It's November in New England, the seasons of growing & harvesting are coming to an end..
Now is the time to be creative with what we have! This is where my passion for being a locavore becomes really difficult!!
I am still harvesting small amounts of kale here in my home garden, and a few cherry tomatoes, this morning I picked the last tomatillos from my plants. Last weekend friends came visiting who have a large garden & they brought me some potatoes.. & because they Know it would make me smile...some super-Hot- habaneros!
My breakfast was a wonderful combination of flavors & spices & I can say I've remained a solid locavore for another meal!
The meal consisted of Home fries, made with Susan's potatoes & onions- Great Job girl!! seasoned with Thyme & Nettles- Yes, Nettles! I AM an Herbalist remember! With a side of sauteed kale with tomatoes, tomatillos , & the amazing lil' habaneros...
I must say... being a Locavore, year-round, in New England can be a challenge.
But it is one I embrace!
Now that the growing season is slowing down, & my work on produce farms has ended, I will have more time to focus on using what I've bottled, dried, frozen and otherwise preserved! ...oh, & time to Blog about it!!
