Putting Up Food
Judy got back from a week on the Kuskokwim delta yesterday. Today we put up a lot of food. She thawed and picked raspberries, picked the last of the rhubarb. Then she made jam. I cut tomatoes and started drying them in the oven. They are Stupice and Black Cherry.
Friday's Frontiersman carried a front page warning for gardeners to check for potato blight. I did. So far, we're spared. Here are the ones I dug up to see:
I found a couple of Boletus edulis mushrooms, walking Strider today. Here's one of them:
The Boletus, cut up ready to be mixed with some of the smaller red potatoes, garlic, salt, parsley and chives, sauteed in butter. With Sockeye salmon and a lettuce-tomato salad from the gardens.
