Hi Friends! It is July already! The summer solstice has come and gone, with a night so bright I could hardly sleep, outside and staring at the moon.
We are having our fair share of cool days, which pleases me greatly after the heat of last summer. Harvests are slowly rolling in, with plenty of time in between to process each one. After all, this isn’t August or Spetember yet, which is when our ‘summer’ garden is in full force.
Below you can see a marjoram bouquet that I harvested. Marjoram is a cousin of Oregano, with less of a kick. I usually harvest about three bundles a summer,which gets us through the winter. After I harvest my herbs I dry them and then break them off their stalks and put them into glass jars for safe keeping all winter long. Yes, I think about winter all summer long. That’s how we make it through.
It’s thyme! My favorite, and doing quite well this year.
We’ve also had some really lovely harvest from the allium family this year. Beautiful storage onions coming in by the twos and threes, and a hardy, purple, garlic harvest as well. Praise the garden for its garlic.
Been baking lots of bread. Here is delicious soup made from what the fridge had to offer, along with a slice of homemade bread.
And here is River in the process of mixing up our bread dough. Yeah, she’s tough. And cool. I know.
We harvested some potatoes early, and ate them. She cut them all up into pieces of the same size. So proud.
Plus I baked some awesome chocolate cake.
Well this seems like a pretty brag-y post. I guess I’m proud. Yep, I’m proud. Peace, have a wondeful day.
