I went out to the garden to pick everything yesterday because the weather has turned cold and nothing is turning ripe.
I was pleasantly surprised. We had oodles of green tomatoes, far more than I had thought, but there were actually some ripe ones. Also two huge surprise cucumbers and one tiny pepper, both hidden by the massive tomato vines.
The ripe tomatoes, cucumber, and pepper, along with some garden basil and a pantry onion, soaked in a vinegar-water-salt brine all afternoon, made a very nice accompaniment to dinner.
