The adventuresome life of a Great Pyrenees/Newfoundland dog in Northwestern Ontario

The balcony garden is looking delicious!

We haven't got any cucumbers yet. The blossoms have started to come on the Double Yield Cukes, though. With luck, we'll see some before the first frost, bol.

Hungarian Hot Peppers. Elizabeth picked these while they were still yellow last year, not realising that they would eventually turn red. They were fine that way, but she thinks they have a bit more heat when fully mature.

Last year, the Morden Midget Eggplants didn't do so well in the raised beds. Elizabeth thought that, like other aubergines she's grown, they might prefer the heat up on the balcony.  They're worth growing for the flowers alone!

And they are producing well up there, despite the cooler weather we’ve had. Elizabeth hopes to use some of these in a Jewish pastry recipe she loves.

And for those of you who have been sitting on the edge of your seats all week wondering if the turnips have grown any…

It looks like they are yummying up from my balcony view of them (in the middle raised bed) and the second crop of beets, peas and carrots are coming along too!

  1. it’s wonderful, I love the colors of your pepper. what kind of pastry will it be?

    • They are like mini calzones or big pierogies. The pastry is yoghourt based and the stuffing is a savoury mix of courgettes, aubergines and cheese.

      • has it a special name? I still ponder about a jewish meal for hanukkah :o)

      • Handrajos (Eggplant and Squash Pastries, Izmir Style). Elizabeth says her recipe is from Joyce Goldstein’s Sephardic Flavors cookbook. Handrajos, also known as borekas, are traditionally eaten at breakfast and this recipe was originally from the Sefarad Yemekleri (a Turkish Sephardic cookbook).
        Elizabeth really loves these pastries. She says they are absolutely delicious!
        My, two-leggers have such elaborate food traditions. I just get my cup of kibble morning noon and night…

      • i will look for this book, it’s alittle boring to make latkes&salmon every year (although that’s tasty lol) Thanks :o)

      • There are lots of other great recipes in the books too. Some of them get a bit complicated, though, Elizabeth says. But they are worth the effort!

      • I will give it a try, I love the jewish kitchen :o) Maybe once I’m able to make this gefilte fish :o)
