And Yesterday and the Day Before

I made time for the garden ... 
... and time to rack three gallons of Blueberry Wine, and bottle a gallon of Melissa Ale (v.2) ...
... time to prepare garden-n-forest folk food to enjoy ...
... a batch of calendula tincture ...
... a fabulous garden salad ...
... pickled zephyr squash and (more) zucs, and beans and  jalapeños ... 
... a batch of bread -n- butter pickles ...
... time to play at Platt Hill with The Boy ...
... and to watch his little boy spirit take flight ...
... and soar.

That's what I made today, yesterday and the day before.

YUUMMM!This is great, I just finished dinner and I'm hungry all over again. I love squash, the Mister use to garden, but not this year. No fresh organic veggies for me this year from the yard. God, I miss my garden.

Do you cook the zucchini before pickling? Or does it go in raw? I have so much, I don't know what to do with it, maybe pickling is the answer!

I'm drooling. You are amazing! I just love reading your blog and seeing what you've been up to. I would love to be in your kitchen, garden...

aja - the zucs are salted, sweated and drained and then heated to the boiling point before packing the jars. Hope that helps!

Thanks everyone! It's good to be home ... I'll be managing more canning and preserving this week. Stay tuned!
