Yesterday we decided to pull the beets out of the garden… so I could spend the next 4 1/2 hours pickling them. We made it a family event and Greyson could not have been more thrilled about being told to pull plants up! ….especially when he came across some ripe strawberries! Beets are one of my favorite veggies to grow because they grow so well here. We also pulled the volunteer red potato plant out of this bed because we’ve got summer squash plans in it’s spot. A fresh potato from the garden steamed with olive oil, salt, and pepper is seriously the butteriest yummiest vegetable…like ever.
Back to beets…we pulled ’em all up into a giant pile……composted the tops, washed them out in the garden, and put them straight into a giant pot for pickling. …and that’s how I spent the rest of our Sunday. …until evening…..when we went to see the new Avengers!!
Love, Grey & Brianna
