Fresh lavender is one of my favorite smells, especially paired with fresh oranges and lemons. I’ve had a lemon tree for as long as I can remember, and it was planted by my dad’s uncle on our property. It was a cross breed between lemon and tangerine, giving it some very intense flavors and odd shapes. We have so many lemons, they just go to waste because we can’t use them fast enough. I might start sharing them with the neighbors, here. 🍋🍋🍋 As for the lavender, I’m harvesting and drying it for future use, like in the cleansing bundles I make for spiritual and spacial cleansing.

I am still assessing storm damage in my garden from Monday. My tender greens and seedlings are showing the most damage, I’m not sure if my lettuce will start to shown new growth or if it will throw in the towel. The Mizuna leaves must be a bit tougher than some of the tender greens because it held up pretty well other than broken stems. I harvested most of the broken stems this evening and am going to try them in a quick stir fry. Mizuna grows so beautifully throughout the winter here. Anyone have any favorite recipes? I usually eat it raw in salad but since I have so much I am cooking it tonight.
I still have tomatoes from my summer harvest! Green tomatoes but they are still producing! Due to storms and more rain coming I had to pick all the green ones but I know they will turn red off the vine. These are Early Girl tomatoes which I have grown for years, it’s a faithful variety. Can’t wait to plant more next spring! #garden#organic#plantbased#gardener#organic#vegetablegarden#vegetablegardening
