Last Salad 2008

I already shared my somewhat dismal, final greenhouse report for summer 2008. BUT, here are photos of this season’s crowning achievement.

last tomatoes and cucumbers

Which I turned into this:

last salad

It’s dressed with Newman’s Own Olive Oil and Vinegar. (Speaking of which, I’m so SAD Paul Newman passed away recently. Who doesn’t love Paul Newman? … seriously!)

While I’m being a bit geeky, I’ll also tell you that we had this lovely salad as part of our special Election Dinner the night we completed our mail-in ballots last week.

I told you how much I love to VOTE, and it’s totally easy to vote early in Colorado. So, we’ve already voted. Since I actually do like the community part of democracy, we made a little party out of it and celebrated our choices as a family.
