The table on the porch is full of these beautiful pumpkins, gords and squashes. Some we grew and the others came from our son's in-laws place in Chelias. They have HUGE, awesome garden and are very generous.
Last night we had pumpkin cake. I'll have to work out the recipe because I made it by "feel".
It was made of baked pumpkin, whole wheat flour, lots of spices and had dried figs in it.
So moist & yummy!!!
Today I planted garlic on the north end of one of the large raised beds. I bought the garlic at the local fruit stand. Maybe next year I'll order some hard stem varieties. You can see what the bed looked like before...
I placed the cloves about 4 inches apart and pushed about an inch into the ground.
Now to hope till spring that they will grow. :)
This is the last of tomatoes that we have inside ripening.
We are using them as they get ripe in our salads or with cottage cheese.
I love the pictures of produce!
They are beautiful and give me hope
that we will have more next summer.
