Judy and I are taking breaks from painting the house and hikes (at least for Judy and her friends) and other stuff, by putting up vegetables and fruits from our gardens.
Tomorrow Judy will begin jam making. Strawberry-rhubarb jam. Today I inserted thousands of ladybugs into the greenhouse. Then I pulled a spinach crop out of the ground, washed the product, and planted the last row of arugula. Then I cut some rosemary sprigs, and made some spinach pasta dough.
Some went into vacuum seal bags. The rest got made into noodles and cooked, mixed with fresh tomatoes, in a cream sauce. We served it with a garden salad, mixed with strawberries and basil, and barbecued Copper River Sockeye. With dinner, we drank a 2006 Cline Cellars Ancient Vine Mourvedre.
