Harvest for Monday

I don't have much to show for "Harvest Monday" especially since I worked on it yesterday. Nothing appears like magic, there is always work involved that is not seen.
 I'm hoping to get better at this movie taking ...a few points to remember is always necessary when doing it..  


I'm glad that I dried the Thyme, I think it flavors a lot of dishes for the best and hopefully I'l have enough to last until Spring and growing season again.. Next I have some Sage, Basil, and mints to dry...A little at a time gets it done. Hope the video of the Kraut making loads ..it's taking a long time to upload, hope it's good.

Yummy that kraut makes want some right now! I just harvested my first ever cabbage today. Now I am going to have to go back to your post on the 21st and figure out what to do with my leaves.BTW I love your videos!

Mrs. Pickles, good for you having a cabbage harvest.
Some say cabbage is cheap enough not to save,(not any more ) for me it's less gas going to the freezer..than going to the store.
Just blanch them..then cool in cold water drain, bag them up and freeze..I do quart bags (1 lb.)

Always a busy girl, Ginny! Our garden is completely gone and plowed up ready for fall planting.

Robin said...

You are getting pretty good with your videos Ginny. I have yet to post a video. I'm with you regarding the kraut....I like to do it the old-fashioned way!

Daisy said...

Ginny, you've got quite a lot of tomatoes there. That's a big windowsill! :-)

Oh, and, yes, of course your voice sounds sexy. :D

Mama-Bug, you'll be busy again soon enough :o)

Robin, thanks Robin (even though I had to do one over o) I did't know if the jar bit was old fashioned,thought I'd give it a try..it's more trouble for me that way..I'd rather put it all in the crock and know when it's ready at once and do it all..

Daisy, l wish I had more to make some good thick sauce, maybe I'll end up at the Farmers Market for them.. I always said you were a lady of good hearing :o)

Nice tomato harvest, I hope I get some tomatoes soon. Your videos are just fine and dandy.

Mrs.Pickles said...

Thanks for the tip! I followed your advise and have them in the freezer.

Gingerbreadshouse7 said...

Mrs. Pickles, glad I was able to give you a good tip.

Kris, I'm glad you liked the video :o) I'm not going to gripe about the tomato's they taste pretty good :o)

How nice to hear your voice. Thanks for posting videos. Our kraut has been fermenting for about 5 weeks. Do you think it's time to do the hot water bath?

Jody, I was told that when it's ready you could tell by the smell (or taste :o) try it and see if it's to your liking. Then full speed ahead :o)
