Mostly Wordless Wednesday - This is the end, beautiful friend

Yes, it's The End. The times are a changing and there is no more.

My garden is officially dead. Sure there might be 3 or 4 more tomatoes I can pick in the coming days but who knows. I do have a few green peppers coming in and some Cubanale peppers. My jalapenos are still doing good but I haven't seen a new one in a while.

This is probably the last recipe I make with my tomatoes. I had a regular small beefsteak tomato, a yellow tomato and 3 roma/plum tomatoes so I made some salsa. I also got to use some fresh jalapenos in the recipe. I had some red onion, cilantro and lemon and the salsa was complete. It was delish.

Overall, I think I kicked some gardening ass this year. I had mutant squash and tons of tomatoes. I also had some random corn, lettuce, radishes, carrots and green onions. I learned a lot and know that the garden will be different next year. I am trying to convince Tom to make it bigger. And not because I want more stuff, I just need to space out the plants. Plus, I want to do more corn. I loved doing squash and cucumbers. I am also going to do more herbs but still haven't figured out where and how many.

But now Fall is coming and it's time to stay indoors, drink hot chocolate and keep warm with a fire. I can't tell you how excited I am for Fall!!

  2. Sorry to hear about the garden but Jim Morrison is HOT and I loved that part. If it makes you feel better, my cell drowned, so I'm in mourning as well.

  3. Every fall I'm excited for the holidays and end up just wishing the garden would go ahead and die! I'm starting to feel that feeling!

  4. Yum! That salsa looks so good. The last of our tomatoes were used up a couple of weeks ago.

  7. I have loved Jim Morrison ever since I was a teenager! I was so happy to see his photo here! I still feel sad that he is gone.
