Glad to be able to stay home today. Cleaned house and organized piles here and there. It still has not frosted inside the greenhouse, so there is still quite a bit of food out there. I found zucchini, cucumbers, and more tomatoes today. We had fresh salsa with a jalapeno and green chili which were still left over from my previous picking. I think I will pick about 30 lbs of orange tomatoes tomorrow. On top of that, the lettuce is starting to size up, the turnips are large enough to eat, and I have carrots and a few beets. So, after a big stir fry tonight, I think I will make a large salad tomorrow :). Time to attack a pumpkin for pies on Thursday. I have several pumpkins left and this one was one of the biggest. The chickens will get the insides and I roasted the seeds for a great snack. I have set the chunks inside down in the steamer and heated them until they were soft. Will render the orange flesh in the morning and freeze what I don't need for two pies.
