The consequence of a bigger garden ....
Is more food.....
Piles of it in fact! Everywhere I look!
Many people have asked us in the past why we chose to move the country? Our short answer is "that we wanted to grow more food"
(Carrot weighed in at 1.2kg and was sweet and tender)
And the shearer hasn't failed me.
More food takes more time for preserving and that's pretty much what we've been doing the past month since I saw you last.
(Blackberry picking down by the river)
And of course there is the associated time taken by the garden and harvesting itself.
But we are having a ball and nearly every jar is filled for the year ahead.
This is a new to me recipe this year and one I'll be making EVERY year if I get the opportunity with a glut of green tomatoes. It's "Green Tomato Salsa" and the recipe is from The Healthy Canning site here. You'll want to pin this one! It doesn't look real pretty but, oh my, the flavour AND what a brilliant way to use green tomatoes. It's delicious as an accompaniment to corn chips and sour cream or topping for nachos or as a pizza topping or part of a cheese board. Sensational!
And in the midst, the grandson turned three and had a Toy Story party. Can you believe it!
Where does the time go?
