So here is more of a peek into my days recently.
Homemade salsa using tomatoes from my garden.
Walnut "meat" using walnuts, cumin, coriander and tamari (a wheat free soy sauce). I used it for a few different things.
Here's one dish I used the "meat" in. It just steamed green beans (from my garden), homemade tomato sauce and walnut meat.
Here's an occassional treat I enjoy. It's a frozen banana, cocoa, peanut butter and almond milk. I also make this into ice cream by using less milk. I really enjoy it but Adam couldn't stand it.
I was weeding the carrots and accidentally pulled these two little guys. They're so tiny!!
Here are all the different tomatoes (the full sized ones at least) I am growing. L-R: German Queen, Black Krim, Beefsteak, Cherokee Purple and Big Rainbow. They are all heirloom varieties. My favorites are the Cherokee purples and the black krims.
My crock with pickles fermenting in it. I had to throw out an entire crock full. I messed up and it molded. Yuck! This is the second crock full.
The crape myrtle in the evening light.
My flower garden has only marigolds and petunias so far. I LOVE seeing them when I pull up each day.
Here's an eggplant bloom.
A purple carrot. I love the contrast. I planted a mix of colors (purple, red, orange and yellow).
All my cucumbers cut and ready to start fermenting.
The marigolds really remind me of my childhood as we had a lot of them and my grandma did as well. I love smelling them.
And I get to see some of the Olympics now...Adam hooked up the antennae a few days ago. However, it's making me stay up even later than I already have been. No good. But I am glad I get to see it. I have finally given up on my Olympic dreams. lol I am to old and I know it...not to mention I don't put in the training I would need.
