Hydrangea for a rainy day
Can't take any garden pictures in this rain; but here's one I took the other day of one of my hydrangeas.
Another productive paper work day ahead. It's pouring rain, like yesterday and we're expecting the same thing every day, through the weekend.
This morning I got all my boxes of seeds put away and packaged up several varieties of tomato seeds that I saved for next year. The dining room looks like a dining room again, instead of a garden supply store.
Last night I finally finished going through all my boxes (the equivalent of 8) of recipes, throwing some out and refiling all of them. Now I have one both with just bread recipes, another with desserts, two with my most used recipes and everything else is the others. Now today's project is to go through all the loose recipe clippings and notes and either transfer them to index cards and file or get them in some of my 3 ring binders.
I found an improved recipe for the no knead bread. With the addition of a few drops of red wine vinegar and using hot instead of tepid water, the bread is ready to bake in 3-4 hours instead of 12 - can't wait to try it; but probably not today. Finishing this recipe sorting and filing is probably going to take all day at least.
