The garden season really is coming to an end for me. Though my tomatoes continue to produce, some of the fruit is diseased as of late so a fair amount of what I pick gets chucked. Peppers are still coming in, but probably not for long with the continually cool temperatures, and I harvested the first of my leeks today. (I remembered to take a picture, but only after they had been trimmed and rinsed.) I think I need to be better at hilling them up, so much of the leek was green, and too little was white. Maybe I tried 'blanching' them too late in the season?
I also made my first batch of pickled jalapenos tonight, I have never had them before but they look so good when others make them. I am sure they will be enjoyed on nachos all winter long.
The mustard greens and chard are covered in spiders, it really has become quite annoying to pick off so many spiders in order to have a salad. Icky. Icky as in the eight I flicked, shook off, and rescued from a sure drowning death during the harvest, sorting, and soaking of the salad I made today. Icky.
That about sums it all up on my end, I have been way too busy, and miss keeping up with everyone's garden happenings. I hope to catch up with what you all have been doing later on this week, and I hope you are enjoying the new season and all that it brings. Happy Gardening!
