And in October.
Summer squash is a garden staple in the Ozarks – but summer squash into October and even November surely speaks of unusual weather.
With the weather forecast holding on to these mild temps it’s looking good and the single plant should give us 6 to 12 more squashes.
The first summer squash of the fall garden. Picked yesterday afternoon it went straight to the kitchen and straight to the skillet. It made a great afternoon snack for two people.
Eighteen big slices.
Dipped in local free range egg then whole wheat flour and cornmeal.
Simmered in hot coconut oil till crisp and tender.
Salt and pepper is de rigueur for southern fried vegetables, and i often enjoy them with Miracle Whip and horseradish.
Lemon Drop peppers are really coming in by the handfuls every day. They are going to make some fine and beautiful hot pepper jam. Tomatoes from Mary Badiny – some of the last I understand.
I planted the cold frames this afternoon with a couple cabbages, some more Pak Choy, carrots, Siberian kale and a mess of leaf lettuce.
Do you have a fall garden and if so what is in it?
