Harvest Updates, Nov 21, 2011

It's Mikan (mandarin) time!!!
Tree Kale(collard)
Chayotes, Yam greens, Akane apples, and our one and ONLY persimmon.
It's the first persimmon from this tree!
more Tree Kale(collard)

More Chayotes, the Last of the Cucumbers and a Zucchini
More Mikan :-)
Chayotes galore....when you get this much you just have to start giving them away! The red thing is a mini pomegranate. It's not very sweet, but sure is pretty!
These are White Guavas!
It does look a lot like the Chayotes,
but the taste and aroma are a world apart!
Surprise eggplant from the plant near our Valencia orange tree.
Another Chayote, Zuke Eggplant Guava, Mikan day
The Mikans we shared with our neighbor
turned into a TROUT!!!!
I wanted to share this trout with you even though we didn't grow it or harvest it, that swapping with your neighbors is an important way to diversify your diet!
(They fish at a local stocked private lake, but they don't eat fish!)
More Yam Greens, Mikans and Chayotes
Even MORE Chayote....argggghhh... we stir fry, we boil in soups, we bake them, we chop them up into fried rice, we put them in our salads yet they keep coming!!!
The difference between a Chayote and a White Guava.

Green Onions and a hefty Eggplant
Lots of Guava! Share some with the neighbors and our Gardener
