For some reason..I feel I need to honor the gardens..while I can..you hear me complaining in March about no sun..no gardens..and freezing..
I cannot take these gardens for granted:)
The peonies are from Noah and his mom when they picked us up at the airport:)♥
The BONHEUR café au lait cup is something I bought in Paris at Comptoir de Famille♥
That's our new rhubarb to replace the one we had..
my neighbor Hilary brought me rhubarb from her garden also..and we had bought strawberries when we returned..so ..
Strawberry rhubarb jam.
I used D Lebovitz's recipe again because it's so darn easy..added the rhubarb w/out adjusting anything else and it came out winner.
The garlic has scaped..I have just a few more to harvest..
but chopped and froze these..apart from about 6..and used one in that cook in the sun.. cherry tomatoes..basil..evoo..herbs(from the garden!)..black olives..and caper ..sauce..the bowl gets so warm in the sun..and the tomatoes actually blister a bit..
add your al dente pasta..and you have a meal..w/ your fresh herbs.
One of our favorite summer meals..
I planted some seeds in wine crates..cute but not good..wood warps..
and the crates dry out every 4 hours..
It's been sunny and warm..and hot since we returned..
so the seeds are hardly standing a chance~
