Thankfully, the tomatoes are finished

And safely roasted and frozen. 

 I used the last of the green-harvested, indoors-ripened tomatoes for this evening's dinner (a stir-fry with onions, peppers, garlic, lime juice, honey, and Gulf coast shrimp).  Quite nice.

I never envisioned that I'd be planting fall vegetables in the mountains of Western North Carolina this September, but here I am, transplanting, seeding, harvesting the last of the pole beans and yard-long beans.  To be sure, I planted scavenged tranplants last year when we returned from Quebec, and had a wonderful over-wintered spinach harvest last year.

Here's a photo of early March over-wintered spinach from last year.  I had many lovely harvests from this patch.
