First Frost Harvest

Saturday, October 9th, 2010

With the impending frost last Saturday we harvested tons of produce.  We grabbed all our green beans (mostly dried on the vine), cut our sweet potato vines (we’ve heard that if the vines experience a frost, then the sweet potatoes don’t taste as good), harvested our peppers and tomatoes, picked pears from a tree in town, picked a 20 gallon tub of peppers from Steve Salt, and cut our basil and coriander to dry inside.

So much work before a frost, before everything settles into winter.

Zucchini and Carrot Pickles

Wednesday, July 28th, 2010

We’re pickling just about everything these days. Here’s another one we did, following the directions at How to Pickle Anything.  We used Zucchini, Carrot, Basil, Garlic, and Onions.  Mmmmmmm.
