I dug up the tubers from Myrtle's Folly--
I had intended to remove the big porch planter, but after taking the dead coleus out, the purple kale looked so nice that I decided to bring 3 white kale from one of the dismantled deck containers to replace the coleus. I think it should last until Thanksgiving now.
Just take a look at how small the kale was when I planted it in late May:
I knew after all that work, I would not feel like making dinner, so I had prepared a bunch of spinach/cream cheese stuffed chicken breasts before I went outside. Then all I had to do was pop them in the oven.
I had made the carrots and fresh cranberry sauce on Saturday. It was a good thing because I was too pooped to even think of doing it after the outside chores.
I froze enough chicken for two more meals. You all know by now how I like to cook once and eat at least three times!
Last week I gave my my mother-in-law a bunch of canning jars that have been in my basement for years. I once intended to grow veggies and learn to can, but that never happened, so I decided it was time to get rid of the jars. In return she sent over some canned goodies--tomatoes, sauerkraut, grape jelly and grape juice. Yes, she even makes her own grape juice from vines in her yard.
I told her I would trade empty jars for these goodies any day!
