The Yellow Farmhouse Weekly Menu Plan
for September 17th thru 23rd
Never work before breakfast;
if you have to work before breakfast,
eat your breakfast first.
Notes: Some of our gardens are ready for their winter naps and we’ll begin some prep on that in a couple of weeks. My zinnias look absolutely wonderful… making me wish I’d planted more and more and just forgot completely about the cosmos… which never really quite took off. The little marigolds we planted have become big beautiful bushy things right at the edge of the garden. Oh how they make me smile. I feel the need to purchase some mums. And pumpkins. It’s time.
Also- I have sprained my ankle and so the kitchen duties for most of this week belong to the kiddos. I think we may be eating a lot of cereal this week.
From the Garden: We continue to bring in baskets and buckets full of the juiciest, best tasting tomatoes. The cucumbers and beans are almost done. Mr. Steady says we have one more squash but that’s it.
From the Farmer’s Market: potatoes, green peppers, squash, peaches, apples
Putting up: Ms. Books and Mr. Steady want to make salsa soon and olive pickles. I want to try my hand at some stewed tomatoes and tomato sauce…. We’ll see…
