Who's got one ? what are you growing ? and how's it coming along? Mine consists of sweet corn , cabbage , brussel sprouts, cauliflower, broccoli ,cucumbers, zucchini, peas, tomatoes , peppers , acorn squash, pumpkins, and assorted spices. The cold wet weather hasn't been very conducive to good growth so far for me. But with warmer weather in the forecast things should turn out. I hope those of you growing fair better.

Pulled out the few plants that were left in the garden. Made/canned some salsa with the last of the tomatoes and peppers. Rototilled the whole thing, officially done for the year, except for two trees full of very good apples.

Now all of the tomatillos are ripening all at once.  I made an experimental batch of enchilada sauce this morning from a recipe I found online. It turned out sweet with just enough spice using two garden salsa peppers.  I think it would be too spicy for most if I would have added all of the peppers called for. Super simple recipe.  The recipe as written only yields two pints so we’re going to ramp it up to a quadruple batch tomorrow using the rest of the tomatillos and some green heirloom tomatoes we put in the freezer.  The recipe says they can be used interchangeably.

I use those green bags too, Carpio. But for some reason the leeks last longer without them. No idea why, but they do. The green bags do seem to work the best for most other veggies

JB.     Go on-line.   DEBBIE MEYER has special green plastic bags just for storing fresh fruits and vegetables. They slow the ripening process.I use them and they work well.      CARPIO
