The garden is especially bountiful right now. These are the things that I brought in this weekend.
|Tomatoes, Peppers, Onions, Carrots, Corn, Cantaloupes & Kohlrabi|
We had our first fresh corn on the cob. I also made and canned pasta sauce using almost every ingredient from the garden, with the exception of celery. This is the recipe I use: http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/giada-de-laurentiis/simple-tomato-sauce-recipe3.html
L's cantaloupes are getting ripe! We've picked 5 so far, and they are delicious. We've never had luck with melons in the past.
Speaking of melons, I usually let the ladies clean out the watermelon rinds once I cut out the flesh.
They do a pretty good job.
I was gullible enough to have no such concerns, and I was duly surprised. We had a lovely time visiting with our friends and neighbors.
My mother gave us this tea set that my grandmother gave to my parents for THEIR 25th wedding anniversary.
The last thing that surprised me this weekend, was this little hummingbird that perched on the fence of my flower garden for about 15 minutes on Saturday morning.
