“At least you’ll never be a vegetable — even artichokes have hearts.” ” Without much of a hint of nostalgia, I pulled out the last of the tomatoes, peppers and zucchini last month. They were great while they lasted during the spring and summer, but like almost everything eventually, when they’re done, they’re done. Fortunately, the best is yet to come.
