It's pepper season! The big ol' roasting tumblers have arrived at the Salida Farmers Market and the air is piquant with warm chile oils.

This morning in our farm share we got these beauties to go alongside the jalapeƱos from last week. Methinks tonight's supper has something to do with aubergine and peppers, wouldn't you agree?

Next Saturday, September, 19, I'll be hawking linocuts and handmade books at the market again, 8:00am-12:30pm. If today's weather is any indication, I might be having to do so in fleece and gloves, but it's all good.

This coming Tuesday the DM plays a gig at the D-Note in Arvada, so we'll be on the road for a couple of days. I'm ready for a little change of scenery, although suddenly our schedules have become full again and home sounds good, too. Hibernating time will come soon enough, I guess. Run like headless chickens until then. Go. Go. Go. (Squawk.)


  1. You're making me hungry!!! Hee-hee.

    Another great sketch. I love the quality of your lines, the confidence in your style.

    Maybe a big mug of hot cider would keep you warm at the market! Wish I could get there to see your wares in person.

  2. Let's see???? Aubergine and peppers? Eggplant and peppers? Is that right? Do you have a recipe? Just curious how you plan to prepare eggplant with jalapenos.

    Your pepper drawings are simply scrumptious. :-D


  3. Well, gastronomes, in the end we made a yummy vegetable stew because A) it was cold and rainy (snow in the high country) here yesterday and B) we have SO MANY vegetables from our share to use up. The recipe was from either the Moosewood or the Enchanted Broccoli Forest cookbook and we give it four thumbs up!
