Late Summer Kitchen Garden
It’s September. This morning there was a coolness in the air presaging a pleasant Fall. I can wait for the crisp snap of the Autumn morning. I’ve come to learn the importance of enjoying the season I’m in. The green remains, though one or two trees are shedding the occasional leaf. Then there’s the kitchen garden.
The garden remains productive. The zucchini has been a pleasant surprise and the tomatoes have ripened on the vine. The marinara sauce should last into Thanksgiving.
This weekend’s project? Pickling the cucumbers. It’s an experiment. We only planted one vine, so we’ll see.
Vinegar, some pepper corns, salt, sugar, garlic and a little dill weed. Check back next week and I’ll let you know. How it turns out.
In the meantime, here is today’s harvest.
