October Harvests

Harvest have slowed down this month as the garden is mostly cleaned up for the year.

I shelled by dry beans and put them in jars.

This basketful is the last of the tomatillos before the frost.

We’re enjoying leeks and greens in a variety of ways.


Some nice sized carrots.

The saffron crocuses are blooming and I’ve harvested a bit of saffron.

    I keep thinking of putting in some saffron. My husband loves saffron rice. When do you plant it?

      Daphne,
      You plant the bulbs in early fall, September or so, and then they sprout in October. They bloom in the fall, and then the greens over winter and grow more leaves in the spring before dying back mid summer.

      I got my bulbs from the Fedco bulb catalog a few years ago.

    wonderful beans. What a nice variety you got this week. So jealous when I see eggs in the weekly harvest 😉
