Over the past few days, there have been a smattering of little odd jobs to be taken care of. Soon my days will be all about CORN. Or, TOMATOES. Or, GREEN BEANS. But for now, it's a little of this and a little of that. And it's been kind of nice.
We're still bringing in zucchini. I've made 36 loaves of bread (crazy much?) and want to make one more batch. I've also started chopping them for the freezer. They're then ready for Peanut Butter Vegetable Soup and Chicken and Zucchini Casserole on cold nights this winter.
That handful of garlic bulbs that didn't fit into your braids because of one reason or another? I like to chop them up in my mini chopper, cover them with olive oil and store them in the fridge. This way, they're at the ready come tomato sauce time. Just remember, storing it this way is a SHORT TERM solution. (Don't keep garlic in oil for more than a couple weeks due to the risk of botulism.)
Do you know about my love for beet hummus? Not only is it super tasty and gorgeous in color, but those beets are a good source of fiber, vitamin C and iron to boot.
Miriam is into week three of potty training. It's going pretty well. She still has 1-2 accidents a day and she still can't always tell us she has to go, but by setting her on the potty every half hour, we're catching almost everything. She's learned to hold it until she sits! Here's hoping that 5 or 6 more weeks of summer will seal the deal.
It's sunflower time! We've been cutting and selling sunflowers for about a week now. If you're local, come on out. There is a bunch with your name on it:-). The profits will be sent here.
In the midst of all these little odd jobs, we're also stopping to take time to enjoy the view. Don't forget to take some time to do that yourself this week. Okay? Promise? Okay, good :-).
