She's proud of her first crop of carrots
With the recent rains, our gardens have grown leaps and bounds. It's getting to the time that the canners will have to come out of storage, jars will need to be washed, flats and rings sterilized, and the cellar shelves filled. The supper table is set with plenty of squash, cucumbers, onions, tomatoes, taters, cabbage, corn (thanks, Papal - ours isn't ready), and CARROTS! We were just going to thin the patch, but came out with a bunch to eat that evening. Honey glazed with butter - yummoo! Little girl LOVES them. As tempting as it iwas to pick beans, there aren't enough for the first mess, yet. That should happen next week - double yummooo!
Grapes of Hur...
Though they aren't very big nor plentiful this year, the new grapes are growing better than we'd hoped for their first year. Sheep manure works wonders! Sorry if the word manure is too graphic for you, but it's a fact of life and totally organic. That's GREEN nowadays, don't you know?!
