Cool Color Sunday

Today was the official beginning of Autumn. Everyone takes a day-trip to the top of Grand Mesa to view the changing colors of the aspen and other deciduous flora. Archery season is over, black powder season is finished (?) and the main hunting season is almost upon us. I planned to have my tomatoes harvested by now, but the pumpkins are going to be finished before the 'maters turn red/orange/ it would be nice if they weren't quite so green. Because we had a late frost and everything that got started in May got clipped pretty good, I didn't put my plants out until June 5-8. I know . . . Fortunately, I like green tomatoes, fried, pickled, sliced, and am considering making green tomato sauce. My peppers did pretty well. Pablano, Banana, Cherry. Perhaps the green tomatoes could provide the base for a spicy green chile? This could be interesting. If any of you have done this, let me know. Or if you have any other suggestions. I have made green tomato pie, 2 varieties, and will try that again. I am having way too many green tomatoes to fry them all.

Well, it does a little, but not by that much First Day of Fall: Autumn Begins with the September Equinox

Welcome to DC, ekelly I have a recipe for a green tomato tart, similar to this (pardon the political comments, I'm just pointing out the recipe ): Just a blue girl in a red state with a green tomato tart (Everyday Citizen) HTH.

Sorry - I should have said "UN"- official. I awoke that particular morning to the smell and sight of fresh snow caps on the San Juans and just went into Fall panic. The Aspen have all changed above 7,000 feet, (another sign) and my pumpkins have all changed color - the geese are still hanging around, waiting for the final harvest of the feed corn and last hay cutting - they usually take off at first frost. Don't be alarmed if I declare that day the first day of Winter.
