The Garden in Fall

The hoops are up and we are in the thick of autumn. My lettuce and spinach are doing very well, in fact I can just taste the baby spinach on my pizza this week! Still have the beets and leeks inside the hoops. The beets are there because I am lazy and don't want to do anything with them yet. The leeks could stand to get a bit bigger, and even could over winter out there for some yummy spring leeks!

I did harvest quite a bit. There are no more peppers or tomatoes out there. I cut most all the kale and chard as well. I am very happy with this year's gardening adventure. The pantry and freezer have lots of our hard work to show (and eat) for this fall and winter.

A trash bag full of kale. What the heck am I to do with that? Any ideas?
