I just realized its been nearly a month since my last post. Time really does go by fast. The past two days the sky has looked like November, with the kind of dark clouds that threaten snow is on the way.
Its been a "Ping-Pong" like guessing game for next winter's weather predictions. The weather channels are predicting a strong El Nino, bringing in a warmer winter. On the other side of the table, the Farmer's Almanac is predicting another cold and snowy winter. I'll come up with my own forecast by what the animals are telling me at the end of October. Lot's of hair growth on the horses and goat is usually a pretty good indication I better have my firewood stacked.
The garden was not at all what I'd hoped for this season, but I did manage to get some tomatoes, popcorn, yellow squash, green beans, lettuces, a great crop of garlic, and some miscellaneous herbs. The rest of it went to hell. I've resigned myself to putting in the past and moving on to other things.
So be it. ~A

I was in the mood for some fresh pasta sauce this weekend. Although tomatoes are not garden-fresh this time of year, with a little garlic and onion you can pretty much make anything taste "good enough."
Toss it all into a pan with some good olive oil...
