The last foreseeable turkey

Tesoro Tierra is taking a temporary break from its operations. It’s for understandable family reasons, but it’s a great loss. Next week will be the last time at the South Austin Farmers’ Market, and we’ll pick up our last turkey. The other folks who bring eggs will purchase some of Tesoro’s equipment. Scott Arbor probably won’t be back to the market until Spring is a little closer, but is beginning to send out information by e-mail. Tony from P2 Organic, of course, will be there all winter long, no matter what, every Saturday. Those poblanos were just irresistible again today. I’m practically using an entire layer of them, chopped up, in every batch of cornbread these days. Maybe I’ll make a soup of some sort and use them in that, too. Yellow split peas? Maybe while cookies are baking. Leaves of Lilac Wonder tulips made their appearance overnight. The kitchen windows were open this morning until somebody revved up a whining electric leafblower somewhere nearby. The laundry’s drying outside. There are gulf fritillaries and zebra longwing butterflies darting about. What a wonderful time of year this is here in Austin, almost wonderful enough to make a person forget about summer.

    Dang! I’ll miss Tesoro Tierra.
