Beet and Onion Harvest

I’ve harvested all of my garden except my herbs and squash. I’m hoping the squash will plump up a bit more before it freezes. The herbs I’m going to dig up when I get a spare couple minutes and bring into our greenhouse so I can enjoy fresh herbs all winter.

I only planted small patches of beets, onions and shallots so my harvest was pretty modest, but it’s plenty for a couple meals.

Onions

The shallots did the best (on the left) and I’m going to do even more next year. The red onions did ok but better than the white ones. I’m not sure why they didn’t get bigger. I’m going to try again next year. I think they’d do better with nutrients and richer soil.

Beets

The beets did well enough that I had to peel and freeze most of them. I was surprised they did well because the tops didn’t look like much.
