I’m so lucky. I have great friends. My friend Beth shares things with me all the time. (Lest it look like I’m always on the receiving end…I share with her too). Not long ago she loaned/gave me her extra FoodSaver unit and her Ronco Dehydrator and a handheld FoodSaver too.
I’ve been busy. I’ve dried tomato skins.
Then I put them in the blender and ground them up. Here’s the skins waiting in the blender.
Here’s the blender in acton:
Here’s the powdered skins sealed in a jar.
Then I dried some green onions tops. These came from our garden.
And I dried some mixed peppers from the garden. I have more peppers to dry and add to the jar.
Right now I’ve got Lemon Grass in the dehydrator and then I’ll dry some basil I was given this morning. I met a wonderful lady today via a FreeCycle type group. She gave me all sorts of garden goodies to plant in my yard: white ginger, mint, lemon grass, split-leaf philodendron, bromeliads, a tiny orange lily that almost looks like an orchid….some Basil, Roma tomatoes, peppers…and probably some other stuff I’m forgetting right now. I took her some Passiflora vines. We had a wonderful visit and I made a new friend.
To top off a great morning, I met some friends for lunch and as usual we laughed our way through the whole thing. Thanks Jan and Auline for such a good time!
It’s been a long day and I think I need a nap! See ya next time. 🙂
