I spent the day harvesting some of the last vegetables from the garden and photographing them. As this was happening I prepared jars for preserving, had pots of salsa verde and apple sauce on the stove, and packed several jars full of herbed salt. It was a busy day of multi-tasking, but I don’t mind. This is some of my favourite work.
Speaking of photography: This coming Saturday I will be giving a short presentation on photographing food at the Blissdom Canada conference. Will you be attending? Please don’t hesitate to say hi if you are. Few people realize that while I love to talk and give presentations, I am crippled by shyness at conference parties and “mixers.” I can not mingle or work a room to save my life!
These aren’t the last of the tomato harvest, but it is getting very close.
This tomatillo didn’t have a chance to grow into its husk fully. It’s like a floppy, balloon-like bladder.
These green tomatillos from my garden have been made into salsa verde and are in jars.
‘Mini Chocolate Bell’ peppers from my garden. So adorable!
