Tomorrow is my garden club's "Harvest Fair." I was supposed to grow vegetables from seed, nurture them all summer, and have beautiful specimen heirloom tomatoes or butternut squash to show off and win prizes. I am not a good vegetable gardener.
Though mentally I am so "over" those hideous flowering quince, between work, vacations, school, kids and life, I still have not removed them from my garden.
In desperation, I went out this morning and harvested about 25 quince from the ugly shrubs.
It's really quite tasty. When it cools, I'm going to spread it on a cracker with some manchego cheese.
I'm still not keeping the shrubs, unless perhaps, I win a ribbon.
