Ugh, we’re in for a sticky day here...it’s hot and windy outside already and I think there’s rain coming.
I was given some rhubarb by a client so I shared half with a staff member and stewed the rest.
It stewed up beautifully, a lovely bright red colour. I sweetened it just a bit with sugar. I have frozen it to make apple and rhubarb crumble or pies later.
Corn on the cob was out for .99c a cob so I grabbed 4 to pop in the freezer. Much better than corn which has been canned overseas.
I have discovered these little cans of sparkling water which taste like sparkling water but have a hint of lime. Very refreshing!
This morning, I made a banana, frozen blueberry (I froze several punnets that I got for $1.99 on special - they’re normally $3-5/punnet), medjool date, organic cacao, skim milk smoothie. Delicious!
That has got to be good for you!
Ominous clouds heralding a windy, dusty, muggy, messy day. There’ll be lots of sweeping to do later! Our lawns are looking lush - it’s amazing what working pop up sprinklers will do! We had several that were broken and the grass was dead in patches. We paid for a guy to come and repair them and hey presto! Green grass! If you stand there long enough, you can watch it growing!
I hope you are able to stay cool today, wherever you are. I can’t wait for the weekend - to set up that Vegepod! I have bought beetroot, strawberries, green peas and lebanese cucumbers. I realise the peas and cukes may take over but it’s all about learning what’s good and how long it takes from planting to harvest. I will also sow carrot seeds...
