Harvest Monday

There is much in the garden waiting to be picked these days. I realized this week, that's where it is staying. It's not intentional, though. It is easier to make and eat bread, fatten up on nuts, than to go root out a couple beets. With that now in mind, it was a pleasure to pluck a couple beets, carrots, and leeks from the ground yesterday for dinner. They met up with an apple and found their way into me through the juicer. Breakfast was a scramble of Brussels, leeks, spinach and garlic. 

This, and much more interesting Monday posts are inspired by Daphne Dandelions.

  1. Your juice looks so fresh and yummy- but to me THAT would be the breakfast. ;p

  2. Need to get myself a juicer. There are so many lovely things that could be treated that way. Great colour.

  4. That looks like a really yummy juice mix. We use a lot of our preserved items in the winter with only supplementation from the fresh harvests. Makes for rather boring Harvest Monday posts from December through mid March. Oh well, what we do bring in is delicious and a lot fresher than most people enjoy this time of year.

  6. Liz-yes, it was quite pleasant and surprisingly filling! Apple it's a great base. There is a single apple in there, giving it a nice sweetness.

    FG - any sort of freshness is a bonus this time of year. You have those starts of yours.to draw you toward spring planting.

    In general, we should juice more than we do. It is a nice opting to have.
