Finally, Hay-making is over with..I feel that I could compete with any woman wrestler anywhere in the world as I have more muscle build up than I ever thought was possible...not counting the calloused hands, the strained arm and oh yes, the aches and pains......:)
From the hay-making, I delved into the vegetable garden. Today was an exceptionally busy one with blanching. I have a husband who insists on growing enough vegetables to feed an army, literally. Here is a photo of the kale and spinach that is growing.......
Now, do you believe the above statement that I made?
Then there is the cauliflower...well, that is another story... I went to the garden this morning at ten o'clock to gather it to blanch. I was so pleased that I had this amount ready
and of course, cleaned it (that being a major part of the process) and got it all blanched:
and waiting for it to cool...so, in the meantime, I want to blanch some of that kale. Off I go to the garden again...only to discover another FIVE heads that I had overlooked in another portion of the garden...Oh Me Nerves!!!! Yes, I DID blanch these, too:
The end result was three bags of kale and SIX large bags of cauliflower. I have already done nine bags of broccoli in between times of hay-making.
I guess I shouldn't complain when there are so many people in the world who are hungry.
I think I have a DH who doesn't like to see me idle...Idle is not a word I can relate to because my rug hooking is not having justice done this time of year. I did stay up until 3:30 this morning to finish one that I have had in the frame for a month. I was determined to finish it off and here it is at 1:00 at night and I am still going...I must be like the Everready battery....just keeps going and going.....:)
Hope my post is not boring....Take care Everyone...
