As if there isn’t enough going on today, I’m going to do a Harvest Monday post. I’m nearly done wrapping Christmas presents, but need to stop to make breakfast before lunchtime rolls around.
I am going to make an omelette with bell peppers and a green onion harvested this morning, eggs from our hens, and oranges that I harvested a few days ago. Then it will be back to wrapping presents.
We went away to Borrego Springs this week for a couple of relaxing days for our wedding anniversary. I happily bounced to my newly planted salad bed to see how it was growing, and unhappily discovered that some critter had eaten my lettuce seedlings to the ground. We don’t have deer or rabbits. We do have opossums aplenty. Did an opossum do this? Time to set the live trap again.
I really want to take out that old olive tree. We never get olives, it shades my vegetable beds, and it costs too much money every year to get it trimmed. I want it GONE. Then I can put in another vegetable bed.
Here is what I harvested last week, all citrus.
1 lb 3 oz Limes
2 lbs 6 oz Oranges, Navel
TOTAL PRODUCE 3 lbs 9 oz plus a couple of eggs
If you had a harvest, visit Daphne’s Dandelions. And have a very Merry Christmas, if that is a holiday that you celebrate.
