The dog days of summer, time to freeze some of the garden’s bounty!

This time of year I always get a lot of questions about preserving all the extra vegetables for fruit that come out of the garden.  The produce at our local garden stand is amazing and I try to get their right when they’re restocking to make sure I get the broccoli before it sells out!  The farmer has gotten to know me by now and we have some great conversations.  This week I answer your questions about how I freeze some of my favorites so that I can enjoy a taste of summer’s best in the cold winter months.

Also, I learned today that the trip to Sao Miguel next year sold out!  Thank you everybody who signed up, I can’t wait to share my amazing island with you.  AAA Travel is taking names for folks who missed out and they may schedule a second trip immediately after, so if you’re interested please give them a call.
