Harvest time!

    God I love gardening.

    For dinner tonight, we're having stuffed peppers. They are home grown organic bell peppers, and will be stuffed with a mix of yummies primarily home-milled home-grown corn bread (polenta.) The stuffing will also have home grown garlic and onions and herbs.

    We'll also have pumpkin soup with home grown orgainc squash, pumpkins, carrots, onions, herbs.

    Whatever protein we have (chicken stock in the soup, for example) comes from the store.... but that's a minor fraction of the dishes.

    I don't know how we'll round out the meal....

    We have pumpkin pie for dessert.

    I don't know if men and women are "wired" differently, as Gabrielle asked (though I expect they are), but am I ever psyched about all the goodies coming in from the garden this time of year. I'll be in the kitchen today.

    Oooh, I haven't had stuffed peppers in a long time. Maybe I should make some soon. Yummy! Thanks for making me realize I'm hungry!

    I'm definitely going to miss having a yard for gardening next summer (I'm already eyeing up the fall bulbs...the ones for spring flowers...longingly, wishing I had a place to plant them). I think I'll order some paperwhites to force indoors this winter.

    I've been cutting herbs to dry, and pulling long term storage carrots, onions and tunips. I wished I had saved some potatos, but they were just too yummy when they were "new".
    Both sweet and dill pickles are canned{thank you sister} and about 14 quarts of berries are frozen.
    My pumpkins failed this year,and green beans didn't do to well either. Just way to hot, and too many mean bugs.

    Oh! I forgot, we're having home grown/vine ripened watermelon on the side.

    Hypatia! Cheers! I can send you rhubarb to go with your frozen berries, if you're planning to make pies. Yum.
