Softly, softly…

Posted on

I decided to go easy on you today. To tread, oh, so softly, softly…

I am ecstatic that my tomatoes are doing so well!! Remember my earlier post about my garden? Well, I’ve been picking some tomatoes – organic, pesticide free – regularly for more than a week (probably more than 2 weeks already, time goes by so quickly!), and new baby ones keep appearing on the vines. Happy me! 😀 (See, not grumpy and asking uncomfortable questions all the time… 😉 ) I’ve started putting some shade netting over them, to save them from the birds.

My heirloom ‘Oxheart’ tomatoes.
My thriving tomato plants. Can you see all the green ones?

Still on the subject of food – something that is very dear to my heart 😉 – today I canned, or tried to can, some cherries. We bought two boxes, and I’m worried that they are going to go off quicker than we can eat them, so for the first time ever, I did some canning! We will find out soon if it was a successful endeavour or not. Now I just need to make some lovely vanilla ice cream to have with the cherries on Christmas day…

Cherrieeeeeees!

I have also started looking at a Christmas menu. I know, I know, I left it a bit late! But that’s just me. We do have a ham already, and there are the cherries and ice cream. So, I have to still fill in the rest. Soon, soon…

Enjoy your Friday – I know in big parts of the world it is not Friday anymore – and your weekend, if we don’t chat again soon.
