Asparagus and Chive Vinegar

We've had lots of rain this week and the garden is growing by leaps and bounds. This pot on the deck has some tumbler tomatoes, self-seeded lettuce and cilantro.

One summer project I planned was to make some chive vinegar. Vinegar plus chive blossoms, sit then strain and you're good. I think we put these in the jar on Saturday. It is supposed to take two weeks to leach all of the flavour out. A pretty colour and it smells good.

I also bought some asparagus at the market on Saturday to freeze. We managed to get 11 single-serving bags processed and frozen which add a nice taste of spring to winter pizzas and casseroles. There was one bag left from last year so I may do another couple of bunches this year.

The water we used to blanch them is sitting in the fridge awaiting its turn to become soup stock. I'm hopeful a couple of sunny days will let me get back out and on the weeding!
