more for me?
I invited people to come get vegetables from my garden, but not many came. I guess many people already have a good source of zucchini, tomatoes, etc... So I'm making 2 big pots of zucchini soup. I'm adding onions, potatoes, garlic, tomatoes and herbs. I'll can it all for the winter. Sarah and I also picked 5 more gallons of tomatoes. I'm going to chop these up and cook them in the Crockpot. I will make sauce to can. I ate one jar of the sauce I made yesterday. I added some milk and cheese to it and it was an awesome, nearly instant soup. The sauce contained tomatoes, onions, garlic, and herbs with a small amount of olive oil. So if know one wants my fresh vegetables, there are more for me! It's so quite in the house. Thomas, Philip, and Nicole are all helping to set up the summer camp that begins on Sunday. Next week Sarah will also be gone. Juergen has the week off to work on the house. I'm not sure yet if Thomas will stay at camp, or come help Juergen. I sort of hope he stays at camp. It would be nice for Juergen and I to have a week nearly alone. Jessica will be with her teacher in the mornings. We do have to work, so Juergen could use Thomas' help. Either way, it looks like another quite week (I hope).
