28 what?!!?

Posted by:  Tanille

It’s fall my friends and it’s gorgeous outside.   My favorite time of the year. The weather is perfect, the scenery is beautiful, there is  a crispness in the air. But that’s all about to end, because it’s going to be 28 degrees  tomorrow night.  Ugh.  I lie awake wondering.  Where did the summer go?  I didn’t even make it to the lake (Tahoe) once.  What is going to happen to my garden?   I have a tomato plant bursting with green tomatoes.  Do I cover them and hope for the best, or do I cut my losses and do friend green tomatoes. Are fried green tomatoes even good.  I hear they are great, but do I want to bother?

I am running out of time to make these decisions.    In fact, I have less than 24 hours.  I have a ton of lavender growing.  Do I harvest it or what? Mental note to check my Martha Stewart “Living ” magazine tomorrow on how to do that.   So much on my mind tonight. . .

This was written last week in the middle of the night, in a panic.  Fall is still around, but it is cold.  So the tomatoes have been removed and I still haven’t had the time to fry them.  I did cut the lavender but it sat on my counter for a week while I tried to figure out what to do with it.  I ended up throwing it away.

A Martha Stewart I will never be, although I always have good intentions.  But I did get my yard tidied up and everything cut back and ready for the freeze.  The sweaters and scarves are out and the cookbooks are dusted and ready to go.   Ahhh I do love the fall.

  1. What kind of tree is that in the pic Tanille? Is it an apricot or a peach? I am looking for one that orangey/crimson colour to plant in the garden bed outside my apartment

    • Hi Oliver!

      I would love to say that the tree is right in my backyard, but ahem, I just got the picture off of the internet. So, we’ll call it a virtual mango tree. How’s that?

  2. I had the same problem, I made green tomato salsa, and then roasted the salsa with chicken, put the sauce in a blender and made the best enchilada sauce! I also have an awesome fried green tomato recipe…with pancetta and roasted garlic aioli…:) Green tomatoes are actually pretty delicious.
