Some of the fruits of my labours this summer:
A great batch of soap for the coming year.
And some home-made pickles. My first success with these babies.
I was hoping for a lot more produce from my garden this year but the weather in June was astonishingly bad and drowned my crops - twice. The fact that I got six jars of dills is a testament to my want to pickle things - I had to buy the cucumbers at the farmer's market!
Still . . . we got more this year than last. And I'm still stoked about next year with big plans for improvements, seed starting and weather precautions.
In the meantime, I'll take what I can get from our little urban farmhouse. It makes me happy, no matter how small.
Happy Tuesday, Michele
