What you do in your house is worth as much as if you did it up in heaven for our Lord God. We should accustom ourselves to think of our position and work as sacred and well-pleasing to God, not on account of the position and work, but on account of the word and faith from which the obedience and the work flow. ~ Martin Luther

As for me....

Our nightly garden visits are yielding baskets-full.

Apparently, I can grow more than lettuce (something I have been curious about asI harvested spinach, lettuce, and more spinach and lettuce just a few weeks ago!)

I've been enjoying the fresh from the garden goodness and the challenge of USING it all, for now and preserving it for later.

Last week I had to thin out the beets and used the beet greens. Dumb Blonde Rebecca never knew people actually ATE the beetgreens! *blush*

These days I feel very "vegetarian"ish.

Well....not QUITE.

I think, no I KNOW I would grow beets just to make that decadent looking dish. I mean, it has bacon, what else do you need?
What do beets taste like? It is one of the few vegetables my mom doesn't like, so I've never had them.
Your letter will be sent tomorrow, as the mail man decided to change things up and come hours early these last 2 days....

Umm, beets! They are so good but no one in my family likes them so I enjoy alone!!

Do you have a lot of tomatoes? They are really good to dry! We just found out that the apples at our place in NY are really good. I know the deer love them! It you know anything about revitalizing an old apple orchard we would love to hear it! As you well know we are in the research stage right now... I don't know what varieties they are, just old..

Enjoy the rest of your summer!!! and veggies!!
