For years, my friends Mary Harding McCallion and Isis Melhado and I have been getting together in the fall to roast peppers. For this week’s garden post, I share a series of photos taken recently as we gathered for our annual Roast of the Peppers, with friendly participation from Mary’s husband Jochen Sieckmann (who helps out even though he’s not a fan of garlic and our method involves a lot of garlic). We’ve been tracking your gardens all summer–great photos on an almost weekly basis from growers across the region. Now, it’s harvest and clean-up-the-garden time. Keep the photos coming! Send them to me at firstname.lastname@example.org. For the rest of this post, I’m going to let the photos tell the story.
It starts with peppers, an open fire, and lots of garlic.
Part of the tradition is an al fresco meal. This year, Jochen made squash soup and we roasted some homegrown potatoes.
Remember: send me those harvest and garden clearing photos, or photos of harvest meals. email@example.com
