. The colander contains, Merlot lettuce, Australian Yellowleaf lettuce, mizuna, atomic red carrots (not very atomic red!) and a mix of Easter Egg radishes.
Lastly here is Sundays dinner. For the salad I just grated the carrots & radish over the mixed greens. The burger is a whole other story, I was watching Triple D and saw this burger so I had to give it a try. It is a beef burger with grilled kielbasa topped with lots of cheese, tomato, lettuce and mayonnaise. It was spectacular!
