Weekend Wrap Up

All of a sudden, it's Monday again. Time does slip away when you're not looking. I can honestly say that I used a lot of that time if not wisely, but well. I think. We'll see. I'm tired.
This is a Mommy, I would say.

 I saw somewhere that someone planted tomato slices and it made tomato plants. I had a tomato that was somewhat over ripe and I just had to see if I could do that. Yes, I know it's pretty late to consider, but I thought if it did work, I could bring the pot inside at night after the frost starts. You know?
Of all the flowerpots I painted during my painting passion, we could only find 2 to pot the impatiens. They were getting kind of unhappy, maybe they will survive. The other will go into the little rail thing DH bought, as soon as I can get to it. 
 I began my first batch of blueberry wine? There are many different recipes for blueberry wine with various ways of treating the blueberries to start the must. There were also differences of opinion as to how much sugar it would need and if it needed yeast or not. I read, pondered, and read some more. I am not exactly a expert. I opted to go in the back yard and picked some concord grapes (about a cup) to add for the yeast that is on the grapes naturally. They say it's not on the blueberries. Sigh. Well, all it cost me was the sugar, so it it doesn't make wine ... One can only hope.

I hope the coming week is a good one for you! Tomorrow, I plan on really taking it easy - unless I decide to make that lemon pie from scratch, I've been thinking about it. Not so much making it, but eating it. Ha Ha!

  1. Ohhh I hope your wine works.
    And lemon pie sounds yummy.
    Give the impatiens a hair cut and fertilise with liquid food and they will come back

  2. I'll be surprised if your tomato slices don't grow. Way back when we had a compost heap, we often got tomatoes and potatoes growing in there. One time we turned the heap and got a whole bucket of small to medium size potatoes.

    1. I'm hoping the tomatoes work - years ago, we tossed some tomatoes on the worm bed and ended up with lots of 'volunteers' in the spring.

  5. I had a piece of lemon pie yesterday at a restaurant. Sometimes you just have to scratch that itch. I've never heard of blueberry wine but it should work.

    1. The infamous 'They' say blueberry wine is delicious. I am hoping that's the case. I did order some wine yeast and will try another small batch with frozen blueberries when it comes. I'll just have to make space for it on my counter so I don't disturb it.
      Hopefully, I'll get at that pie this afternoon!

  7. Good luck with the wine, sounds interesting and I'm sure fun to do, but I favor a nice Merlot.
