Sounds like the Eichers are enjoying the weather and very busy. Kevin, Lovina mention a tea plant. I don't know what they are, can you tell me what it is?
Barb, she is really (don't mean this disrespectfully) misusing the term..it's not tea per se...she is growing spearmint or comfrey which is then steeped in hot water with tea....so she is growing the herbs to make herbal tea...
Wooo I love Spearmint of course I buy spearmint and peppermint tea from the grocery..bet its better with this...I'm always buying sour cream for something think I'll try Louvina's recipe for it....a horn of cheese would not last long around me that would be all I would eat...lol great reading Louvina's story today.
The rhubarb bread sounds delicious - it makes me wish we had space for a garden. Rhubarb in the store (when you can get it) is so expensive!
many years ago my grandmother and great aunt would grow spearmint in their veggie gardens. this was back in the 50's and before.
we would grow parsley in our window boxes in the back porch during
spring and summer.
I had a veggie garden for many years. I no longer have it, since we get
lots of voles & rabbits.
The weather has been so nice it is tempting to start gardening. But I have seen snow and ice in April. Cool weather crops might be OK to plant though. I am interested in how the solar freezer works. Did they buy a special solar unit made for the freezer or did they do a DIY project? It would be nice to know how hooking a freezer to a solar unit was done.
Dandelion salad, wow that is how my mother made it. It brings back many fond memory's.
I tried to find the recipe for Lovina's Sour Cream that she mentioned in her recent column. The ones I found online all called for different ingredients. Does anyone have her recipe that calls for Miracle Whip, vinegar, milk and salt? I need to know how much of each ingredient in order to make it. Thanks!
HAT HAPPENED TO THE TWO SISTERS WHO HAS BEEN MENTIONED ALL THRU LOVINA HEWS LETTERS. THEY WERE THERE ALL THE TIME TO HELP PUT NOW NOTHING IS EVER MENTIONED ABOUT THEM.
