Our harvest season keeps on going and going and going. We’ve had no freezing temperatures since covering up our favorite garden plants for the first frost nearly a month ago. There’s been summery harvest dinners, bags of lettuce and boxes of berries delivered to neighbors, and second chances to preserve more of our bounty.
In the fall we celebrate several birthdays in our home, giving us a lot of opportunities to smother special desserts with fresh raspberries. For my birthday, Dad carved stone weights for two new crock pots! When he says that our kitchen is alive, he’s not exaggerating. Between my fermenting veggies and kombucha, Dad’s bubbling country wines and bread, and Mom’s various food projects, there’s often a lot going on. Check out some scenes from our fall kitchen below:
