This week brought what will most likely be the last harvests of the year. If you’ve read my past few harvest posts, I’m sure you can guess what it was.
Brussels Sprouts! Here’s bowl full from earlier in the week.
Last year we found that the kept for a few weeks on the stem in a humid cool environment. Sprouts left outside in the elements until January did not hold up, turning mushy and brown inside.
So this his weekend while the ground was temporarily thawed, I pulled the remaining 5 plants. We’ll take the sprouts of some of these for holiday meals with family. The other stalks will stay with soil on their roots in the damp basement to be enjoyed next month. However when they are weighed, they’ll get added to our 2011 total.
Harvest this week: 2 lbs 7 oz
Harvest total for 2011: 402 lbs!
Eggs this week: 24
Eggs this year: 249
