Garden Enjoyment

I thought I would post a few pictures of things that are growing in our garden.

Green beans starting to set on the vine.  I will soon be able to pick some of these and enjoy them.

Our hot peppers.  They will taste so good in our homemade salsa.

Sweet banana peppers.  YUM!  Hubby and I have had to start watering our garden.  It is so dry here.  Forecast is calling for a chance of rain over the weekend.  We really need it.  Seems like no matter how much you water, it never does the garden as much good as rain from God does.  I think I forgot to tell everyone what a nice weekend we had here-very cool temperatures.  Two mornings when we got up the temperature was 43 degrees- then up to the lower 50’s, upper 50’s and today mid 60’s.  Daytime temperatures over the weekend were great-low to mid 70’s.  Starting Monday though its been back up to HOT-not near as hot as some places but hot for us.  96 degrees yesterday when Hubby came through Christiansburg.  Upper 80’s here on the farm. 

Last nights supper was grilled chicken, green beans, pasta salad and rolls.  I fixed everything on the grill so as not to heat the house up any more than it already was.  We ate outside at the picnic table.  It was really nice.  A little breeze was blowing which helped a lot .  Yesterday I got a recipe from my friend Vicki-applesauce pie.  I made it and thought it was really good.  I wanted to share it with you all.

2 eggs, 1 cup sugar, 2 tbsp flour, 1 tsp.ground nutmeg, 1 stick melted butter, 1 cup applesauce, 1 tsp vanilla.  Combine sugar, flour, and nutmeg.(You can use cinnamon instead or a little of both).  Beat eggs, add eggs to dry ingredients.    Gently combine butter applesauce and vanilla until mixed.  Pour into pie shell.  Bake at 350 for 45 min or until golden brown.   (I would recommend if your applesauce is sweet to cut down some on the sugar, I didn’t but Hubby thought it was a little too sweet.  I thought it was just fine.)

Enjoy your day and God bless.

Yummy!

If I were making a list of things that make me happy, this would definitely be one of them.  I feel so blessed when I go out in my garden and gather delicious food for my family to enjoy.  I know it sounds kinda way out there but it is true.  This evening’s supper will incorporate all these healthy veggies.  I’m just not sure how yet.  Maybe grilled chicken, grilled squash-I’m not sure but I know it will be good.  Today has been busy.  I’ve been trying to get some of the outside work done before it gets too hot.  After seeing the big snake yesterday evening, Hubby immediately started weed-eating.  I started mowing the yard.  We got about half finished before it got to late.  I finished mowing the yard early this morning.  I have been washing clothes and getting them on the line to dry.  They are probably already dry.  It is hot here but we have a really great breeze so it’s not so bad (especially in the shade).  I am going to work some more in the garden after lunch.  I need to tie the tomatoes, get rid of some nasty potatoes bugs.  It also needs to be weeded but I think I’ll save that for this evening.  The girls have been busy inside doing housework.  The ladies come tomorrow for bible study.

This is a picture of what we call the canning building.  The bottom is our cellar and on top we store all our empty cans, our canners and all our canning supplies.  When the girls were little, they started calling it the canning building and the name has just stuck. 

Well, I think it’s time to get some lunch going.  Enjoy your day and God bless.
