I'm Ready For You Mr. Frost

A frost and probably snow is coming to the Front Range and I'm ready!  I got all the tender bits  harvested and the whole plants covered, because they may have a chance when the weather turns warm again, as predicted.  Below are all the things I've been working on from the garden, in the kitchen.  I will go through them quickly, as I am knackered.....

Herbs of all sorts; sorrel, thai basil, basil, lovage, fennel, hamburg parsley, parsley.  Those and a few other things like green onions and celery.

 Tomatoes of all sizes, shapes, colours, ripeness.  Tomatillos and cukes too!

Jalapenos, Thai chilis - red and green.  Pumpkins, onions and a few green beans.

I am trying the salt layer method of preserving some of the Thai basil.  Lovely chicken stock from all the garden goodies.  A few Zinnias got to come in too.

Carrots!  Cake anyone?  Also pictured is lovage and hamburg parsley, I will do a feature on those two soon!  

More flowers!

Tomorrow will be the habanero hop hot sauce recipe I promised.
