What are you making with your harvest?

I'd be really interested to read some of the things folks are doing with their harvested vegetables.  Please share recipes!!!!

Today I harvested over a pound of Kale, so I thought I'd share the Italian/American soup version of the Portuguese classic Caldo Verde, that I have waiting in the crock pot for dinner tonight.  It is yummy!


Olive Oil, 2 tbsp
Italian Sausage, pork, 1/2 pound , sliced  
Onions, raw, 1 large, chopped
Garlic, 1 clove, minced
Red Potatoes, 3 small, diced
Beans, white, 1 can
Chicken Broth, 64 fl oz
Kale, 8 cup, chopped
Old Bay Seasoning, 1 tbsp
Salt & Pepper
In a saute pan, heat 2 tbs of Olive oil, add the onion and garlic, and saute for about 3 minutes.  Add the diced potatoes, and continue sauteeing for another 3 to 4 minutes.  Remove the vegetables to the crock pot, and add the sausage to the pan and cook approximately 5 minutes. Add to crock pot.  Now add beans, broth, and seasonings to crock pot and set to low for 6 - 8 hours.  About an hour before serving, add the kale.


  1. I guess I should warn you, that this recipe could feed a small army. We had it for dinner tonight with salad, we sent some to several neighbors, and still have plenty to freeze for another day. Halving the recipe should be no problem, though.

    1. This soup sounds very good. We will have to try it soon.
