 I am in Wyoming and the only thing in season here is the WIND!  We have already had snows and are expecting another round tomorrow'ish.  My garden has been finished for awhile now...we just harvested the rest of the turnips last week.  I am growing lettuce in a windowsill though and I also have some herbs growing.

We will now be eating the food I put up over the summer and supplementing it with stuff from the store.

Locally? Nothing. I'm in mn we have already had some snow, though it didn't stick. Some apples and squash are around but it's the tail end if it.

Locally as much as possible. The other night I made a super yummy dish I saw on a friend post. Zucchini, summer squash and tomatoes sliced like you would for rattitouli, covered in olive oil, fresh basil, oregano and rosemary, layered in a baking dish, sprinkled with sea salt and pepper, with fresh grated asiago and parm. Holy cow was it good! 

Served it with free range baked chicken and homemade sourdough French baguette garlic bread. ;)

Squash, squash, and other types of squash. Lol. My co-op basket had kale, bell pepper (tiny ones), acorn squash, turnips, and pale beets, honeydew, grapefruit, heirloom tomatoes, and cucumbers.

I have only used the kale, squash, cucumber so far.

Squash and apples, we have both for a few dishes this week. I want tree nuts to do something with, but they are so expensive. I will still buy some for next week, though.

what are tree nuts?  Are they the same as pine nuts?  I love pine nuts...and they are very expensive.
