This is my new goal: to become a domestic goddess! We planted flowers...
A kind lady in the ward was giving away a bunch of perrennials and we found some free mulch. Sooo... we made flower beds. We still have to add tulips and daffodils and other pretty things, but it feels like a home with flowers in the yard!
This week I'm learning how to can. I've canned my first batch of pickles and I helped my parents with green beans. Yuck! But the point is that I learned how to do it, even though my family won't eat them. Now that the garden is producing vegetables faster than we can dream to eat them I will be learning all sorts of methods for food preservation: canning, freezing, dehydrating. I think I'll be busy for the next couple of months.Mmmm, can't wait for them to cure.
