We started the day cutting vegetables for this week’s soup.
Here is a bucket of shu shu, a new vegetable for me. The inside is light green and has the consistency of zucchini, maybe a little more firm. It has one seed in the center.
Anything with ridges is harder to peel, and shu shu also needs to be cut and the seed removed. I got there early (notice, very few people!)….
…so I was able to find a sharp knife and a peeler (truly rare commodities) and laid claim to a bucket of carrots (easy to peel). That is my blue water bottle, above, and my bucket of carrots, below.
Friends soon arrived to peel with me.
Sam does some creative carving as well!
Once peeled, the carrots are cubed using this tool. A trained professional places the carrot on the grid, then lowers the handle. The carrot cubes drop into a bucket below.
As folks slowly arrive, peeling becomes the morning social gathering.
After peeling veggies, I sat in the garden, went to the waterfall (3rd time – I love it there!), and joined a group doing some truly uplifting spiritual singing (led by three guitar players). So fun!
Tonight, alot of us met up at Frutti’s for dinner and dessert.
Tomorrow, we see John of God again.
Love and blessings,
