Last harvest

A very hard freeze is predicted so Faye cleaned up the vegetable garden today. Clockwise from upper left: Tomatoes; tomatillos; honey (not ours – locally sourced); home canned applesauce (not our apples though locally sourced); not quite ripe Chocolate Cherry tomatoes; little bitty poblanos; and jalapenos.

Apple press

Apple press

On the go much of this Fall Your Clock Back day. Off to the Auburn Pancake Breakfast which Margaret, my mother-in-law likes to do, visiting with Raymond and Gwen along with making the acquaintance of their new dog Levi, Allan and Connie who put apples through a grinder/chopper (?), putting the resultant product through a press, and making juice (which was delicious!). The photo shows the results of chopping apples which will then go to the press. Home just after sunset to find three dogs more than ready to go outside to pee, then come back in and investigate the dog smells on our pant legs.
