After hearing the warning of the first frost, Eric and the kids headed over to the community garden to harvest what they could and clean up our plot. They came home with a dozen red tomatoes, a dozen green ones (I'm going to try a trick I read of wrapping them in newspaper to ripen), almost 30 small green peppers, and a few butternut squash. We cut up and froze the peppers, and they will easily last us until next summer. (We've gotten tons of peppers this year!)
We don't care much for squash, but I like to puree and freeze it as a substitute for pumpkin in baked goods. Muffins and breads turn out lighter in color, but they still taste delicious!
If you garden, are you still harvesting, or is the season over where you are, too?
