From today's garden

That big four-gallon bucket holds small green tomatoes for a friend to use.  She likes to make green tomato pickles.  I'm sure Jack Frost is casing the joint, so I'm glad somebody has a use for these.  there are turnips in the other big bucket, and small eggplants and peppers in the gallon ice cream buckets.  
I know I said recently that we are sick of ratatouille, but I hate to see the eggplants go to waste; ratatouille is the only low-calorie way I know to use them.

My next door neighbor just picked all the peppers in her garden last week and I got to enjoy a few of them. I made some stuffed peppers that were just wonderful. It's so nice to have a friend with a garden. I bet your friend is going to love seeing that bucket of green tomatoes. Some have had frost already here. But being in town we've not been hit yet. My roses are still blooming. Have a terrific Tuesday!

I don't have a garden but my son and his wife said the frost has just about got everything.
