How did we end up here? We've lived in Northern Illinois for 23 years. Way too long for this vegetarian! Thankfully, we're only a Metra ride away from Chicago.

Homegrown pumpkins

First things first, Bears 3-0. Go Bears!

My gardening season is winding down for the year. We headed over yesterday to pick our pumpkins.

We netted 9 "carveable" pumpkins and 6 cute miniature pumpkins. I was off to a rocky start but I was pleased with how much I was able to reap from the small plot I had. I harvested about 100 tomatoes off 4 plants and 25 jalepenos off 3 plants. I'm hoping next year I can get myself organized to grow a complete salsa garden by using container gardening in my backyard.
