send me a leaf, but from a little tree
that grows no nearer your house
than half an hour away. for then
you will have to walk, you will get strong and i
shall thank you for the pretty leaf.

“Whenever we grow, we tend to feel it, as a young seed must feel the weight and inertia of the earth as it seeks to break out of its shell on its way to becoming a plant.”

eat-to-thrive:

Romaine lettuce “tacos” tonight filled with diced yellow & green zucchini, cucumber, chioggia beets, red onion, pineapple, cilantro, avocado, cherry tomatoes, & dressed with lime juice!  Also a few edible flowers thrown in… nasturtiums, calendula petals, & onion blossoms.

Plenty of room left in the jellies and jam pantry to go, new shelves this year added to the second pantry and the pears have finished out the first pantry. I still have okra to pickle, chipotles to smoke, sweet peppers to roast, another 3-4 more batches of tomatoes and a pot of soup is going into the canner today. I’m going to go shake the trees for empty jars that have wandered off over the year because as always I’ll run out of jars before I run out of food.

Well done Wowsers! Fearless60.
