Colorado Color along the Front Range slowly arrives. This is an odd shaped photo only because I took it out of window at an angle. But what a view early in the morning while the dew lingers, making the pasture damp.
Wednesday Jen I made salsa from our tomatoes. We began with 15 pounds of tomatoes thatI weighted out the night before so that we knew how many batches we would have. We used all of the tomatoes for 3 batches of mild, hot, and hotter. Batch one had no jalapeños, batch two had jalapeños that Jen purchased at Sprouts, and batch three had jalapeños that I purchased at the regular supermarket. Batch three was the hottest. Pretty tastily. We didn't make nearly enough because everyone loves the homemade salsa, I will take the last of the tomatoes over next this week to finish up this year's tomato crop, the best the Garden Spot has produced.
When the cooking was done, I was served tea by a very sweet little hostess. A great ending to a a great day.
Today we have very chilly weather. I put on the gas fireplace early this morning as I drank my morning coffee. I do love these cloudy, chilly fall days. We had rain last night and while the garden beds needed the moisture, our cut hay did not. Hay this year has been a total loss with both cuttings ruined by rain. The Head Gardener is pretty upset about the loss, but there is not much we can do about it.
My days fly by now with a job. I have to say that I am enjoying the students immensely and I love seeing my friends, and making a difference. None the less, a job does cut into fun time, doesn't it?
I hope you are well. Thanks for visiting. Have a wonderful week.
