Today was a perfect day. I love Fall. I love my garden and I love the produce that just keeps coming all summer long. It will be hard to walk away before the last tomatoes are picked and enjoyed. Our days are numbered and I am savoring these times in the yard with the kids.
I made a pot of garden goodness this afternoon with the tomatoes and yellow squash. I just brown a pound of sausage with some onion, while simmering a pot full of cut up garden-ripe tomatoes. When the tomatoes are cooked down, I add the meat and then cut several squash into the pot. I season this with Italian seasonings and herbs from the garden. I love eating this with a slice of Havarti cheese melted over it. Yum!
We also picked some fruit from Farmer Ron’s orchard across the street. I miss him on days like today, but am grateful his orchard lives on, oblivious of the developers who would take the trees down and bring in more homes or apartments.
Today was perfect. My life is perfect. I am so grateful.
