The cold is one thing, but the biggest drawback to winter is the long night, which runs from 5:00pm one day until 8:00am the next. However, there is the often a glorious pre-sunrise view to take away the sting.
The frost Saturday night left Smith scrambling through the garden to harvest the last of our veggies. Everything you see in this pot was from our garden; tomatoes, garlic, onions, basil, and everything else (except the salt and olive oil).
This is Vicki's fabulous Roasted Tomato Sauce and it turned out deliciously. It is now in the freezer awaiting its turn to awaken in a pot of soup (or pasta) this winter.
