End of Summer Harvest Dinner


Though fall doesn't officially start until Sept. 20, it feels like summer is over.

The kids are back in school; no more wearing white pants after Labor Day (though you know I will!); the days are getting shorter and the nights are getting cooler.

My tomatoes are still going crazy, as well as the eggplant and zucchini for another few weeks.


I made a nice dinner to celebrate the end of the summer harvest with the last of our green beans, an onion tart from our onions, a pasta with our beautiful heirloom tomatoes, some fresh figs w/ burrata and mint, some crostini and some nice chilled wine.



We are planting some fall crops, more spinach and some more beets in the Militant Community Garden, why not?


It ain't over, till it's over.

Isn't that an antique Sweetie Soda bottle from Philadelphia? I collect old bottles and that's a cool one!

Your garden results are so inspiring. A truly delicious looking spread! The onion tart looks scrumptious. Glad you're planting more in the militant garden, enjoyed the stories!

Looks AMAZING!! What is the char on the green beans? Did you blanch and then finish on the grill?

Figs and Burrata - two of my favorites!!!
