Gathering And Preserving.

The weather has been cool and so I have taken full advantage of the lower temps by picking and canning from my garden.
Yesterday I roasted tomatoes for sauce, pickled beets and stewed Cowboy Candy (candied jalapeños).

Also, my white corn is ready. It was deliciously sweet. I still can't believe how easy corn is to grow and how much joy my few stalks have brought to the garden.


Today I tried something new: Salsa Verde (tomatillo salsa). I've never thought to grow tomatillos before but they grow prolifically in this microclimate and so I'll continue to plant them in years to come. The salsa is tasty, it won't last long here at The Hut.
