There’s not much left to look at, but I’m glad we finally got out to finish harvesting everything. We;re out of yard waste bags though, so the real cleanup will have to wait a bit!

I’m going to have to figure out something else to do with these green tomatoes (I made hot dog relish with the others!) – maybe fried?

What was left of the basil and chard went right into a nice pasta casserole with mushrooms, red pepper, and bechamel sauce, with panko breadcrumbs and parmesan on top.

New on the needles: a cabled sweater out of Zen Yarn Garden superwash worsted. I started another sweater with this year awhile ago, but it didn’t really turn out. I’m hopeful for this one, I’m addicted to knitting it!

cables!

I have five projects on my desk right now – four sweaters and a shawl. Startitis much? I’ve been working out a sock pattern in my head that I want to cast on, too.

    I’ve ripened green tomatoes by putting them in a brown bag, single layer and leaving in a dark place. Check often.

    Roast them, hot oven a couple of hours with olive oil and a few herbs. Serve with goat cheese.

    I once had to move house before the tomato crop ripened, we picked them all and put them in a brown envelope with a banana and they ripened beautifully!

    I may need to cast about (ha! see what I did there?) for a support group for startitis sufferers. I count seven project bags around my chair each with yarn on the needles. On second thought, who wants a cure?
