I've been so busy today!
Oakley and I went for a walk this morning, and then I weeded some of the garden (I'm trying to find my tomato plants among the weeds!), I got two loads of laundry on the line and went for a quick dip in the pond...all before 9:00 am! Yay, ME!
I got cleaned up and ran up town to see my friend, Donna and take her some veggies from the garden, and then I went to the store to pick up just a couple of things.

This afternoon it's been SO hot...way too hot to be outside, I think.
So, I prepared the cabbage that I picked for the freezer (5 quarts worth),
cleaned up some green beans, chopped up some bread to dry for stuffing (bread was on super sale and I wanted to have some for bread pudding and stuffing this fall), I chopped up some more green peppers for the freezer (I've got about 14 cups in the freezer now!), and just took a blackberry cobbler out of the oven.

When D left for work this morning he wasn't feeling well, and after talking to him a few moments ago, he's still not well. *sad*
So, he's on his way home...looks like I might be having a burger and sweet corn (the first from the garden) by myself tonight. I'm sure he'll just want to go to bed when he gets home.

Wondering what the funky stuff is in the picture above?

It's SO yummy!
I've only ever had it raw, sliced with a little salt...but, I picked a half dozen of them this morning and that is too many for me to try and eat raw! I've found a recipe for a puree' that sounds pretty good, and I'm going to try and make that tomorrow...after I can my beets!

  1. You can use it in a stir fry. It tastes like water chestnuts. I also know that some people fry it. Never tried it that way though. Since it is related to cabbage you might want to try to freeze it too...
