The Last Tomato Sandwich of the Summer

The equinox will be here in 2 days and it’s still summerlike in Virginia. Sadly, the garden is winding down. There’s stuff to harvest, but that won’t last too much longer.

Two hours of cleaning in the garden happened today.

Sadly, that purple thing is an eggplant. I have failed as a gardener.

The volunteer sycamore is getting too big for the garden now.

Honey Bee Sweet, Sticky, Scrumptious

Leave a comment

I decided I could take one frame from one of the 2 hives this year since there is plenty more for the bees for the winter (read ~50lbs/hive!). Since it was only one (but still 5-6 pounds of honey!) I scraped it into cheese cloth, squeezed, twisted, and finally hung it off the faucet in the kitchen sink to ooze out, and gave it one more squeeze with spatulas to get the last bit sans wax.
