First Frost & Fried Green Tomatoes

Standard

The weather men keep announcing it in their cynical way: “The frost is coming”.

We have been enjoying some terrific fall weather with overnight temps perfect for snuggling and mornings with big comfy socks and warm mugs. I love this weather. It’s good for jeans and sweaters…It’s good to bust out your favorite boots…It’s good for working outside…But it’s not so good for all the remaining veggies in the garden. The freezing temps mean it’s time to gather up whatever remains of the garden before it is bitten and claimed by the frost.

We didn’t get the turn out we had hoped to get in our new garden thanks to some adorable but hungry pests and getting a late start but, aside from an abundance of cucumbers over the summer, we did get some good late fruits of labor from our tomatoes, broccoli, zucchini, squash and eggplant. We unearthed our carrots over the weekend and I have just finished rounding up the last of our tomatoes – several of which were still green. But that’s fine by me because I’m thinking fried green tomatoes will make a delicious accompaniment to our salmon tonight. 🙂

 

Freezing temps coming this week. Just snagged the last of our garden before the frost claims it. I'm thinking fried green tomatoes will go nicely with our salmon :)
