    We went up to the garden to water and talk about more plants to pick up to fill the rest of the boxes. It’s just luscious up there. We both became almost immediately hungry at the bounty that should begin in just a few weeks.

    I think these cornflowers are so pretty. I don’t remember if anyone even planted them, I think they just appeared one day. I could be wrong about that. I love their simplicity. A couple of weeks ago, Alison picked some for me and I put them in a

    After the hailstorm provided us our first bounty of kale (which is making a triumphant return, btw), we had to figure out what to do with it all. Of course you already saw the kale & ravioli soup, but that only took care of about a third of our harvest, so we still had a…

For the last nine months I have been taunted with foreign berries as far as Chile, and as much as I wanted them, I just couldn’t bring myself to support the global carbon footprint it represents.
