Week of Abundance
What a week of abundant overflow! This is our first Watermelon we have harvested. I have 2 more on the vine.
We bartered tomatoes and Swiss Chard for 15 pounds of organic pears from Healdsburg.
We made Pear Butter, Spiced whole pears and Pear halves in a light syrup.
One neighbor has beautiful grapes in three varieties that she shared with us.
I am house siting for another neighbor…who’s tomatoes decided to kick into full gear while she was away.
So we made some Heirloom Tomato Salsa
Our garden is still producing full force…yes zucchini…I have to hide them now my family can’t look at another one. This week I made Ratatouille…
Harvested and now drying/curing my red torpedo onions. They did not get as big as I would have liked…our 4 month old puppy thought this was the best bed to play in…
The herbs are flourishing and I am cutting and using and also drying them. I have them hanging all over in the garage.
I did some major clean up this week …seems a little depressing now after all the wonderful greenery. Front yard…ready for fall plantings…which I have sprouted
I have so many beans in the freezer it wont close so the rest of the beans on the teepee will be saved for seed for next year and seed exchange at the local grange.
Sunflowers all gone…til next year…Still have a few in the backyard.
I love my world here. I love my family and I am so blessed for this reality.
