We had our first frost a few days ago, and one every day since. I harvested the last of our summer garden... a handful of okra, several eggplant, tromboncino squash (heartily recommended- these bore faithfully all summer and fall), 3 tiny tomatoes, pimiento peppers, a few crowder peas and raspberries, and a bouquet of zinnias, sunflowers, celosia, and purple coneflower. The leaves are dropping in earnest, and the air is rich with the spicy, earthy scent of Fall. While researching links for the tromboncino, I found this interesting recipe. And another. Enjoy!
