It was just a week and a half ago that I last updated on the garden (here), but so much has changed in the last week and a half with the heat. Things are coming in! Greens, herbs, zucchini, peas, cucumbers and I think tomorrow will be the first day of green bean harvest. Most things are coming along, except the peppers look so drab...just not enough heat for them.
Today I gave my kids a day 'off' from school (we school year round) and decided I'd just do food prep. It's been a while since I've done that. Although the whole plan sort of backfired because the kids were hovering around me, almost as if they were craving school! Although I kept trying to shoo them away, they did end up helping me with some.
A day's work of food prep:
6 loaves of bread,
Made a gallon of applesauce (organic apples were storebought at $1 a bag).
Made a gallon of jam and froze 35 cups of rhubarb.
