Harvest Monday 27 October 2014




There is not much left in the garden except some hardy greens and a few broccoli sprouts. I am still cleaning up the beds and getting them ready for winter. I planted the garlic last week since we were looking at a series of rainy days and I wanted them in before the deluge. Not much rain actually happened and we are having an amazingly mild fall. Weather this week is supposed to be mostly sunny with temperatures ranging 50- 60s °F/10-15 °C.




I spent a cloudy and blustery Sunday afternoon at Nashoba Valley Winery for their Oktoberfest/Blue Grass Festival. The band was Southern Rail and they are very good. It was a sell-out crowd but luckily I got there early enough for a good seat. And fortunately the crowds left me a clear path back to the beer tent and the pulled pork booth. Besides the winery, Nashoba Valley also runs a microbrewery and a distillery, so there was plenty of spirits of every kind and I tried several of their microbrews.


That is all from my garden. To see what other gardeners around the world are doing in their gardens, head over to Daphne’s Dandelions, our host for Harvest Monday.


  1. Well, getting greens and broccoli is good! Glad you had fun at the festival--though it looks like everyone was bundled up for winter.

  2. I too am cleaning up and putting the gardens to bed for the winter. Sounds like a great festival.

  3. All green for me this week too - but in another month or so, anything fresh and green will be a sight for sore eyes and we will be craving the first green of spring, won't we ;) Glad you had a good time at the festival - pulled pork...yum!

  4. We got a couple of inches while I was gone. And I went out and picked broccoli too, which was nice.
