October is "Vegetarian Appreciation Month", which started in 1977.
You do NOT have to be a vegetarian or vegan to appreciate the flavor and beauty of vegetables.
I made a huge batch of Ratatouille the other day: Eggplant, tomatoes, sweet peppers, onion, and zucchini seasoned with dried Greek Oregano and Celery from the garden. A tiny bit of uncured bacon fat (1 tablespoon) in a 350 oven for 80 minutes until they were all melty.
So far we have received just under .6 tenths of an inch of rain from Rosa (6:30 Tuesday morning), and we are expecting more according to forecasts. It is welcome, but would prefer not damage!
I hope you use October and all months to appreciate all of the wonderful vegetables and other edibles you can grow in our desert gardens.
DON'T forget - your garlic -- get your cloves in the ground no later than October 31st for the best success possible for spring harvest.
Have a best day,
-- Catherine, The Herb Lady
