Finally...A Harvest

It has not been a very good year for our garden. The pests have been the worst on record and the weather has been quite a bit cooler (thank goodness for a pregnant mama) which seems to have stalled the tomatoes and peppers. Finally this week Ryan was able to pick a good looking pile of veggies. We still have to buy corn, squash (!) and beans at the farmer's market as our entire three sisters garden was eaten from underground but at least we have some homegrown tomatoes and peppers. I am sautéing the padron peppers tonight and maybe slow roasting the roma tomatoes to enjoy over a couple of days. I just leave the cherry tomatoes on the counter and Gracie nibbles on them like candy.

I would freeze the Romas but the freezer is full! Not full of meals to eat in the next couple of weeks but mostly breads. French toast this weekend will hopefully make a dent in that! And it is about time to toss out the ice cream collection that I seem to keep adding to but am always too tired to eat at the end of the day.
