A few more peppers: some very sweet bells, mild yellow or green things. An onion and a garlic (another nice-looking unidentified hardneck; should we plant it too?); cilantro, savoy and plebeian cabbages. Beets with astounding greens. Mixed other greens, an acorn squash, big carrots and an eggplant. Spuds and sweet spuds. Another apple butter, now a staple of Junior’s fall breakfast routine. The track playing on the kitchen radio doesn’t require explanation, because it follows internet rule #272-C: if you can google it, I don’t need to cite.
The basket on the right is some of the season’s final backyard harvest (not pictured, a giant and very spicy arugula). That’s 10.7 lb of mostly-green tomatoes, a half-dozen cukes, a useful eggplant some miniature ones. And, a couple dozen jalapeños, which have since been poppered and happily consumed.
