November Harvest box "extra edition"

Florencio trimming and washing the leeks.

All dressed up and ready to go.

Grams sorting in the warmth of the greenhouse.

Green and purple cauliflower. Doesn't it look like a work of art?

Grams taking a much deserved break.

Angie enjoying our fried bread, cream cheese and tomatoes for lunch.

This is a tradition in our family. Our grandmother Daisy Gardner (a great name, don't you agree?), Angie's great grandmother, was known to make these for us and served them on her porch which is in the middle of the gardens by the house. Great memories.

Another yummy dessert.

Fried potatoes to add to the fried bread, cream cheese, sometimes thinly sliced onions along with farm grown tomatoes.

Dried flowers awaiting their harvest box location.

Rose hips and persimmon to be put into boxes.

Late season items to go in the November boxes.

Colorful Swiss Chard to be bundled.

Bryan and Grams filling the boxes.

Healthy rose hips have been hanging and drying in the greenhouse for a couple weeks.

Persimmons will keep for a while. So tasty!

Warty, striped gourds in many shapes and sizes.
