Mary, Mary quite contrary… July 3, 2009

Filed under: Modern Homemaking,Shal's Monthly Menus — mothersandothers @ 9:39 am

Time for me to regain my meal sanity by getting back to the monthly menu planning.

I almost have a whole year’s worth now so this month I mostly cut and pasted from the plans of past months. Easy right?

First, we finished the garden! Our watering strategy took some doing and doing again, but I think we figured out a nifty little drip system. We turn it on and show it to all who come over. Then we added the pavers and stones (all from Home Depot).

Here’s what’s growing. I have a feeling we’re going to be out there a lot:

Eight varieties of lettuce (most of which I’ve never heard of)

Mrs. Burns’s Lemon Basil

Night Phlox (smells like cake supposedly)


Lemon Mint

Pineapple Mint

Aunt Molly’s Ground Cherries



Long Red Onions

Golden Sweet Peas

Maule’s Red Hot Peppers

Greek Oregano

Mini Chocolate Bell Peppers

Heirloom Tomatoes (a couple varieties)


Amaiah drew pictures on the markers for me


Can’t wait to show you how it grows!
