Last harvest of the year: Brussels sprouts, carrots, and three pea pods

At last, everything from our gardens that can be harvested is done. We’ve got several dozen brussels sprouts, petite and knobby carrots, about seven total, and three  pea pods that Hari found growing on the fence along the alley where I planted peas and beans late in the summer. Hari also pulled up a beet, but it looked like it had split open. So I tossed it back onto the planting bed. Good compost!

Next year we’ll do a more planned planting, giving things more space and plenty of light. And with multiple plantings over the summer, we’ll have even more good stuff to eat.
