Just a little bit of random today. I spent sometime outside today and had my camera so I took video of my ducks and their first time outside on the grass. Two weeks old and getting big already. Need to be outside in the fresh air! Aren't they cute??!!
Also, during my time in the garden I took video of my view. Lots of rain lately so lots of water. So peaceful today, no one driving by and all I hear are the birds and the "rubber band" frogs! Can you hear them?
I also did my share of harvesting from my herb garden. It ended up with Chocolate mint, Sage, Lemon thyme, Thyme and Oregano. They are now drying up! These will mostly be used for culinary purposes. Much fresher, tastier and cheaper than the dried herbs you get at the supermarket!
One more thing today - I harvested from the Stevia plant we have. I took the fresh leaves and placed them in a jar with grain alcohol where they will sit for two days. After that time I will gently boil off some of the alcohol and reduce it down some to make an extract. It can be used after that to sweeten many things!
