I have a few goals for the fall. #1 freeze summer vegetables and #2 learn to knit a hat and gloves. My tomato crop didn’t yield as much fruit as I had anticipated. Majority of the tomatoes have ended up in blts and in caprese salad. I wanted to make a pot of tomato soup but realized I needed a food mill—one of the few kitchen tools I don’t own. I still have a bunch of green zebras and black krims out on the vines. Frost hasn’t hit here so maybe I will give them a few more days to ripen.
Last night I came across Margaret Roach’s blog—a blog that has been recommended to me a number of times but I never remembered to actual visit till I followed some links. I spent hours last night reading her archives. For any new or experienced gardener Margaret’s blog is a must read. Tons of useful information and gorgeous photos. Above is a shot of her freezer filled with tomato sauces. She has a great list of recipes for freezing pesto, winter squash, and apple sauce too. Check out her blog now: awaytogarden.com.
