Another post where I talk about food and gardening. Someday there will be more to life. :-)
We woke up this morning to see a very thick frost outside. We were expecting it but it is still always a little bittersweet. Outside our bedroom window there were icicles hanging from the oak leaves because the sprinkler system was running during the cold of the early morning. I forgot my poor geranium out on the deck. I tried to cover my tomatoes and peppers and Aaron's watermelon and that worked for some of them but some parts of the tarps blew off and so we had some poor frost bitten tomatoes.
I am attempting making vinegar. The instructions seem pretty simple. I am wondering if it will really work. Obviously I am not making very much this first time. I would like to know how to make it as then that would be one more thing we wouldn't need to buy. Have any of you ever made it?
Today I made some yummy "Cracker Jack" popcorn. Just mix together 1/2 cup melted butter and 1/2 cup honey and pour over 3 to 4 quarts of popcorn. Brown in a 350 degree oven.
We have been enjoying the lovely sunflowers in our garden. We brought some in before the frost but these actually survived fairly well. We will see how they do after tonight's frost.
We do actually have more to life than food and gardening but once and a while lately it doesn't seem like it. Are you busy with harvest too?
