Hmmm. It's finally hitting me that the early fall-type weather that I've been loving so much is not the greatest for my vegetables. NOTHING is ripening. Last weekend I was bemoaning that everything was green and this week it is more of the same. I'm starting to worry.
|San Marzano tomatoes a-plenty... but they are all totally green|
|SO MANY cayenne peppers... if they'd ever turn red!|
But there's not much to do about it, so instead, Butch and I spent some time outside and made room for fall crops - beets, cauliflower, cabbage, and more fennel.
I've gotten some beets recently in our CSA subscription and have enjoyed roasting them for salad. So, for a few dollars I decided to buy two packets of seeds - Chioggia beets, which are a gorgeous red and pink stripe, and golden beets. I planted them where the spinach never really came to fruition, next to the second planting of Toscano kale:
A-a-and... that's all, folks! I wish there were more to report (and eat!). Hopefully there will be soon.
