August Harvest

Getting ready to plant again for the Fall. So many carrots were harvested this year, success! Everything seemed to do very, very well. The only plant I made a bad decision about at this point is the cauliflower. I placed the zucchini plant next to the cauliflower…not wise. Needless to say the zucchini plant dwarfed over the cauliflower plant and prevented it from growing, but I learned to have more careful forethought about placement. I pulled the zucchini plants today, they did so well! I harvested 4 more gigantic zucchini just in the last 4 days. I pulled all of the carrots and beets. I also discovered that I planted the wrong kind of fennel plant, need to do more research for next year. Does anyone know where I can get the fennel plant that allows me to harvest a large bulb as opposed to just the fronds? My basil is producing quite a bounty and continues. My tomatillo plants and tomato plants are doing great as well. Now I need to get out there this week and plant my fall garden.

Tomatillo Salsa

I made Tomatillo Salsa last week. It consisted of mostly Tomatillos but I also put in some ripe cherry and grape tomatoes, garlic, onions & salt. Next time I’ll throw some cilantro in. But this salsa was a hit and we’ll continue to make it!

Tomatillo’s are related to the tomato. They are a staple in the mexican cuisine. They grow in a husk and are kind of tangy, spicey I’ve found. You should try them if you see them at the supermarket or farmer’s market.

Homemade Applesauce

We got a variety of apples from our CSA a couple of weeks ago and so my son and I made apple sauce with them. This is what we did.
