Friend brought by enough for this one of Green Beans, Yellow Squash and Zuchinni
They are simmering
and googled about herbs in my green beans, said to add Basil and garlic, just did and smells
wonderful. Also small potatoe's my Laurie introduced me too
squash simmering and added a little cheese. Did fry 3 pieces of bacon to chop on beans and squash,
a real country lunch... Now wish I had corn bread but do not feel like making
it has been a long day when you get up at 4:30 and a quick trip to local small town. New York Times is waiting by my chair and afternoon will be reading time.
So welcome is the high 80's early morning but 90's now...
Going upstairs to storage room for ice cube trays. So much not growing this year
but I do have herbs and forgot to freeze them last year. Chop (after washing) my basil, thyme, dill, rosemary, mint
wash, chop, place in cubes, add water and freeze. Last Winter had not done and did not like using herbs from little cans at market
In the past would hang from rafters in shed or attic, no such rafters available in this cottage. The first
couple of years after moving back to the country did tie some together and hang from drying rack in the storage room. Sure smelled nice in that room. Might still do some that way if energy hangs around.
Have to grow turnip greens and gathering some large containers. At the store the size of leaves
are huge and I pick when really small (so good) They can be planted next month :)
It is wonderful to be able to cook and bake some. Last few years such flares of Sjogrens and arthritis, a couple of falls and times like I am experiencing I do not take for granted.
