Many gardeners look at rows of growing vegetables or fruits and imagine a harvest feast. My husband, R, gazes at the ripe apples or plump tomatoes and thinks: alcohol!
After several years of learning from our apple wine, R has ventured into the area of tomato wine. He recycled old wine bottles into a batch of about 15 last week.

Underneath the blueberries are some peas, arugula, and parsley. I also brought in some lavender. I've grown lavender for a few years, but this is the first year it has looked nice enough to notice.
Yesterday I picked a pint and a half of blueberries. I need to get rid of the blueberries in my fridge to make room for more, so I'm making a pie today!
I've never made a blueberry pie, but I'm banking on my belief that if you add enough sugar and butter to something, it can't taste bad. Wish me luck!
