Little Froggy and I headed out early Saturday morning to feed the chickens and goats. We also checked the garden and there were several cucumbers that needed picking , so I picked and he put them in the basket. He was so proud of our harvest , even though the basket was a little heavy , he toted it all way back to the house.
Once we were in the house , he held up a cucumber and said " eat ". I peeled him a cucumber and put him a little ranch dressing on the side and he ate it for breakfast , but he also wanted a bowl of cereal after his breakfast appetizer (LOL).
I tried making the blackberry/red clover yesterday and failed again , let it cook to long (sigh). But I haven't give up yet , so I harvested more red clover this morning. I'll infuse the clover tonight and try again tomorrow , this time I'm going to use the " Ball Blue Book " method. I made the lemon balm / tarragon vinegar and it's infusing on the window sill.
This was yesterday's harvest , we finally harvested some descent looking zucchini. The first 3 or 4 zucchini turned yellow at about 3 inches long , it's been so hot and dry here. I've been watering them a little and they're doing better now. Hopefully we will get some rain this week , storms are fore casted for today. I made a salad with the leaf lettuce , mixed it with some iceberg lettuce and cucumbers for supper last night , it sure was good. What a joy to have all these fresh veggies to munch on.
How was your weekend ?
