Gas Pains

Tom grew up in Milwaukee, bartended in Wauwatosa in the '70s and moved here in 1984.

Commentary, observations and musings about the outdoors, life in general and maybe Tosa politics and personalities will be the order of the day. He savors a lively debate as much as terrific cooking.

Finally got hammered with a hard frost the other evening.  The tomatoes are kaput.

Japh and I salvaged as many of the fruits as possible, uprooted the plants and hauled everything over to the compost pile.

It's sort of a bittersweet reminder that summer is behind and the transition to winter begins.  I can't believe how quickly the summer growing season flashed-by.

We harvested the remaining potatoes this weekend - roughly three bushels of Kennebec beauties.  All that remains is a half-row of red cabbages. 

Cabbage anyone?
