Fall Harvest

Our fall garden was a little thin this year. Our watermelon, pumpkins, squash and Malibar spinach didn't make it through the hot summer. It was getting chilly and time to harvest. Sadie and I pulled all the peanuts out of the ground - I couldn't believe how many there were under all that dirt!

The sweet potatoes were the next to come out. They were petite, tender and colorful. We also harvested 12 small sunchokes. Also called Jerusalem artichokes, they are a species of sunflower with a sweet and nutty tuber with a texture similar to a potato. Delicious!
