My Way Into the Garden & Out Again

I made my way into gardens today for a little clean-up and a little harvest.
Today's modest harvest included a few crookneck squash hiding at the bottom of the basket that I'll cook up tomorrow. The zephyr squash and green onion were all grilled for supper and a few tomatoes made the green salad extra special.
The first horseradish roots were dug and cleaned ...
... and will soon be macerating in a nice jar of apple cider vinegar.
I enjoyed the work, the bending, the sweating and the sunshine before I made my way out of the garden.
And my reward was a nice cold hibiscus tea in a fancy glass.

Your garden is so refreshing, just like the hibiscus tea and so tranquil. I love visiting.

Reading about your garden makes me long for my own even more ... I hope we are in a place that next season we can have our own garden to get all sweaty in, to linger in, weed in, bend in, stretch in & all out enjoy !! I so very much miss having a yard.

I love the look of your tea!! I have been drinking some great ice tea lately which I have made in two gallon batches. Refreshing and yum!!!

That horseradish must be strong I am guessing.
