I have kept busy vacuum sealing more pantry items to extend their shelf life. Found a YouTube channel yesterday on dehydrating vegetables, very informative so going to take down notes for future use. I loved that she showed the difference between those that are blanched and those that are not as well as carrot slices versus grated carrots and how they rehydrate. See her instructions for carrots here.
Or her blog here.
The new back border has finally had its first weeding and sorting out, thank goodness. I was beginning to think I would never get it done. My first vegetable seedings have been sown direct into the ground and are now showing.
DB has started his annual clearing of the dreaded mare's tail. Eventually we give up and let it grow as it greens the garden where there are bare patches. We do try to keep on top of it in the early weeks!
The ironing has been done and I have a batch of vegetable and cheese soup on the go. DB has gone off to the dentist for his check up.
