My cabbage and snow peas are still alive and while I'm sure they will be producing in the next six weeks, they aren't just yet. Sadly, the tomatoes, peppers and potatoes were taken out by a couple of freezing nights. When I plant this garden next year, I'll be sure and heed the weather man's advice and cover them :-).
I absolutely love the idea of walking into the back yard and picking ingredients that will go into a beautiful fresh healthy salad.

Oh,one other thing that might be of interest. About three months ago, I quit using processed bottled dressing and began experimenting with flavored vinegars and olive oil, and I haven't looked back. There's a little olive oil and vinegar shop nearby and I have become a frequent shopper. My most recent vinegars are cinnamon-pear and pomegranate. Besides the obvious health benefits, another nice perk of having a variety of vinegars is that they add a nice elegance to every meal, and you can coordinate your salad dressing with the flavor of your entreé. You can be a gourmet, without being a gourmet :-)
Have a beautiful Sunday! ~Blessings, Janet
