Aromatic herbs and tomatoes harvests in 2013

Harvest and Store
December 31, 2013

Like every year, I created a collage picture of all 2013 herbs and vegetables harvests from my rooftop. Some pictures are missing, but however, the picture is representative of 2013.

From the top the winter harvests: alexanders and winter purslane, parsnips, beets, carrots and the gorgeous miniature cauliflowers. In spring the aromatic herbs were ready to be used fresh and to be stored. Then all the summer vegetables: tomatoes, cucumbers, chilies and sweet peppers. At the bottom the autumn harvests of colorful radishes and licorice.

I have not weighed herbs, to my regret because the harvest of basil and cinnamon basil was incredible.
