We did it with pears and filled the bottles with brandy after the pears were ripe.

wow, unless one lives in one of the western states or Florida I can't believe you are still picking from your garden. Oh, I forgot some are fall veggies and will be around a while longer. I might give them a try next year. Anyway good for all of you. I probably could have picked up the hickory nuts, but decided to leave them for the birds. If I haven't used them before I do not need to start now.

We just brought in three heaping buckets of hot peppers, 1/2 of Sweet 100 tomatoes and 1/2 of yard long beans. The side garden is rather sheltered and I only have so much time to put things up tonight.

This late in the year? Parsley. And about 6 cherry tomatoes. We pulled the tomato plants up today and the garden is GONE.

Marinaded tomatoes, kale, squash, eggplant and onions together, then grilled them. Yum!

The little gem lettuce. I'm not a big fan of the flavor of this lettuce, but it is very easy to grow. The flavor is strong and the texture is a little coarse. I've been spoiled by leaf lettuce. Little Gem probably has more vitamins, though. There are a couple of small heads left in the bed. If they pull through the frost, I'll try to eat them up this weekend.

The most delicious acorn squash! I only got TWO this year as I just put some vines in the backyard and did not really prepare much. It is GOOD. DRY and sweet and rich. Hmmm not compatible with my diet, but I'm eating it anyway! This is one of the green acorn squash, and I think it may be table queen?

I've had the best luck with butternut squash, and all of the times I've tried to grow this (and other winter squash), I just don't get very many. Anyway this was worth it...so delicious. I'm may start preparing a spot to make a pumpkin patch for next year.
