Summertime produce

So now that it’s cold and wintry, how about we think back to when it was 90+ degrees every day. (And dread its return… in May.)

Our first box of NM chilies!

Roasting them.

Grandpa helped us peel them. Said it was his first time ever wearing latex gloves and his first time peeling chiles. May I be as adventurous and willing to pitch in to help when I’m 91! He really did speed up the process.

The only thing that did really well in the garden was the tomatillos. Actually, everything grew really well, it’s just that something also ate everything really well. The tomatillos were so plentiful that even with our resident rodent(s) we were able to get plenty to make salsa numerous times, and a nice big batch of enchilada sauce to freeze at the end of the season.

Yum!

I don’t have any pictures, but I ended up drying most of the tomatoes that the animals didn’t eat. They’re really delicious dried. Even Ken likes them!

I got a Burpee seed catalog in the mail the other day, so I’m already scheming about next year’s garden. Number 1 on the list: Better rodent protection. The plan is to make a second, larger terrace in a few months, so I’ll have over double the garden space to protect.
