How to use our Sun Dried Tomatoes

Sun Dried Tomatoes (All Natural)
One of the things we love to do in the Home Farm Herbery Creativity Center Kitchen is to create our famous Sun Dried Tomatoes and when we do we are left with the best gourmet Sun Dried Tomatoes that have a sweet, distinctive and tangy taste and aroma. 

Our sun-dried tomatoes are a great staple to give a quick flavor boost to recipes, but you will need to first reconstitute them.

 Here's how:
Place sun-dried tomatoes in heat-proof bowl.
Completely cover with boiling water.
Let sit for 30 minutes until soft and pliable.
Drain and pat dry.

Reserve the soaking liquid to use in soups and sauces.
Refrigerate and use leftovers within three days or cover with oil and refrigerate and use within two weeks.
To reconstitute in oil, simply cover with a good-grade olive oil for 24 hours before using
Sun-dried tomato oil may be reserved to use in salad.

Just say NO to gene-altered foods


Planting for the Soul today


It was a great overcast grey sky morning and I was out at 6:30 am weeding, bringing out the about 12 old containers to be filled and then planted with the following varieties of Zinnias: Cactus Flowered Mix, Luminosa Pink, Orange King, Cherry Queen, Polar Bear, Purple Prince, Dahlia Flowered Mix, Lilliput Mix, Zinnia Scabiosa, and Canary Bird.

I love Zinnias and Sun Flowers!

Gloria arrived at 8 am and she and I created a new medium size flower bed and a new small flower bed where I planted Cosmos, Shasta daisy, Cleome and the following varieties of Sunflowers: Vanilla Ice, Santa Fe, Maya, Teddy Bear, Sunspot, Autumn Beauty Mix, Grey Stripe, Velvet Queen, and Lemmon Queen.  I also planted some of the sun flowers down by the orchard at the end of the Mediterranean herb beds.

I started a dozen or so seed geraniums in the green house now that I have some room.  I have never started geraniums from seed so it is another experiment.’

Gloria also tackled the CottageGarden which is always a mega weed magnet among the perennials.
