Ooh I got rose hips, too. Forgot to add those. I've tasted some of my various rose hips, including the native rosa virginiana hips. Only one tastes good.

Speaking of which I had some kale in a smoothie. In my neck of the woods the time to plant for cold-season veggies was a couple of months ago. Cabbage white butterfly babies are still apparently hatching on these veggies, though. My brussels sprouts look awful, but maybe I'll be able to say I actually ate these in a few weeks. This will be good as I'm never planting these again. Also...lemongrass in tea.

Well, technically it's my neighbor's garden:

10 red potatos
1 bunch carrots
1 onion
and a jar of pickled cucumbers.

I made potato salad!

Today marks the end of my garden, as we are expecting a hard freeze tomorrow night (27) after highs the past 3 days in the 80s. Final run included 63 banana peppers, 39 Anaheim peppers, 19 small eggplants, 9 giant marconi peppers, 4 bell peppers, 3 carmen peppers, 6 jalapeños, 9 early girl tomatoes and 1 Park's whopper tomato. Admittedly, many of the peppers are quite small, but anyone who grows peppers knows they can be eaten (and are delicious) at any stage, so I am counting them.

This reminds me of growing veggies in jars. It's been fun when the cucumbers are very small on the vine you place a jar over them. ( any veggie will so.) Then they will grow into the size if the jar. Not necessaily pickled but a oddity. Some carve faces on them before they are placed in the jar. As they grow the face does too!
