Harvesting in November – video

This week I am planning to do a new installment for the ‘A week of eating from the garden‘ series where I record what we harvest at a particular point in time and how I use the fruits and vegetables in the kitchen. There are times when I have to use all my ingenuity to stretch the harvest to last us all week but at the moment we are enjoying a splendid abundance. As you can see in the video, we are still harvesting a huge variety of vegetables. Because our new garden is so much bigger than the previous one, we were able to add more raised beds and grow more vegetables than ever before. We also inherited a huge ‘Conference’ pear which has fruited so abundantly, I am somewhat stressed about processing the harvest.

And apart from that, we have sweet potatoes and lots of winter squash stored away and there are apples and quinces in our cellar, too. We have walnuts from the garden of our friends and sweet chestnuts we foraged in the forest.


I am thankful for all this beautiful organic produce and looking forward to cooking with it this week.

What would you make with these vegetables?

    Hi Vera! I really really loved the video, because we get an even closer view on how it all comes together: right down from the soil up to the plate. It’s definitely a priviledge to be able to actually eat from the garden. 🙂

    Wonderful looking harvest! We are down to carrots, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, leeks and a few scallions. Oh, and TONS of parsley. If it would be less stressful to just send your pears to me I would gladly take them. 🙂

      Thank you, Mark! I would gladly bring you a bucket of pears if we lived closer to each other 🙂
