Independence Days: Week 23

Plant something: nothing

Harvest something: basil, strawberries, plums, tomatoes, onions, raspberries (3, maybe?), zucchini

Preserve something: strawberries (frozen for smoothies), peaches (canned), pears (in pear sauce– yum!)

Waste not: lots of laundry dried in the sunshine

Want not: nothing

Build Community Food Systems:

Eat the food: Hurrah!  Tomatoes, basil (with fresh mozarella), wax and green beans, corn, peaches, strawberries, raspberries, carrots, squash, zucchini… and our favorite cake, Plum Upside Down Cake (for our anniversary)

  1. Hi Everyone…hope this works. I love this picture of J and O. I also see you have a plum tree and this year you can eat the plums…that’s great. it’s fun to have fruit trees in your back yard, The house I lived in when I was 5 and 6 had a huge back yard and we had a great big apple tree with tons of good apples and apple trees are fun to climb and I loved climbing high up in the tree. My mother also had a hugh garden and I can remember picking all the green beans and tomatoes and they were so good to eat. New Jersey corn and tomatoes are the best in the country…good soil. Other people will say they have the best, but trust me New Jerseys are the best and we ate corn everyday it was in season. Your great-grandmother was a wonderful cook. I’m not so good anymore, but I do make good applesause every fall and good spageti (spelling) sauce. Grandma Judy is not a good speller. Well I hope this gets to you..let me know and I’ll try to write as often as I can. Have to get up and get off the computer and go work in the yard. Have a Happy Labor Day and I love you all, Grandma Judy
