Hello blog. It’s been a while. I just popped in to share something seasonal from the garden. The kids actually discovered this.
Last year I put in a stevia plant with high hopes of harvesting and drying the leaves in case the zombie apocalypse leaves us without sugar. Of course I have not accomplished that task, mostly because the kids strip the plant bare. It really is very sweet and, clearly, a hardy plant. I don’t baby it at all.
So the other day the kids excitedly told me they had invented a candy cane and called me over to the veggie beds. There they picked a stevia leaf, then picked a mint leaf, put them together and popped them into their mouths. I had to try it.
YUM. It’s like eating Christmas. But healthy.
