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.
Very early, one of our tomatillos insists on blooming. Perhaps the bloom will survive to give us early fruit. Perhaps not. We will have to be patient, to wait.
We had a bumper crop of tomatillos this year. A curious thing we discovered is that the husk can dry, leaving only the veins as a fragile, beautiful remnant. This is preserved, framed by photography as well preserved and framed in my mind.
