No Joe the Salesman today. He must
have read the weather report. Top Chef, a new
TV series, had demonstrations and gave out
free video games.

Decorative peppers.

Decorative Gandhi.

Union Square celebrated its 10th anniversary last
Thursday night as a National Historic Landmark.

Time for stews and chili.

Prep work for Joe the Salesman.
Doubt that his taxes will go up.

Last Saturday for Corn. They say there may be some for
Wednesday but not next weekend.

Heirlooms down to $3.85 a pound.
Their flavor is what a real tomato should
taste like.

They were giving away copies of a new magazine:
Edible Manhattan.
An interesting read.

Nice Cornucopia-type feel.

It is October and time for Octoberfest.
Sam Adams sells a tasty version.
The beer is defined as having four malts: Munich, Harrington,
Moravian and Crystal. A
Märzen style beer. According to
Wikipedia, the beer was often kept in the cellar until late in the summer, and remaining
bottles were served at the Oktoberfest. In order to last so long, either
the original gravity and alcohol were increased or the hopping was strengthened.

Nice brisk fall day. Corn should be around until
past Columbus Day. Just ate some. This year was
a great one for corn, tomatoes too.

Decorative gourds.

"Five for one, twenty for five.
Give some to your friends"

Orange Cauliflower.


Great comment in Mr. Parker's site from Foodie
about Hawaiian Road signs. Nene crossing, quite
appropriate for crosswords.
