We have our first frost warning tonight so my girlie and I harvested the last of the summer vegetables. I still have turnips, chard & leeks out there as well as some perennial herbs. Aside from that, my growing season is pretty much over.
There were a lot of green tomatoes, 3 butternut squash, 6 heads of celery (I was right, no one needs this much celery) basil, and a bowl of various peppers, beans, tiny eggplant & zucchini and a few potatoes I left behind the other day.
Tonight I made one last batch of pesto to freeze, blanched the rest of the green beans for my bag in the freezer and currently I have a batch of Green Tomato & Jalapeno Jam simmering on the stove top. It's got quite a kick to it for only having 4 peppers in it!
Now I need to find a few more recipes for green tomatoes!
