Greetings from the Garden! This week's CSA box has lettuce and greens, potatoes, tomatoes, sweet potatoes, onions and garlic, peppers, and cabbage or Brussels sprouts
Field Notes. Rain - lots of rain. Ken found a window of opportunity and got the garlic planted. He has been harvesting roots and I am burying them in sand in the root cellar for winter boxes.
This week the pigs go to the locker. We always feel sadness and relief - Ken has an extra hour or more each day now.
From the Kitchen. Greens! We have greens each day - some times raw for salad and sometimes wilted with cream or vinegar or a dressing. Ken has been making soup - a potato cabbage soup and a creamed carrot and other vegetable soup. We often have soup in the morning as it is warming and the egg production drops sharply when the days get short.
I have been making jam now that we could get some organic lemons. In side by side comparisons we can taste the difference in sugar and lemons - mainstream conventional vs. organic.
'Til Next Week, Judith
