Promise for the Future

I think one of the reasons I love gardening so much is because of its promise for the future. The anticipation of the harvest, of looking forward to opening the jar of sauce or jam keeps me coming back for more.

I’m hoping to make my own extracts this year from herbs I’m growing. I already made vanilla extract, but have not tried it yet. I still have some from the store to get through.

Mint extract, anyone? I planted the mint in a barrel to hopefully keep it contained. I hope it comes back next year!

I was outside earlier this evening, just staring at the plants and thinking of all my plans for fresh foods straight from the garden and what I can do to preserve them.  My husband came out and asked me what I was studying.

The future, honey. Just the future.
