The Final Harvest of 2013.
The Video.

My friend Neil Young and I have made a little video for you of my final garden harvest. A relaxing way for you to ease into your Monday.

Final Vegetable Garden Harvest 2013


Final harvest of the 2013 front yard vegetable garden.

Wanna see last year’s Sweet Potato Harvest and how to cure sweet potatoes? See the post here.


  1. Geez, I never look that nice when I’m gardening! It’s always beat up old jeans and a t-shirt. Looking great, Karen :)

    Well there was more to it than lemongrass; for one thing it was red. It was a melange of citrusy roots and leaves. Thanks for the growing info. It’s also great in thai food.

    I’ve been thinking about that Lemongrass ever since I watched the video yesterday morning. Then I was buying matcha powder at this great tea seller in town and they gave me a sample of a lovely citrus-y tea that contained, you guessed it, Lemongrass. So I am wondering: how does it do in our cold climate (I’m in Newmarket) and also, what shade/sun requirements does it have? I love the fact it can be used like any ornamental grass and then also harvested to eat/drink. :)

      Hi Christine – This is my first year growing lemongrass, but I suspect it’ll die come the frost and colder weather. I have it in a spot where it gets quite a lot of sun. SO many people have told me about the whole tea thing I’m going to have to try it. :) I don’t even drink tea, LOL. I guess since it’s just lemongrass in hot water it won’t really be tea but more like Neocitran. :) ~ karen!

    Karen, do you buy new seeds every year or you just “make” your own seeds from your garden now?

    • Karen says:

      I do both Olga. I try new things every year and save seeds from stuff I liked. But I buy seeds that are biennials like beets etc. ~ karen!
