I don't know about your growing season but here in Washington State, the last few years have just been a flop. We haven't been able to get past the frost until almost June and then our Fall keeps starting earlier and earlier. Out of the 10 tomato plants I put in the ground this year, I've harvested one tomato and I have a handful of cherry tomatoes that look pretty darn green. The weather is already getting chilly and the rains are starting to visit and there just isn't much heat left to ripen my tomatoes. I went out and trimmed them up a few weeks ago, hoping to divert some of the nutrients towards more blossoms and lo and behold, I found plenty of new flowers today. So a friend of mine suggested making a little green house out of plastic wrap. I wrapped it around my tomato cages, hoping to accelerate the little bit of sun we have left. We'll see how it works.
In the meantime I have four little pumpkins growing so I'm looking forward to homegrown pumpkin pies during the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays this year.
So this week, due to all the birthdays and the eating out, I blew off my menu plan. I just got some basics since I have plenty of bread in the freezer and fruit and veggies in the crisper.
