Canadian Thanksgiving this past weekend truly marked the end of the harvest. The garden this year produced wonderful beans and squash and leeks. The long cold month of July slowed the development of tomatoes and I’ve had to ripen most of them indoors.
My favorite pumpkins produced well and Larry and I will be eating lots of pumpkin soup this winter.
This is the very end of the tomatoes, beets and zucchini. When finished, I’ll grind them and use them to layer casseroles, or add stock and make soup or heat and add to pasta with sharp cheese.
The leaves are turning and the sun is getting is low.
The nights are very cool and we’ve had to light the wood stove in the evenings.
The trees know it’s time to hibernate.
Have a colourful autumn and a good end of harvest celebration where you are.
