Basil, Thyme, Rosemary & Wildflowers The Community Garden gets a lot more sun than my shady grove of a backyard and we’ve got the basil to prove it. I’ve harvested a ton of basil and every time I go back up there’s more to harvest. We don’t want the plants to get bitter, and we […]
Okay, Seven Arrows is possibly one of the coolest garden centers I have ever visited, although their website could use some love – it doesn’t come close to describing how undeniably refreshing this place is. Alison & Mac picked me up this morning to go to Seven Arrows & to pick strawberries, though by the […]
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 […]
Light and fluffy cornbread. Justin & I happened across a can (yes, a can) of vegetarian baked beans. What better thing to go with baked beans than cornbread? A few weeks ago I was researching bean pots because I really want to make baked beans from scratch. I love the idea of a giant simmering […]
A vegetarian sandwich on home-made wheat with a side of favas A few weeks ago we were invited to our Portuguese neighbors’ Memorial Day Weekend Barbecue cookout. This was when, in some sort of god-like orchestration, Justin & I were introduced to Josephina’s amazing Fava Beans in olive oil with crushed red pepper & garlic. […]
Justin & I took a saunter up to the Community Garden today to check on the plants, water, and see if there was anything we could harvest. The spigot has either been stolen or replaced with some funky gadget that we can’t access, so we couldn’t water. But thankfully, the Big Guy in the Sky […]
Mid-June in Rhode Island means “strawberry season” and we couldn’t be more excited to see a local berry, ever! 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.

Our downstairs neighbors (Jessica & Judah) invited us to pick blueberries with them in Warwick. Justin stayed home to work on some domestic projects, but I opted to go with. It was my first time to pick blueberries and I really had a good time. The evening air was thick and cool and it smelled […]
