Everyone loves a girl with hands of garlic!
It’s time for pickling and I’m up to my elbows in garlic and Dill. It’s the key ingredient for all the good pickles. I try to put lots in and sometimes they still ask for MORE GARLIC!. I’m happy to oblige but I smell like garlic and I’m beginning to wonder if it’s permanent.
Proof of all the Canning
If you click it, there are notes all over that picture explaining all the stuff going on.
My goal this year is to fill up my root cellar shelves with pickles and preserves so we won’t be buying the ones from the store that have all the preservatives and ucky stuff in them. I have a small start:
It seems like I’ve done way more work than that small bit that’s done but we are already eating some of the stuff.
This is what’s in the kitchen today:
And Blueberries and tomatoes which were too shy to be photographed. I have green and red tomatoes to use up. I really want to make more salsa. We like our salsa in this house and I know we’ll go through whatever I make.
Because of all the cooking I really haven’t had any free time for knitting. Still I managed to chart out and cast on for a new cabled sweater
Not very impressive with literally only the cast on done. This is a sweater I’ve been dreaming of for a while. It kept popping into my head and finally I decided I needed to get it on paper. Hopefully soon I’ll have some down time to actually work on it.
