the last harvest

Although I love the changing of the seasons, this point of fall is certainly not my favorite time of year. It’s that time of year when all good things like the garden must come to an end. Not to mention the dreaded four letter word that starts with an s and ends with w is in the forecast this week. Yikes. I made my last garden harvest this afternoon. There is still a speck of broccoli and kale but everything else is pretty much done. 

Thank you little garden of mine. The last of the onions, tomatillos, fennel, and swiss chard. I feel like this last bit deserves to be made into something special, we'll see what I come up with tomorrow! Fast forward below I had to add in this quiche made from my garden goodies. I still need to do something with the tomatillos. And since I had some extra dough I of course whipped up a little fresh apple pie!

Mom’s lovely cottage carrots! Part of her last harvest at the cottage garden. I love how the carrots and the fall leaves in the back compliment each other. My guess is that mom sent these carrots for a swim in the crock pot!
