June 2013 Showcasing In My Kitchen

I am writing this post as the month goes along so that I have something to share on the 1st of June 2013 as far as what is happening in my kitchen.

not in my kitchen ….

I was so excited when my marrow plant started budding! But I have a tortoise and she ate her way through my marrow plants as well as my peas. I am now changing my garden yet again and so what was going to be a lavender bed is now going to be a vegetable planter. I have to get soil delivered for that which I will do when we get back from overseas. I will get this bed turned over for root vegetables which Stanley cannot destroy!

is some coconut water. I finally have a recipe in mind for it so hopefully soon I will be able to get it made and share the results with you if it works!
