My Gardening Adventure: Guess What GREW While We've Been Traveling?!Sunday, May 25, 2014
Every time Hubs and I get back from one of our trips, the first thing I do is rush outside to take a peek at our garden. While we are away I always get someone to water it since rainstorms here are few and far between in the summertime. When we got home from our Miami trip I was shocked to see how much our little garden had grown!
Truly there is no better food than home grown veggies. I can't WAIT to harvest some of these for eating but I will also be trying my hand at canning this summer also. My mother, who is an expert at canning, has agreed to come out and teach me the art of preserving fresh produce. I'm thinking some pickles out of the cucumbers, roasted red peppers, salsa and marinara for sure! Oh, and did I mention that my apple tree at the lake house is FULL? I've decided to also make some apple jelly this summer! This "gardening adventure" is quite a fun and rewarding one...
