It is sunny and the perfect temperature today. I am giving my friends the rest of my basil. I just can't bear to do anymore with it. It has been wonderfu, though and my freezer is stuffed and ready to produce summer in winter now.
The fall squashes are appearing. Last night I mixed a delicata with an acorn, added a little butter and oh my, what wonderful stuff; sweet, spicey, almost a touch of lemon, but I had added nothing. I had some plain Earl Grey with supper and the two were just perfect together. I saw some of the huge hubbards and remember how my grandmother "peeled" them by dropping them on the sidewalk until they broke enough to fit the pieces in the oven. She did a lot of creative things
