Cooking and More Cooking

June 25th, 2017 at 03:39 pm

I'm hosting a birthday lunch for my university pals tomorrow and have been cooking in spurts all day. I also took DD and two friends strawberry picking yesterday so have made three batches of freezer jam, and have more to go. So far I've made garlic scape soup from the scapes in my CSA box, quinoa salad, and am about to embark on chicken salad with dried cherries and pecans. I've still got cake and Greek salad to throw together tomorrow, but will need to do a bit of housecleaning too.

Tomorrow is also my last evening class until late August. I will still have some capstone projects to read, but it's nice to have NO students to think about.

Any advice beside chicken wire to keep the bunnies out of my raised bed gardens? The little ones have munched their way through my pansies, Italian parsley, and any number of other things.

    Ha. I commented on my blog to your question about the bunnies...my suggestion was chicken wire! That's what I'm using and it has worked beautifully.

    And now I know what a garlic scape is...didn't know that term.

    My husband uses something called liquid fence. He gets it at places like Rural King, Lowe's, and a local feed store. It is a natural product with garlic and rotten eggs and you can spray it on plants and it doesn't hurt them, but it smells badly and that has been the only thing that has kept the bunnies away from his vegetables. You can make the stuff yourself, but it takes a few days since the eggs have to ferment. He has to reapply it anytime it rains, but he feels that is the best way since his vegetable garden is in the front yard (too shady in the back) and a fence wouldn't look appropriate.

    I think I'll pass on the smelly stuff. Chicken wire here we come.
