  4. Good morning Rhonda. What a lovely job you have planned. I love going through my seeds. You are lucky that you are not as bound by the seasons, when it comes to sowing, as we are down here. Enjoy!

    On my mind today is power!!!

  8. Hi Rhonda It was lovely to meet you too.You wrote about Portuguese cabbage earlier , is it nice eating?The question I wished to ask on Wednesday was re: yoghourt,do you place bought yoghourt in the freezer for future starter or just scoops of your homemade yoghourt have a great day Cheers Affussa

    ReplyDelete
  9. Hi Affussa, I usually don't have yoghurt in the fridge all the time. When I make it, I place some in a container and store that in the freezer to make future yoghurt. If you have homemade yoghurt in the fridge and you want to make more, your starter can be what is in the fridge.

  13. Oh, that is such an exciting time of year! Around the world I am worrying about whether or not we are going to get red tomatoes and peppers before it begins to frost!

  14. Hi Rhonda,

    On my mind today is my diet and some changes that need to be made to hopefully identify what has been causing stomach problems recently! Also I have placed a hold for Nourishing Traditions at my local library and look forward to reading that!

  16. I've saved seeds before, but that's it. Just saved them. Maybe I'll try actually planting some of them this fall, before the frost.

    Here's what's on my mind:

  17. I am hoping to save seeds from my garden too when the time comes. A better idea than letting them blow all around the garden and pop up everywhere as mine do lol!

  31. Good morning Rhonda,
    I have only just popped my head in after being away for a week.
    First, so sorry to hear about Alice. I know she was loved and will be missed.
    Next, what a bevy of wonderful information you have posted during my absence! Can't wait to read them all properly. (I always delve into the 'you might like's at the end).
    On my mind is a guava sorbet I made from some excess fruit given to me by a family friend. Looking forward to enjoying it with my hubby and kids on the back balcony this evening.

    Recipe:
    8 guavas (peeled and cut into 1/2 inch chunks)
    2 cups water
    1 1/2 cups sugar
    Juice of 1 lime
    Bring water and sugar to boil. Add guava pieces. Simmer for 30 to 45 minutes until seeds separate from flesh. Cool. Remove pulp chunks and place in blender. Strain liquid to remove seeds. Add this liquid to pulp in blender. Add juice of lime. Give it a whirl, pour into container and place in freezer.

    Have a great and restful weekend

  33. I am duly inspired to go check on my seeds and more importantly my seedlings that are waiting for the heat to break here in USDA Zone 10 to get into the ground!

    Small recipe changes that make big differences in the finished product are on my mind today...
