End of Autumn

Seasonal Goodness happening here.

Collecting leaves, planting seeds (we’re staring our cherry tomatoes super early this year. It is an experiment to see if we can get early summer cherry tomatoes).

In the garden, this year’s tomato plants are coming down. Cutting away the withering growth to let the understory thrive. The understory consists of celery, and winter or over wintering beets, parsnips, kale and arugula.

Here are the tomatoes I harvested from the garden a few days ago, before I began to cut the plants down. These tomatoes are now frozen and will be mixed in with the delicious frozen tomatoes from the summer’s prime to make homemade salsa.
