Winter?

It’s been a gorgeous fall so far, by anyone’s standards, I think. September was warmer than average but we also got some much-needed rain and the temperatures were wonderful.  October 1st was absolutely stunning.

It was 90 degrees just a couple of weeks ago. They are predicting snow for this weekend.

All I can say to that is, no. No, no, no. No. I’m not ready.

I’ve still got a long list of gardening chores to get done this fall, if I can ever screw up the courage to go into my gardens again (since seeing that snake I’ve hardly been in the yard). It’s unfortunate for a gardener to have a snake phobia, but there you have it.

I also still have produce coming weekly from our CSA–we still have a couple boxes coming, plus some harvest events (which for us will most likely be lots of squash). And I still have to put out the graveyard. And I’d love to have the time to dry some herbs.

If it looks like it’s going to freeze on Saturday night–there is a predicted low, at this point, of 30–we will pick all of our green tomatoes before dark and I will then most likely spend Sunday making green tomato relish.

This was the view walking in to work this morning–it looks like a beautiful summer morning, doesn’t it?

Here’s to the hope of lots more warmer-than-average weather in October. :)

    Can you explain how you make green tomato relish and what you use it for?
