Weed whacking & spinning

I had a pair of younger women who wanted to work doing some weed whacking.   Do you see all those nettles?   We have a good acre of them that no animal will touch, so they have to be manually cut back about 3-4 times during the summer.   While they did this

I made some brownies

Cut and dehydrated  half a quart of parsley for the winter

Canned 26 pints of black beans for quick cooking, and relaxed while spinning this gorgeous wool with angora blended in.   It is so soft and wonderful feeling.   I hope your day was as beautiful.

  1. Looks like a VERY productive day for all of you!
    We have a bit of nettle in the back yard – my niece uses it to make tea, which is supposed to, among other things, “cure” shingles – but it has to be young plants for that. I’ve never had shingles, and the thoughts of drinking nettle tea make me shiver, so I eradicate it when I can.
    I’m glad to see that you’ve got very competent helpers – hope they got some of the brownies!

    How do you dehydrate your parsldey. It looks like there is water in a jar? Or did I misunderstand and you are rehydrating it.
