Last night I picked first ear of corn and cooked it immediately. It was so sweet and delicious. Fresh corn is a rare treat here. Grocery stores have such pre-cooked and vacuum packed corn, which is edible, but not a delicacy.




Tomatoes outdoors are still ripening even the weather is cool and rainy. I picked most of the ripe ones last night and made six quarts of salsa. This is now third batch and may be the last one this year, because we still have canned salsa from year ago. I will make just regular tomato sauce from the remaining tomatoes.

Fall is in the air and season 2022 is ending soon.

Garlic has been planted week ago, but leaves had not yet fallen, so I need to go back and mulch the bed. I have still carrots, leeks and kale in ground there, so some harvesting should also be done before winter arrives. Moose hunting season started and DH is hunting every weekend, so we may have to take a day off during work week to drive out to the country and do the last gardening stuff.

In the city frosts had not yet killed my outdoor tomato vines, but they started to look quite sad, so it was time to pick all remaining fruits and cut the plants to compost.

There is still some canning to do when all of the green ones start ripening.

This has again been quite good tomato season, even there was some challenges with pests, weather and botrytis, but that is part of the game.

November here is typically cold, grey and wet. Currently it is a bit warmer than normal but it means that it is also rainy, because without cloud cover the nights would be freezing cold and the low hanging sun would not warm the days much. It did not rain on Saturday and my DH did not go moose hunting, so we drove out to the country. We made stop at the woods to pick funnel chanterelles before going to do the last harvest at the vegetable plot. I lifted all leeks, remaining carrots and beets and picked a bag full of kale leaves.

I also had time to cover the garlic bed with old hay and leaves before the sun set around 4 pm. Winter can now come.
