That is, harvesting everything which might not survive the predicted weekend weather, cold rain ending in wet snow and high winds.

The chard and tomatoes were the big picks, with hot peppers and celery being covered at night and left for a bit longer;  our Brussels sprouts will actually benefit from this weather.

The big surprise was an uninvited guest who rode in on a sprig of fennel:

But I was eying it too, so he got a ride back outside.  😉

Still trying to sauté my way out from under a mountain of wild mushrooms and failing, in that I keep bringing home every juicy bloom despite my bursting fridge.  Oh well, looks like mushrooms in every dinner ’till the frosts come!

Bummer.  😉

Tonight, black trumpets, carrots, celery, onions and fennel over a pesto tortellini steamed with lemon grass:

…finished with Asian accents of tamari and sesame oil.

‘Twas guuud!
