Fall Projects

Fall has hit hard here in Northern Minnesota, the leaves are changing the frost came and my tomatoes did not get red. I had to pick them all after a freeze the other night killed off the plants and was searching around the Internet for something to do with this many green tomatoes.
I found this recipe for green tomato pickles and thought I should try it.
Here is the mixed veggies before canning.

The finished product, since I have not tried them I can't tell you if they are good. I'm not likely to either for a bit because I need to get the vinegar smell out of my nose first.
I have been knitting too, this is a cowl I started with a stitch pattern from one of my books. I wish the color of the yarn showed up better in this picture, it is more black with just hints of green in it. I dyed it myself but it does not have a name. The cowl looks like it will be reversible.
I may decide to post a pattern if you all would like. Maybe once its done and has a proper photo shoot. I have other things to show you but blogger is not letting me upload anymore pictures today. I'll have to save them for another day. What are you working on?

The pickles look and sound delicious. I know what you mean about the vinegar smell, though.

Oh, I hear you on the whole green tomatoes thing. I feel like I got cheated out of all the red ones. Oh well, there's always next year! Can't wait to see your finished cowl, and to hear how the pickled green tomatoes taste!
