Last of the Harvest

Been pulling in the last of the garden. I still have a number of green tomatoes, but picking them anyway and letting them ripen indoors. I tried tomatillos this year. Not a bad amount for one plant and I still have more to pick within the next few days. Some squash are coming in, but I'm not sure they'll get big enough to pick before a major frost. 2 eggplants were ready too, as is the chard.

As I don't have time to do all I want right now, most will be frozen (eggplant will be battered and fried first) until I have the time to make my sauce, eggplant parm and salsa.

Ok.....enough of fall. Bring back summer!

Back Again!

After a summer hiatus (sorry, but work was overwhelming) the blog is back and running. The garden had problems this year with the weather that we had. Lots of work and little to show, unfortunately. I still have tomatoes, tomatillos and squash on the vines. None are ready yet, but I'll have to pick them anyway I guess.

My parents, on the other hand, who are much further away from the lake (Ontario) than I am, had great success.

I'll be doing some seed saving now, for next year. Which I hope will be better!
