Afternoon Harvest

A few pictures of the harvest from the other day. In these photos: Kale, Butter Lettuce, Red Leaf Lettuce, Parsley, and Cinnamon Basil.

I harvest Kale, Basil, and Parsley almost every day for the rabbits, but this was our first time harvesting the lettuce and so far it's been salads every night for a week! It is amazing eating out of your own garden! Already looking forward to planting again in the spring!

Next week I'll be picking lettuces again and zucchini (had a gorgeous zucchini ready this week, but the dogs snuck into the veggie garden and snatched it. At least someone got to eat it...) and perhaps a pumpkin will be ready before it freezes...

We have tons of broccoli plants that are huge-I've been feeding leaves to the rabbits, but no florets are forming??? I need to do a little more google research on that one.

In your first picture, how do you leave one part green and make the rest B&W?? I love that technique!

I did it in Photoshop using the color replacement tool. :)
