The intention of posting daily this month (gulp) makes me realize there should be at least some systematic order so the postings aren’t completely hodgepodge.
Tuesdays shall be food days, based on the fact that almost every Tuesday evening for the past three+ years I’ve baked a cake. for Ed to take to the crew that spends Wednesdays fixing food to feed whoever shows up hungry at a church in the next town over. They’re my small contribution to the crew’s faithful, goodhearted effort to feed 400+. Even now a chocolate cake is cooling on the table filling the house with its enticing aroma.
A drier summer than normal meant a smaller garden that wouldn’t need as much watering. Fine by me! It was nice not having to keep up with harvesting, canning and drying. A warm September and October kept the tomato and pepper plants producing. Potatoes aren’t as big as past years but they’ve been tasty. We’ll continue digging them as we need them, as well as the beets and carrots that are left in the ground.
This was the biggest cauliflower I’ve ever grown. Cauliflower was especially abundant and flavorful this year.
Feeling very thankful to live in a place where food grows so abundantly!
