Fall in Houston (sort of)

I've planted more in the fall garden. The beans, corn, carrots, tomatoes and a little bit of the quinoa have come up. I pulled up the summer okra and cut off the heads to let them dry for seed saving. Still have one jalapeno plant out there just to see what it does and how long it produces. Planted some yellow potatoes and red potatoes today. Broccoli, cauliflower and Brussels sprouts next weekend. Right now the garden looks so barren but it will be lush again in about a month.

Ran out of Hurricane Jam last week so bought 4 lb. strawberries, harvested pomegranets and lemons from the trees in the yard, and used up the last of the candied ginger in the pantry and made a new batch. Recipe is on Sept. 27, 2008 blog. I invented the recipe last year using whatever was on hand after Hurricane Ike.
