Can you believe that Summer is here!
Our weather is getting hot,
so I was up at 6 this morning
and out turning on our drip-lines by 6:30.
Look at this . . .
Thistles are growing wild in the ditch across the road.
Now, we know that it is easy to
find beauty in a rose,
but look at these thistles gone to seed.
Aren't they pretty!
Can you see beauty in them?
When I went out to do the drip-lines
I also picked a large bowl of snap peas.
These are called Oregon Giant Snow Peas.
Snap Peas - Snow Peas
To-may-toe - To-mah-toe
After watching a You-Tube video
I blanched them . . .
Ice bathed them . . .
Dried them . . .
And put them in bags for the freezer.
I got four nice bags
and in a couple of days
I should get four more.
This "farm-girl" thing is new to me,
but thanks to You-Tube & my sweet sister-in-law
I'm learning so much :)
Well, now I'm going to practice my guitar
and enjoy more of this
fine first day of summer :)
