So much to do at the end of the garden season and I often end up, like this year, with odds and ends of produce, culled right before the first hard frost or immediately after.
Last week I did big bunches of herbs--rosemary, oregano, melissa, mountain mint, horehound and catnip.
These gorgeous peppers were picked about the same time.
I also picked most of the green tomatoes and they are ripening in a colander in the laundry room.
Tonight our neighborhood association had its annual meeting and I made a box of that near-instant couscous (tomato lentil) and ringed it with bright tomatoes from the colander. It tasted like summer just as the year is darkening to winter.
The winter-over greens got covered over with leaves a week ago and now they're getting some nice rain. I'll think them out soon and they will be ready to eat in January or February. Do you grow any winter-over crops?
