I didn’t get a nap in, like I had planned, but that’s ok. The baby slept later than usual on Saturday (we were late to swim lessons!) and the husband let me sleep in a little later yesterday. Both days of longer rest were much-needed.
On Friday night, my neighbor and I went over to my mom’s house to pick blueberries. My mom has a couple of bushes that produce SO MANY berries! The limbs are so weighed down, and it looks like we barely made a dent in the crop. I picked an entire colander of blueberries, and my neighbor picked a pretty large basket full of berries.
Now I need blueberry recipes (for something other than cobbler or pancakes.) Suggestions?
Yesterday I spent time in the garden tying the tomato plants back up. The are out of control huge, and the tomato cages are not keeping them upright. So now I have more metal stakes in the garden, and they are tied to the tomato plans AND the cages. The plants are huge! There are lots of tomatoes on the plants and we’re just
not-so patiently waiting for them to ripen.
Last night, we were on our way home from a walk, and I walked up to check out the squash plants. I checked them before we went to Florida two weeks ago, and we had nothing. I didn’t think to check them this past week because of all of the rain we’ve had. I found two ginormous zucchini plants! Seriously. These things should have been picked a week ago. I picked both and we’ll now be having stuffed zucchini this week for dinner. (We also have a lot of smaller zucchini plants that will be great grilled or sauteed.)
How was your weekend? Got a recipe you’re willing to share? I’ll even take suggestions as to what to do with our over sized zucchini plants!
