There has been harvesting, cooking, shelling, and preserving. Not near enough weeding, and no watering to speak of, but all the food I can keep up with nonetheless. Some things are winding down, but I'm still picking tomatoes, peppers, eggplant, lima beans, okra, raspberries, and squash. I've gathered and dried lemon balm, chocolate mint, Kentucky Colonel mint, lemon verbena, catnip and passionflower for teas. There's a batch of shiso, and one of tummy blend- lemon balm, peppermint and catnip being made into medicinal tinctures. A batch of nettle tincture was strained and bottled yesterday. I've been working on cleaning a batch of red sumac for zaater.
There have been walks with the dogs most every day.
Angel Face, has the most wonderful fragrance. We've been enjoying one on our kitchen table this week The color seems to have shifted to a redder hue since it first flowered.
My niece, Heather, has been telling me about Pinterest. While researching a new project this week, I came across a lovely blog that had a link. Oh my, I can see another way I could be easily sucked into computer time. So many wonderful things being shared there. Have a lovely day and a wonderful weekend, friends!
