11/18/2004: "winter landscape"
In winter, prices of most of vegetables go up. But right now, it seems to be a shortage of tomatoes and peppers. One little green pepper cost me 2 dollars! Tomatoes are more than double in price, too. At least there's plenty of pumpkin and sweet potatoes. Today's sweet potatoes made really nice salad. And the weather is pretty mild this week, although many trees already lost their leaves in the East River Park; it's already looking pretty much like winter.
More flowers for my window; I went to the Union Square market this morning and picked up three little pots of mums. They brighten up the room.
