Along with my apple ventures, I've been cooking and gardening. The weather has been so much more pleasant these past few days, so I can actually enjoy being outside again! That is, if I get out there in the morning and late evening. The temps are steadily climbing back to the nineties by Friday, so I hope to get things done out there before then. I hope to plant some beets, turnips, swiss chard, and spinach this evening. It will be interesting to see how the weather does until fall. Hopefully, these will make a harvest!
Skylar started back to school Monday. He is taking his lunch! That was a surprise to me, and I'm getting it ready for him in the mornings. I made him some brownies for his snack. He likes them! But, he just ate a fried pie and decided he wants one of those in his lunch tomorrow. The pies are good, but I think they will taste better when I make the crust from scratch, instead of canned biscuit dough.
I hope to get to post on harvesting honey, soon! It probably won't be long until we do that! Ya'll have a great week! Blessings from Bama!
