Thank God we finally got some rain today, been dry for over 3 weeks here. The garden was begging for water and I'm glad I didn't have to do it myself. I belive that when you water your garden you are simply keeping it alive, things just don't seem to grow until the rain comes. Looks like we have a good chance of rain all week and we are are looking forward to it.
The cherry tomato plants are covering us up with sweet little tomatoes. These plants just popped up around the edge of the compost pile and I transplanted the over to the garden area. We are getting about this many cherry tomatoes each day now and I am freezing some for later use in soups and chilli. Just wash them good and let them dry then place in a freezer bag. We are so lucky to have a foodsaver to vacum seal all our food before it hits the freezer. When ready to use just thaw and run hot water over them and the skins will slip right off. I'm not a big fan of putting things in the freezer but this is a lot eaiser than canning them. If ( when ) the electric goes off these can be a tasty treat rather than let them ruin.
We’ve got beautiful wild orchids in bloom
