We got a few more veggies planted this week and still have a few more to go. Then the herbs, with flowers saved for last. Being impatient for produce to play with, I went to Sun Harvest, a local grocery store with produce that tends to be more local, very fresh and quite cheap. We bought apples, pears and berries and came home to make applesauce, pear butter and strawberry/blueberry/blackberry jam. The applesauce has already disappeared. I haven't had real sugar in so long that the jam just amazed me.
The girls are so amazed that you can actually make the foods you buy at the store.
