This is the view from the dining room porch just before sunrise.
It was cool again this morning and still is and it is very cloudy. I see tornadoes did devastating damage again in the Midwest.
Glad I brought the plants back inside last night.
I picked rhubarb for the first time yesterday after cleaning the back porch bed. Sadly it is more green than red. I have tried so many times to grow red and have failed. I plan to try again. The green is good; tastes just like it should but it is so sour. I made pie yesterday afternoon and used a full cup of sugar and it wasn't nearly enough. I added more sugar when I ate a piece. DH eats it only if he is starving for something sweet and yesterday he wasn't. I will freeze the rest today. I used the last of frozen crust so will be making up a batch soon.
I make the pie like Mom and Grandma did, just fruit ,flour and sugar, no eggs. We made gooseberry the same way. I think I see two wild seedling gooseberry plants in the west fence row. I didn't cut them down.
This morning while it was too wet and cool to work outside, I made banana bread to use up two large over-ripe bananas. This will go in the freezer if DH doesn't eat it first. The loaf wasn't very large.
I like have sweets in the freezer for when neighbors drop by.
We are now into the afternoon. It has warmed up to the 70's. I was dreading trying to start the string trimmer. But once I sprayed the breather with starter fluid, it took right off. I trimmed the edge of the new bed and the light pole bed. I hope to mow the middle very low. I have one stump I need to mark first.
