Sundays with Sue

Many of you are still finishing the harvests of warm season edibles and this is what I meant by non-seasonal eating. I received a text from fellow Master Gardener Dandi, telling me that she still had Japanese eggplant and loads of peppers in her garden. I am sure many of you can say the same thing about other warm season vegetables especially if you have a bit more coastal influence or a very warm microclimate in your garden. Lucky you!
I am sure that still more treasures from the garden for this holiday came out of pantries, drying areas and freezers. Many gardeners do it all, utilizing all the garden has to offer throughout the year. Speaking of such, I have to tell you that a group of Master Gardeners became certified Master Food Preservers recently, meaning they can teach us about food preservation. I will have more to report in the upcoming weeks, and perhaps a website we can all go to.
As we approach the first week of December, I wish you a much energizing time outside. Have a good week.
