First on the agenda was to make something to snack on. I had nothing in the house, so I made oatmeal cookies, and then made pie dough. Cut up the over fresh peaches and made one peach pie, the other with be chocolate moose.
I went down to the garden to gather some beets. I took a photo of my garden but decided it looked like a jungle on the photo! A 'delightful chaos' of vegetables there. Many of which need to be taken care of now.
I pulled out the three rows of beets, which mounted to be four large pails full! For the next few hours I was cutting, washing, boiling, cleaning, scraping and boiling again. To make pickled beets and to freeze beet tops. I use beet tops in my stuffed pasta.
My beets are the red and white ring type.
I went to put my beet tops in the freezer and noticed the huge mess in there. So I went into the basement and got the coolers. Emptied the freezer into coolers and plastic containers, cleaned out the freezer and then moved it to face a different wall. Re-loaded the freezer once defrosted and cleaned and made a list of what is all in there.( enough zucchini to feed an army!).
This done. It is 1:30pm. Nap time for some around here. Dishes can wait. I want to sew.
