about that harvest thing....

You know that today I am at 6 Mile Creek Winery Harvest Fest in Ithaca...YES!  People grow grapes and press awesome wine near my house!  I love this event...they really are picking and pressing, too...

BUT last week Bronwyn is like "trade ya pots for squash?  AND a lifetime supply of basil and the rest????" and it is like "OF COURSE!".

Steve and Bronwyn live on top of a big hill and this creek and waterfall is next to their house.  It is extraordinary that any human could be so lucky to live in such a pretty spot.

Back out on the hill top they grow a lot of stuff....
when I got home the lettuce and purple beans went into the fridge, the basil was later turned into pesto, which I think we will freeze, and then the various peppers and the rest covered every inch of counter we have.....suddenly we are calling our basement the ROOT CELLAR but some of the veggies needed using right away, and so I cooked a HUGE chili....I don't think I have ever made chili entirely from just picked items, OH GOODNESS yum :)
Have a great Saturday!

Just picked veggies have all the goodness still in them!!! They are the BEST!

Beautiful! I wish we could grow veggies like that.

We have a bumper crop of lovely grape tomatoes (the variety's literal translation is 'a bunch of grapes'). Love the fresh produce this time of year!

I am so jealous of this garden!!! The basil! The beets! Those tomatoes peeking over your shoulder. Ahhhhhh!
