August-October Garden Summary!

Wow….it has been too long.  The garden has been very good to us this year and continues to produce endive, radicchio, and arugula.  We are still working on our 2 varieties of butternut squash as well. I planted some Romanesco Broccoli... or is it cauliflower? Well,  it looks beautiful under the hoop house but never grew the crown.  I am not sure what will come of it since the temps are getting down the the single digits tonight!  Brrrrr.  Her is what has been happening since August in the garden.  Edit:  Will have to have a part 2 for November through now!  I will do another blog on the pizza oven soon!

Great Tomato Year!

Tomatoes galore!  Plus fresh basil.

Beets, Cucs, and more 'maters!

Even got to blanch some for freezing this year…but not a bunch. We just eat so many!

One of my favorite new recipes. Skin off of cherry and San Marzano tomatoes in a marinade.  Top on crunchy bread and ricotta.

Zucchinis were a labor of love…did surgery several times for the SVB but it was worth it!  Also a new favorite cucumber was the Amiga.

New this year…this is either the Black Krim or Cherokee Purple…Both were good.


My new favorite sauce…puttanesca!  Plenty to Freeze too!
