My daughter thinks...

...its Mr and Mrs Mallard family. After counting the ducks, I had to agree with her as you can find Mr. & Mrs Mallard + Jack, Kack, Lack, Mack, Nack, Ouack, Pack, and Quack :)

We tried our version of Fatteh with toasted pita, homemade hummus and yogurt seasoned with chilli powder, cumin powder and cilantro and it turned out quite tasty. Now, this will be frequent snack we may be looking forward to enjoy.

Frosty is back

Is the season over??

 With warm fall season we had, I still cann't believe the gardening season is over. I should have pulled all these plants and cleaned up before we had the Oct snow. I was waiting for the leaves to turn color and rake, before all those things happened we had the first snow storm. The support  provided for the vines was down with snow. The support stood all strong for Hurricane Irene but couldn't withstand the early snow.

Rescued bunch

Here are few pots which could stay in the basement for winter. Oregano in small pot is from this small survived plant. I hope they do well in the basement before seeing any sunshine next year. Other two pots are Mint and Jasmine (which never had any blooms so far).

Harvest Monday...

Eggplants are the best this year, I got 3 big ones last week. We haven't got the frost and I have small to medium sized ridge gourds on the vine which I am planning to get tomorrow so that they won't get affected by nighttime 30s which are expected this week. Please visit Daphnes Dandelions to see what everyone is harvested.

Preserving Tomatoes

I do some vegetable gardening but I don't grow a lot that I need to preserve it, but today while visiting Wilson Farm for grocery, I saw that they had locally grown tomatoes on SALE, so got them and dehydrated a bit in oven and made paste out of them for freezing. I also had to freeze some whole tomatoes for future use.
