TD, holy cow, that's quite a haul!!! Today's Harvest - Page 5 3170584802 Mine is much smaller, but it's so nice to have my own tomatoes for salad for a couple of days, instead of those inferior ones from the farm stand. Today's Harvest - Page 5 Dscn0810

Those are all really pretty.  I'm just hoping I can keep the pests at bay long enough to have a harvest near that size.  The pests  are really giving me fits.

From the SFG today I got my one and only Sakatas Sweet Melon (courtesy of seeds from Scorpio Rising ... merci beaucoup) and some Cucamelons. No snickering allowed on the shape of that melon.

That is a lovely shaped melon! Shocked But it's the cucamelons that intrigue me. I've read that they taste like a citrusy cucumber, so I'm wondering how do you use them. In salads, like a regular cucumber? Or do you just munch them as a snack? They're so cute, they make me want to grow them!

HG ... We just snack on the Cucamelons.  I eat them right off the vines when I am out in the garden. I have a bowl of them in the kitchen and I take one or two to munch on when I pass by. I think they could be included in a salad. They have a cucumber-lime taste.

Everyone who has cucamelons seems to enjoy them. I may just have to try them in the cucumber bed. Very Happy

These came inside today because they fell off when I was trying to cover them with panty hose.  It was hard to do.  Covering them was a lengthy delicate process.  I tried to do some in clusters, but that's when these fell off.  I got about 30 covered up.  These 4 were sort of fatalities.

The forecasts for my area just aren't accurate enough for this time of year. I've been going out late at night to cover plants as I realize the temperature in my yard is several degrees lower than the closest weather station is reporting, and that my low is therefore going to be much lower than predicted and I'm likely to get frost. Again.

It IS that time of year that frosts are to be expected, but I like ekeing out that last bit of size and ripeness!

Celeriac are fine with light frost, but not a freeze. They've been ok so far, but as I can't count on the forecast, I'm done gambling and scurrying and worrying, and harvested them today. Here they are before I cut the stems and long rootlets off. They are in water; you really aren't supposed to wash them before storage, but they want to be humid so I just gave them a dip without scrubbing.

The roots: Mashed, soups/stews, places where a root veg medley would be used -- like pasties (Cornish meat pies) and shepherds pie, also, raw in salads (modified Waldorf salad for instance.) I've seen gratin recipes, but I'm not really a gratin gal.

The tops: Not sure. I'm guessing places where one would use cooked celery, because they seem a little tough to eat raw. I prefer tender, anemic grocery celery stalks for that. I composted most of the tops last year, but they are in much better shape this year and I feel like I should try to use them. OOooh, here we go, a celeriac leaf pesto recipe... interesting!:
https://www.rodalesorganiclife.com/food/7-ways-to-cook-with-celeriac-plus-how-to-grow-your-own/slide/2

So, celeriac is versatile - but requires a long growing season. I start them inside in February. They purportedly prefer somewhat swampy growing conditions, which MM doesn't 'do.' I'm going to add a square in the OSFG for them next year and compare.

No frost, but that's what happened to me last night. It was only supposed to get down to 45, but it was 40 when I woke up this morning. I'm afraid to go out and check my container tomato plants and my beautiful tromboncino that was scheduled to go into the greenhouse next week. Sad

Very interesting!  I am hot and cold on roots.  I like the crisp Asian turnips, and radishes.  Love carrots.  Iffy on beets.  Loves my spuds, do those count???  

I love pesto, but have only made the basil verison.  Let us know if you try the recipe!  You are very adventurous IMO with your palate and new recipes!!!

Since we are closing in on Halloween I thought I would display some of the strange things I harvested today.

First up is this naughty three pronged carrot.
Today's Harvest - Page 5 Img_5011


Then we have the infamous frankensquash that were supposed to be Canada Crookneck (CC) squash but which were growing next to Golden Zucchini and seem to have taken on the coloring of the zucchini and a shape similar to the CC.
Today's Harvest - Page 5 Img_5010


And finally, there is the Daikon Radish. Big, ugly and destined for composting along with the frankensquash.
