Fall Harvest

Vancouver Fall Garden HarvestYes, Vancouver gardens are productive into November. This year I’ve been learning through the Kitsilano Community Garden how to plant for multiple harvests from spring through autumn. At the recommendation of fellow gardeners, the mountain of leaves in the blender are about to be turned into tasty shiso pesto. It tastes very similar to the classic Italian version, and is prepared much the same way with shiso leaves in place of basil. They grow longer in the season, too.
