Our friendly farmer friends popped over for a visit. A spot of tea and some amazing gifts from the garden, they wondered off to say, “hello,” to the girls.
They brought some hot hot peppers. Substance P has an iteration. Brent named it “P++.” Hotter and more dangerous than Substance P. P++ is the guy in the ‘R’ rated movie.
And then the tomatoes. Green ones, red ones, yellow ones, lovely ones. They brought tomatoes for the whole farm! … and some not so hot peppers.
The boys did our annual driveway-pothole fixin’ and grabbed some gravel to help things along. These are the moments when you say to yourself, ” I need gravel. I wish I had a … wait! I have a truck!” We love our truck. White Toyota Hilux. Reliable. Strong. Fun to drive. Not many features. A number one pick by off-roading homeboys and the Taliban.
Another load is needed to finish the job.
The tomatoes were processed quickly. Kevin sharpened the knives.
The time for fresh basil is over. It was 2C today and it’s time to prepare for that cold weather deal.
My garlic has come to an end. I’m going to quadruple the garlic this year. We go through a lot of garlic, this family.
Basil in. Tomatoes surrendering to yummy tomato sauce no doubt topping some yummy beef.
Rye bread and Spelt ready for the Rye bread Spelt bread taste off. It’s been a steady day. A great day. A cold day. Another day that feels like two days. Bon Weekend!
