Thank you SO much, dear friends, for you supportive, kind, and loving comments in response to my post about my father-in-law. You have touched my heart yet again with the outpouring of your thoughtful words. And not just me, but also Brian and his whole family as I shared your comments with them. We had a lovely memorial for my father-in-law and now we move on to our new normal without him – we, of course, are richer for having had him in our lives and we are also richer that all of you are in our lives through this blog. Love you guys!
Here are a few highlights from last week’s Tuesday Garden Party:
Isn’t Nancy’s pantry awesome? Oh, the room! And how tidy – I’m a wee bit envious of those cast iron pans and how sweet they look hanging like that – though now that I think about it, that must’ve been quite the project to secure the pot rack enough to hold all that weight!
I just loved this photo from Michelle’s mid June garden – first of all, how did she get it – did she lie in wait or just happen upon the scene? Second, it warms my heart to see bees workin’ away so she’ll be able to harvest ripe raspberries soon!
Walking onions have always fascinated me and the onions from Caroline’s garden are starting their funny, bendy, walking ways which reminded me yet again that I really want to plant these onions! They are supposed to replant themselves, basically, by bending over and rooting with the result being a steady supply of onions, good for self-sufficiency. One day…
Oh! I love it when you link up recipes using your harvest, too – there were a couple last week as well, though I’m sad I don’t have any kale or chard left to make them – but they’re pinned for the fall. So I hope this week to see more of what is growing – vegetables and flowers! – and any recipes you’re making with your produce!
