This week brought our first freezing temperatures. It got down around 25F one night, and below 30F another. All the tender herbs and vegetables are now history.
The Sun Gold tomatoes were still producing in early November. They’ve given us tomatoes for five months now, starting to produce in mid June. I’m going to miss them for sure!
There were quite a few blooms still on them. Pretty amazing given the cold weather and several frosts lately!
After the freeze they are pretty sorry looking.
I decided to harvest a lot of the chard leaves before covering them with the cold frame for protection. I’m hoping to get these plants to overwinter and give us some more greens next spring. I froze some of the chard for use this winter. I plan to use it in frittatas and soups. There was a little over two pounds of chard in all.
I harvested the last Brown Turkey fig of the season. It wound up on my breakfast yogurt one morning, along with some sliced banana and homemade granola.
I will miss the fresh figs, but I did make a small batch of fig preserves. And we dried some of the figs so we can enjoy them later too. I enjoyed some of the preserves on the English Muffins my wife made last week.
I picked any ripe tomatoes I could find, and a few green ones that may ripen later. I fried some of the green ones for dinner last night. We don’t eat much fried food, but we love fried green tomatoes! I dredge these in a cornmeal/flour mix and fry them in a little oil.
I also harvested kale this week, plus a cucumber, lettuce and arugula from the greenhouse that went on a salad. The total harvest for the week was a little over 9 pounds, bringing the total harvested for the year to 844 pounds. For more gardener’s harvests, visit Daphne’s Dandelions.
We’ve had several frosts this past week. It’s amazing how long the tomato season has been this year. Fried green tomatoes….haven’t made those this year…maybe tonight!

Beautiful post…and now I’m inspired and hungry, it all looks fantastic and sound delicious.
Not too shabby of a harvest for this late in the season, all the food looks wonderful as usual!
Looks like a great late fall harvest!

Those fried green tomatoes look delicious. What a prolific producer your Sungold plant was!
Yummo! Love fired green tomatoes. Your look lovely. Good enough for breakfast even and that gives me an idea…
very nice! I love to look at your harvests and see what you do with them!
The picture of the fried green tomatoes makes me hungry! They look delicious!
That fig preserve looks awesome. I can’t wait to grow figs in our garden next year. Our tomato plants have been producing flowers too, and some have little green tomatoes on them. I need to pull them soon. Poor plants.
I can’t believe the Sungold tomatoes lasted this long, I’ll have to try it someday. The fig jam looks really good.

It’s amazing how long those Sungold kept producing!!
Got any spare fig jam?? I’ll trade you!
I’ve got cranberry butter, triple berry jam, strawberry jam, blueberry preserve, and beet relish… if I were you I would hoard every last bit of anything fig related…I LOVE figs in any capacity. I’d love to have a fig tree of my own, maybe when I’m out of the community garden and in a permanent spot of my own.
I don’t know what looks better the food or the veg! I have not had any luck getting the Bright Lights chard to overwinter. I’ve heard the green varieties are really hardy though.
I am still amazed that you seem to have gotten more figs in Indiana than I got in California. How large is your tree? I am afraid that I’ve been over-pruning my tree.
Your harvest looks fabulous, like always. I hope that your greenhouse and crop covers will allow you to keep up the harvesting throughout the winter months.

Oh the last of the figs, how sad. I keep wondering if I can fit a fig tree into my yard somehow. Maybe.
