Some Garden Projects

I didn't think to take any before or during shots, but here are the outcomes:

Our first and experimental jar of Kosher style pickled green tomatos.  We have no idea how long we need to let them pickle.  So if you know please share!

And Daddy's yummy Mint Tea.  The kids go NUTS for this stuff!  The way we make it is we snip several stems from the mint (Cla likes to use spearmint for the tea).  We put them in a large bowl and cover with water.  Then you squeeze/massage/crush the mint in the water.  Then you strain it into a pitcher and repeat (with the same mint) one or two more times.  Add a little sugar (or I bet honey would be even better) and you have tea.

Ben was the official tea stirrer...
And Anna was the official ice cube "blooper".  (bloop being the sound a heavy object makes when being dropped into water of course)

Then take many refreshing sips.....
