Late Fall harvest goin' in the pot
Thanks to a friend who really wanted me to try a few new tomato varieties, I picked some ping-pong ball sized tomatoes yesterday, along with another ox-heart and some that I lost their identification to make a robust soup/goulash/succotash kind of dish, along with a beautiful roast supplied by a neighbor. (Not all that are picture made it in the pot since some had a little more ripening to do.)
Hmmm, I wonder if that neighbor's roast is one that got loose on our land this Spring?
He is selling the Angus beef and cooked up some at Webb Fair on our property to promote it, but since I cannot make this an advertisement, contact me if you are curious.
The vegetable concoction was all picked fresh from the garden, except for the corn which had been frozen. Several tomato types, okra, fuzzy melon, and garlic with a beef stock.
After the roast, we have more stock to add to it. Today I think I will add some fresh picked kale, bok choy, spinach, and mustards since we ate most of the veggies and did not drink it as soup.
Yes, we dodged another frost from a few days ago. I was actually concerned about a freeze so I put some plastic on the squash and bitter melon. Apparently not needed since everything else survived.
