Not much going on today but I am making the last of my cabbage into freezer slaw. You can find the recipe and tutorial at the link below:
I freeze it in small freezer containers overnight
Then transfer the frozen slaw to vacuum sealed bags
O Wise One and I have begun cleaning up the flower beds and cutting back the perennials for the fall. We get up early every morning and vow to spend 1 hour together in the flower beds every morning. Just that 1 hour for 2 people makes a huge difference and we were making great progress until this latest heat wave hit. I got overheated one morning and got sick to my stomach so we have decided that if it is over 80 at 7:30 a.m. it will just have to wait. So we have had several mornings off here lately. They are predicting that the temperatures will start to cool again on Thursday so I am sure we will be back to flower bed duty.
We have also started scraping the porch every afternoon in preparation for a new paint job. We wait till the afternoon when the porch is shady and cooler.
I also want to make some more zucchini bread for the freezer while I have plenty.
I roasted a pan of plum tomatoes in the oven and they made the whole house smell wonderful.
The bell peppers are starting to ripen and I will start to put them in the freezer next week.
Most of the plums are gone except the ones in the very top of the tree and we have decided to just let the birds have them. We have put up our fair share, gave lots to family and the neighbors and we are just about plummed out.
Next month it will be the apples. I can't wait for some fresh apple fritters.
So as you can see winter isn't here yet and we are still awful busy.
