When I uploaded my photos recently I noticed that I had a lot of food pictures.....so that's what you're getting! I've been sick for the last week, just a nasty cold, but it's been rather unpleasant. I made a new batch of elderberry syrup as soon as I felt my syptoms coming on.
E picked all of our tomatoes in anticipation of a frost a couple of weeks ago and then spent about an hour playing with them at the table......the big brandywines were the mothers of the little green cherries. :) The ripe ones made it into a yummy fresh tomato and basil soup.
We cleaned out the garden of the big squash, watermelon, and cantaloupe vines and hidden under the squash leaves were all these carrots growing! I had no idea so many had survived. Our squash were little transplants that a friend had given us and I planted them in our carrot bed because hardly any carrots had come up and I figured, why waste the space! So now we have a big bag of garden carrots in the fridge, and they're yummy!
And nettle infusion.....so nourishing! I've been drinking this lately to help me with a bit more energy after being sick all week. I'm ready to branch out into some other herbal infusions, I'm planning a few to try with my next order of elderberries since I just used up the last of what I bought last winter.
