Fall harvest

November 11, 2009 at 9:32 am 3 comments

This has been a strange gardening year. When we first started harvesting stuff this summer, we had what seemed like a good crop—lots of blackberries and tomatoes and peppers.  That “good crop” lasted about two weeks, and then the temperatures soared and we went for months without rain. It later cooled down, but the rains didn’t materialize until October.  And now? 

We have a steady stream of fresh green peppers, and we’re picking baskets of tomatoes every few weeks and letting them ripen on the kitchen counter.  This year, we finally know the true meaning of “fall harvest.”  And a BLT with fresh tomatoes in November is every bit as good as the first one of the season.  🙂
