What Did You do in the Garden Today?

Recommended Posts

Hey, Wade, et al!

I'm good!  Just been so busy lately, and not growing anything this season except a bed full of broccoli.  About to start some late seeds in the house this week, for a LATE winter garden, LOL!

Been hanging out in the kitchen at home, making yogurt and cooking in my Instantpot, LOL!

Yesterday, I harvested all 28 lemons from my little Meyer Lemon tree.  Best harvest ever!  1st winter, I got ONE lemon.  Second winter, I got FIVE lemons.  THIS winter, 28 lemons!!  So, again in the kitchen, juicing and freezing cubes for preservation.

I'll check back into the website when I have something going again!

 

Thanks for checking up on me, ya'll, and sorry to make ya'll worry!

Hugs!

Boudin that's a good looking pot of greens. FGEA could also be future steaks and sausages of my freezer. Good to see you post again GG.

Picked up 20 bags of leaves this morning that will go into the garden after the rain quits. Collards and kale are doing good.  Satsumas and Hamlin sweet orange are doing good. I need to juice up a couple of quarts O.J. this afternoon. Watched Ragun make that "easy cajun chicken sausage tasso gumbo" this morning now I have to go to Rouse's sometime this week and get the ingredients.

Hey, Whitetrouts,

What's your process for pasteurizing orange juice?  I'm surrounded by neighbors with citrus trees, who don't do much with the fruits!

I don't pasteurize O.J. I squeeze it usually a quart at a time and drink it in one to 3 days.(usually 1 day).  Sometimes I will squeeze it and freeze it in 2 liter soda bottles. It not as good as fresh, but still better than store bought. I believe to pasteurize it you heat the juice to 165 degrees for 1 minute, but I have always thought it might change the flavor or reduce the vitamin potency. I drink it fresh and a lot of it.
