Out at six this morning and finished up manicuring the corn. Then I just walked around looking to see what was needed next. I had to cut out three seed stocks from the rhubarb and then picked enough rhubarb for a pie and a small cup full to freeze. I guess tomorrow I will go into the potatoes again and cultivate around them- that is the only place in the whole garden that has a blade of grass daring to try and grow. Norman dusted the cauliflower yesterday so they look better, there were no worms on those today. Right after breakfast I made a rhubarb pie and a small apple tart while Norman planted some carrots and replanted the green beans that didn’t come up here in the kitchen garden. I cooked the remaining rhubarb and got about a cupful for Patty. She wanted me to make her some with no sugar, she can add that late when she uses it. While Norman cleaned up my downstairs kitchen I went down to the studio and sewed the seams I had pinned last night and then cut out the petticoats for the costumes for Gina and Dyhana. After that I picked a nice mess of snow peas for dinner. I will stir fry those with the extra spinach from yesterday and three little pieces of broccoli I picked this morning- they should taste very good! My hives are getting better. They still itch like mad but are not spreading anymore and I can see the swelling going down. Oh, well if it isn’t that it will be something else to bother me and I am used to that!
My new pattens came today. I got 12 of them all sized from 7 to 16. They are great and I know the girls will love them. When Gina gets here in July she and her mother and Grand mother will have to sit down and pick out the ones they want me to make for her. I am the great grand mother so am not in touch with the new fashions, I do know the ones I want to make and the ones I won’t make so will have a voice in the matter. I have the afternoon free so can sew on the the dress I am working on now. But first must go to ebay and leave positive feed back for the pattens. I wish everyone who stopped by to read my post would leave me a quick comment, just a ” Hi” , that way I would know who I am talking to. I don’t have anyone here to talk to except Norman and he is so deaf we don’t talk much. Have a great day.
I usually check your site every day. I do enjoy your comments about your gardening. Ours is not even started yet. Keep talking to Norman; he probably hears more than you know. Men sometimes like to pretend they are deaf!!
Hi Rosemary – Thank you for the visit. Wish I could offer you a cup of coffee and a piece of rhubarb pie. I think you know Norman alright. When I read him you note he laughed in a very understanding way.
