LOL! I have found out that most people do not like turnips. When I was growing up I didn't like them either, except raw. My great aunt would cook them down to mush then cream them. Yuck!. However, when I got married my mother in law fixed them in her pressure cooker with potatoes and beef and I loved them. I do the same thing except I use chicken broth for flavor instead of beef. I also know that most people do not grow turnips in the spring. Turnips are usually grown in the fall, but one year I had some extra seed left and so I just went ahead and planted them when I planted my radishes and guess what? They grew just fine, so now I grow them every spring and every fall!
This is my first year growing spinach as I am not a big fan. However, Yngwie and Dear Husband love it so I gave it a try and it did fabulous! Last night I made spinach salads and everything in them I grew! The spinach, the onions, the broccoli. (Well I didn't grow the bacon!) No preservatives, no chemicals, just totally natural food. I really get a feeling of achievement when I can feed my family with foods that I grow.
This year I have started an herb garden. Notice that nothing is growing on one side? I don't know why! I planted those herbs are the same time and nothing came up. So I have replanted the parsley, and oregano, and some nasturiums with hopes that this time I'll have some success.
I started this blog as a sewing blog and I really do sew. Just not very much in the summer unless it rains or late at night. This weekend when a storm blew up for about an hour, I went in and made this tote. It is made from a dish towel that my grandmother gave me. She has no idea where she got it, she found it in one of her trunks. I added a little sparkle with the trim at the top. I really like how it turned out. I try and keep things like this on hand for quick gifts.
