Here are a few shots of some veggies fresh from the garden. The frost is still only threatening, so we're sure to have a few more meals on the table right from the garden.
A little veg. A little dip. Yummy.
Once the frost comes, there will still be plenty of colder crops left, like the kale below. We have three kale patches, though we recently turned out the new piglets into one of them. They like fresh veggies just as much as we do!
There are still plenty of squash to bring in. We have some heirloom varieties of winter squash that are weighing in at over 30 pounds! They are much too large for the basket below...My favorite, though, is butternut.
And of course, let's not forget the homemade stuffed pizza!

This is the largest ear of corn that I have ever seen!
There is indeed something to be said for heirloom seeds...
And oh the taste!

There is absolutely nothing more soul-affirming than eating the fruits of one's (or in this case, many people's) labor.
Though the photo is from a warmer time, this meal can always warm up a chilly body on a frosty Winter's afternoon.
Cook the sausage. Drain. Add the potatoes. Add salsa. Move to edges of pan and drop in some eggs. Season to taste (hot hot hot!) with hot sauces.
Note: You really do need to use cast iron and wood heat. It just tastes better that way.
