Produce (the noun)

One small, country woman boast. Have made pasta sauce with home-grown tomatoes, garlic, basil and oregano -- and desserts of peaches, stewed, fresh, or baked. With own peaches. Our tree is so laden, branches are dragging on the ground. And the fruit has so much more flavour than the tinned stuff.

Can you tell this is all new and exciting for me? We also have a pair of rails mating in our garden. Would love a little rail family.

Wow, what a fabulous harvest of tomatoes!! I am waiting until mid November to plant mine because we could still get a frost. Even December is not too late!! This year I am planting tomatoes and zucchini and I am sharing Tasmanian purple garlic with my next door neighbour.
I hope you have a little rail family too!!

How wonderful, Barb. The tomatoes look amazing!! There is nothing like a pasta sauce with fresh from the vine tomatoes.

Look forward to following the 'rail family' on your blog:)

Can't imagine frost in Novemeber,
2paw, although it is still beautifully cool here, especially in the mornings and evenings -- cool for the tropics, that is. I love the sound of your Tasmanian purple garlic.
I found fresh garlic straight out of the ground has amazing flavour.

Aw a little rail family sounds lovely. We've had a couple of baby curlews and it looks like the parents are nesting again so perhaps we'll get some more this season :-)
