Beginning of the End and Family of 4 Harvest Report

While some years we might keep things going longer, due to the renovation we are tearing out most plants sooner than some years. Today we hacked the grapevines to bits, pulled and distributed all the herbs, and started tearing out the flowers. Next week the tomatoes and peppers will be pulled, ready or not!

We had some very healthy parsley that will be great for cooking. We pulled all the annual herbs and harvested what we wanted for culinary use. The perennials all got potted up and distributed to new homes.

All except for the garlic chives, that is. After all, you only need so many garlic chives. If you are desperate, there are a whole bunch in the compost bin, and I’m sure they’ll still be in fine condition.

We also had a nice haul of tomatoes from the ‘Golden Rave’ Roma plant in the Family of 4 Garden. Combined with a modest harvest of peppers this week, several small cantaloupes, and all the herbs, we had a decent selection of veggies this week.
