Oops!! I did not know it should be a simmer.  I put the bag in a pot, start the heat and let it come to a boil and then turn down to medium heat.  Some day, I guess a bag will probably split on me.  Oh well.

Still pulling one mongo-sized carrot every week. Lasts me all week.
I was just wondering this morning how I should cover them for winter so I can continue pulling one a week. The greens are still tall and beautiful and the MM is still friable...but, it won't be long...

Rose, I planted all 4 packages of the different seeds that I had back in April.  They've never grown this big before but I've never let them stay in this long. So I'd have to say it's time and not variety here.  

But they were ....umm....
thinking
I'll have to go look in the Carrot Week 2017 thread...but one variety was Danvers 126.  Oh, and I never planted them in full sun before either until this year.

Got it ...the remaining 3 varieties were A-#1 Hybrid, Chateney and Scarlet Nantes.

Lunch: my cabbage, onions, and garlic in a Thai curry.
Dinner: Tetsukabuto squash! mashed, as part of late replica-Thanksgiving leftovers. A very nice squash with a flavor that is a little different from butternut, more chestnut-y. My family grew these for a year or two when I was young, and then couldn't find seeds. It's a hybrid between Curcubita maxima (likely a kabocha in this case, rather than a hubburd) and Curcubita moschata (butternut and others). The con of this type is that it won't pollinate itself, and needs another C. moschata or C. maxima plant in the garden to pollinate it. The pros are its flavor and it actually produces in my short season - in part because it has squash vine borer resistance from it's C. moschata parent.

Today is the 60th anniversary of the day when I moved with my family from England to Canada. I was 10 years old at the time. My Dad and an Uncle had already come to Canada six months earlier. I traveled with my Mother, Grandmother, Aunt and three cousins. It was long journey on a prop powered plane. We arrived first in Montreal before flying to Toronto the next day. To celebrate this 60th anniversary, Mrs TD made a delicious meal for the two of us. All the this to finally say that she included one of the SFG grown Canada Crookneck Squash and it was excellent.  Very Happy

Tonight we were eating delicious straight out the garden summer cabbage that was first cut in June then had the stalk cut in a cross to give four small cabbages .
 They have been lightly frosted and as a result they were fantastic .. slightly sweeter than normal & as soft as a wet NICE biscuit dipped in your coffee.

This is not really "eating from my garden" but I thought I would share it anyway. I am going to be try making French Onion Soup using the recipe "Authentic French Onion Soup courtesy of Julia Child" that I found at 

http://www.geniuskitchen.com/recipe/authentic-french-onion-soup-courtesy-of-julia-child-356428

I still have some small onions from the SFG so I may throw one of them into the recipe just to be able to say it is what I am eating from my garden today.

I've never made this before and I am no cook (well I may be a bit crazy) so let's see how I do. Hopefully, it will turn out to be delicious and will warm me up on this very cold day.

Well I am definitely no Julia Child when it comes to my abilities in the kitchen. However, the French Onion Soup turned out to be quite delicious. The original recipe said it was for 6 to 8 people so I cut it in half. Mrs TD will not go near the stuff although she did have a little taste. So this was all for me. I thought by cutting the quantities in half I would have enough for three or four bowls. The idea was that I would eat some today and store the rest for a future time. Maybe I am a pig but I only got about two bowls. As well I had to substitute a good brandy because I did not have any Cognac (which is a form of brandy anyway).

TD, can you share this in the food section? If there isn't a thread, make one. Julie Child's French Onion Soup.

I was about to give up on indoor gardening. My cucumber plant was headed for the compost, along with its powdery mildew, aphids, and fruit flies. Mad When I went to get it off the table, look what I found hanging down behind the edge by the window.
What are you eating from your garden today? - Page 25 Cuke310
Needless to say, all was forgiven. I chowed down on that cucumber (nice and crunchy), took the plant outside and gave it a good bath. Now I'm going to spray the heck out of it and bring it back in. I've learned several more lessons about veggie gardening in the house. I'll share them all in another thread.

I use a paintbrush, but I didn't even know that one was there. I must have pollinated it a long time ago, then it fell down behind the table and I didn't realize it. There it grew like Topsy. Very Happy

This will be tonight's vegetables:  Bok Choy--Toy Choy variety.
And harvested just in time because I could see little flower buds in the center.
