I bought tomatillos at Publix, did some research on how to grow them, looked at a bunch of recipes, and today I made Salsa Verde! It was very easy to make and it was delicious!
This is the recipe I used, which I found on Pinterest:
I will definitely make this again. I even remembered to save some seeds before I roasted them so I can (hopefully) grow some tomatillos. I thought I had purchased seeds but what I had bought were cubanelle sweet pepper. Oops! Not quite the same.
What I didn't do today was finish adding more top soil and peat moss to the second hugelkultur garden project. I wrecked my back last weekend building it and need to give it another week's rest before I heave heavy bags of dirt around. I did manage to vacuum/mulch some leaves this morning before my back complained and will try to do a little more tomorrow. I mulched a few more naked areas so I feel like I made some progress.
Home Depot had pots of herbs marked down to $1.99 each so I bought more Basil, Cilantro and Rosemary, and also got some Thyme and Pineapple Sage which I don't have in the garden yet. They had a limited selection, but at least what was there was very healthy. I also couldn't resist the seed packets and bought some flower seeds - Zinnia, Black Eyed Susan and Coleus.
And, I got 20 more bricks for the border/edge project.
As usual, lots on the to do list!
