Halloween is almost here again! So I have posted a few Halloween inspired lanyards in honor of the fun holiday! Available here.
My parents came over last night for dinner. Jim made his perfect eggplant parmesan and I made stuffed mushrooms but I forgot to get out the camera since we were having too much fun cooking!
I made an Italian herb bread and Jim marinated spices in olive oil for dipping. Mmmmm!
Jim brought over organic heirloom tomatoes which he grew. Wow, do these taste better than the genetically modified ones in the grocery store! For lunch today I cut up 3 of them and added them to the leftover pasta and dipping oil. More mmmmmm!
My hydrangeas are looking pretty with their fall color flowers!
I started composting food waste in the spring.
Each week I take what has accumulated in a bowl in the fridge and bury it in a pile in the woods. This includes coffee grounds, vegetable peels and egg shells!
It gets covered by my grass clippings as well. I do not turn it or do any work with it but am hoping that next spring I will have some nice, nutrient rich soil to work with!
My parents brought over 2 bunches of this plant that has expanded too much in their garden. The flowers have already passed but they are a real pretty pink and grow tall and strong although you can not tell from my planting job! I am confident they will look gorgeous next year!
Have a great first week of October! ~Val
