You know we’re clearly wrapping up summer 2021 items in the blogging folder because I can go forth and show off Redflare’s homemade spaghetti sauce from early September.
Those of you familiar with my eating habits will know that I don’t even usually eat spaghetti with sauce. I just prefer it with grated cheddar cheese and some parmesan. Maybe some meatballs. This sauce though. This sauce was amazing. I can’t recall what we actually had with it now, but clearly I’m not usually a sauce-type but absolutely loved this one.
One of the trees this year has shared fantastic fruit with us. The other two… well, one seems a bit spotty and moldy for some reason and the other just didn’t produce much. Probably need more of our pollinators to be developed enough to actually produce flowers.
Doesn’t stop me from admiring their growth as the summer progresses.
The garden hasn’t been cooperating much this summer. It’s mostly because the weather has been weird too. We didn’t get a spring, so with Redflare’s heat sensitivity it’s harder to get out there and plant all the starts.
We did manage to plant some new asparagus roots this spring to expand our patch for the future.
