A couple of weeks ago I thought I had picked the last tomatoes of the season. I was wrong. Last weekend I was sure it would be the last. Wrong again. The tomatoes keep on coming. This will end soon, though, because the nighttime temperatures are really dropping. The sky was clear last night and the temperatures had the first big drop of the season, flirting with a first frost.
Surely, this basket will be the last of the season. Surely.
Who knew? Carrots can be albinos. I picked some carrots this week and was surprised by the light color of one of the carrots. Intrigued, I did a little research and found out that once in a while a recessive gene in carrots will result in an albino. I’ll let you know if it tastes any different.
I’ll end today with a round up of posts from the A Day in the Slow Life meme started a few weeks ago by Toni at Backyard Feast. So far, Laura from Modern Victory Garden and Heather at Heather’s Homemaking have added posts about a day in their sustainable lives. Enjoy.
