Ellaberry Harvests



On this page, we'll document our harvests for the current calendar year (2013) so you can sort of get an idea of what really "grows on" around here!  Some harvests are very disappointing and some are thrilling.  That's part of what makes growing food so addicting.  You never know what kind of results you'll have.  There's no garden like next year's garden, so the old saying goes. 

You can also look back and see what went on in the past, if you'd like.  Just take a peek under "Ellaberry Harvests" for our past harvests that we documented online.  (
2010, 2011, 2012)

Also know that I have a horrible habit of not documenting fresh herbs used for cooking.  Just know that we use rosemary, thyme, sage, garlic chives, onions chives, basil, oregano and mint freely throughout each year. I also rarely document the copious amounts of produce I pull and use as animal fodder or the food that we eat right out in the garden.  This is just meant to give you a bit of an idea of what it's like here.
