Good morning from the garden!
I will be busy this weekend in my two favorite places: the garden and the kitchen. For starters, I have an apple tree to plant. Then I will be tackling my cucumber situation - vines full along with the two bottom drawers in our refrigerator. I'm going to try a new pickle recipe this year, one I found in Southern Living. I also have my herb garden to tend to, cutting and drying for fall and winter cooking. On Monday, we're slow cooking - a pork shoulder in spices and bathed in barbeque sauce. There will be local corn, chunks of ice cold watermelon, hanging out on the porch with glasses of sun-brewed iced tea until the sun begins to lower in the sky, and a cobbler, of course. Then there will be frosty mugs of beer shared amongst the grown-ups while the little ones chase crickets with squirt bottles until the sun finally sets.
This is how we plan to wrap up this fine summer. How about you?
