It’s funny how much I take simple things for granted, now that they’re gone until next summer. Take these peppers, for instance. Every shape, color and heat level. Have you seen the sorry bell peppers that are available in the grocery store right now? Makes me long for the days of this.
Dried corn makes a great decoration. We hung some on the front door this year instead of our normal kitschy autumn wreath.
Looking at this picture, I’m dying for a good salad.
I really learned to love beets this year, as long as they were roasted. Drizzled with a little honey and sprinkled with some coarse sea salt…yum.
I couldn’t get enough cauliflower this past summer, either. What I wouldn’t do for some local cauliflower right now.
The carrots were especially sweet this year, as well. I had an ongoing love affair with root vegetables.
What fruits or veggies are you missing the most right now?
