goodbye garden

It's so depressing to finally be forced to clean up the garden, but the first snow storm of the season will do that to you. (Seriously, 12" in the Wasatch mountains on October 6?)

So, I stripped all of the oregano off the stems, cut the parsley tops, and plucked tarragon leaves. All of these are drying in the oven right now. I also picked about 12 more peppers, 2 zucchini, 3 small yellow squash, and 30-ish un-ripe tomatoes which are now layered between newspapers in a box in the pantry.

This weekend will be more pears (in some fashion), perhaps some dried tomatoes, something with those peppers (maybe more salsa?), and get busy with apples which should keep me busy for a few weekends.
