Fall Harvest in the Garden

I planted these Zinnias from seed under grow lights then transplanted them into pots in October.
We were able to enjoy the blooms for about a month before freezing temperatures were threatening, and I cut the stems for an indoor bouquet.

I should be able to harvest Swiss chard all winter. I cut the larger leaves, and come back and cut again as I need to. I made some Low Carb Lasagne out of this bunch of chard. Delicious!

Grape tomatoes were also harvested and enjoyed before I pulled up the plants a couple of weeks ago. Can't wait to plant some peas or other cold weather crops to enjoy in early spring!

Fall Harvest of Soft Shell Almonds

Soft Shell almonds
I was able to pick a small harvest of almonds from my dwarf almond tree on Saturday! It was fun to show my granddaughter how to break them open and eat them. She loved eating them, too! I was also able to pick some of the pomegranates from the bushes in the yard. Will get some pictures and put in another post.
