Sauteed beans, garlic & onions for dinner with pickled cuke/onion/tomato salad.

Those cukes were harvested just this morning from the first planting of cukes and are actually a late surprise.  The plants will be pulled once the last 2 fruits are ready to pick.  The 2nd planting of cukes has big straight fruits still growing.  I'll cover them during cold spells like the one coming tomorrow night.

Coffee breaks over...back to the winter garden plans.

Well, it started like this...


And some reading and excitement got me to here...


Which finally ended up with this late last night...


But I only got to really taste it a few minutes ago!



(Homegrown, homemade sweet and spicy pepper jam.  My first foray into canning/preserving!  Four jars have already been given away as gifts and/or misappropriated.  I'm eating what didn't fit into jars.  Texture is perfect, flavor is indescribably good. Smile )

Nice! If cooking something well is very rewarding, making food from what you've grown yourself takes it to an even more satisfying level.

Greens mixture of broccoli raab leaves and florets, red giant mustard leaves, marvel of four seasons lettuce, dino kale, and red winter kale[that's the stuff I gre], sauteed in butter and caramelized onions and some garlic[none of which I grew/milked/churned/whatever].

I've been eating a lot of that lately, and don't get tired of it easily. I've really grown to like "bitter greens," and these aren't really bitter to my taste anyway.

Cubanelle peppers went in the fridge and tomatoes were made into another batch of V8 juice.  Drank some and froze the rest to enjoy over winter.

Hey there Marc, thanks! 

The big yellowish one is 20 ounces, variety is Hillbilly and came from a late planted sucker.  I am waiting on another one on this plant still ripening and probably one third bigger than this one.   The brown one is black krim, also from a late planted sucker.  I'm at the point where I'm saying Oh Good Lord, another tomato?  There is about 8 more pounds or so to harvest.  Admittedly a lovely problem to have.

Congrats on your "problem."

Both of those are varieties I've really wanted to plant, but I ran out of space this year. Glad to see they can get so big! It's always fun growing 'em huge. Next year!

Yesterday while making pickled ginger I made a qt. of V6 tomato juice; tomatoes, kale, celery, onions, peppers and carrots. I want to thank again whoever posted that recipe, it has been the best. I think I have enough tomatoes for another two qts. or so to freeze. Today we are making an apple cake with the last our apples and tomorrow making butternut chipotle soup for our artists reception "paint the town" get together Sat. night.

Hi John

The Best you say?  Oh wow, that was me with the V8 recipe.  Made me smile to hear how much you enjoy it.
I love it too! I find the fresh taste and natural sweetness is out of this world.  Smile
