country n news-fall harvest

each fall these flame sumacs provides us with
nice bright vivid fall colors
this year they seem to really stand out here in our driveway
and also throughout the hill country along roads and
in pastures
its a great native tree that provides great fall color
blooms that bees go crazy over
seeds for birds throughout the winter
its easy to transplant

yesterday i said to my wife she
i want to start to stir fry since i had never done it before
so we had some asian greens in our garden ready to harvest
so i googled stir fry asian green
on epicurious i got directions on how to do it
so out to my garden i went with my knife and container
i trimmed these items from my fall garden from lft to rt
multiplying onions from my dads garden ive had them for 30 years
half an asian green
a few leaves of dinosaur or tuscan kale
a few leaves of swiss chard the plant that keeps on giving
a must have fall winter plant
i added a few mushrooms a few slices of squash along with
a few cuts of bell peppers
from my last years fall winter garden several cloves of crushed
organicgreen doctors garlic
also added were one diced poblano from this falls crop

3 tbsps of olive oil was heated to smoking
then the garlic and peppers were cooked for a minute
all the other ingredients were cooked
stir frying them frequently for 4 minutes
adding a sprinkling of salt and crushed pepper

then this was placed on top of brown rice
cooked with veggie broth

well a damn good supper my wife she and i had that night
mostly from our fall garden
also from this falls crop are these tomatoes that we
had wrapped after they were picked green right before the
first frost
this absolutely delicious mouth watering
country n pecan pie made fresh by my wife she
yes we well mostly she shelled them ourselves
as well as picked them off the ground
topped our slices witl good ole disease free blue bell vanilla ice cream

makes all the work to get this stuff to grow
well worth it
