Hello everyone! I hope all is well in your life. I still do not have my computer back but I thought I would post a little update while I had access to a computer. The keyboard Dave ordered for Grace’s computer did not work so she is still using mine. Oh well, the things we do for our children!
We have been busy here. The garden is doing fairly well. We have had tons of rain though. We have been harvesting beets, cucumbers, carrots and such. We planted a new type of beet this year. They are called Chioggia beets or candy striped beets. They look like this http://www.rareseeds.com/chioggia-bassano-beet. They are really pretty. I will definitely be planted them again. I want to try out a new pickled beet recipe refrigerator pickled beets.
We picked blueberries last week. We made blueberry freezer jam using the pomona pectin. I really like using it. Thanks, Cheryl, for telling me about it. We also made homemade blueberry ice cream. So good!!!
I’m sure there is lots more going on around here but I just can’t seem to remember it all. That’s what happens I guess when I don’t do a post for a long time. I hope you all have a great Sunday and God bless.
Everything sounds delicious, Donna.. I always freeze a lot of beets as we love them
that way and hubby can’t have sugar for the pickled ones..
I have wanted to plant those but never got around to it.. Your season is quite a
bit ahead of ours..
Take care, dear..
So glad your garden is doing good. I wasn’t how everything would turn out with all the rain we have been getting. We need to get together soon. Maybe do a hike or something.
Glad to hear from you! My garden is doing well also. I am going to look into those beets. I imagine they would look pretty in a salad.
So happy to hear all is well. We so need the rain, but for now I will enjoy the heat as we never get to much. I ll just have to water my gardens. We are just beginning strawberry season here. So blueberries is about a month away.
Hello. I hope the keyboard thing gets figured out soon. smile It can be odd when you get used to fellowshiping here on the web and then it’s not as easy to do for whatever reason. smile Have a great day and enjoy your time elsewhere for a while. smile We miss you and look forward to your return. smile Sincerely, Mommy of two growing blessings & so much more!
