Daily Harvest

This was the last tiny harvest before heading up North to spend time with our families.

A little salad for my lunch.

A couple of raspberries.

Daily Dinner

Jonathan thawed out roasted tomatoes from the summer and cooked them with fresh herbs. He made polenta and a baked beet neither of which are from the garden.
It was lovely eating summer again.

Daily Harvest

Rain and rain and rain, finally.

We are harvesting rain water in out barrels and tonight picked mustard and herbs for dinner in soup.

Daily Harvest

Today I wanted to make brownies to go with our afternoon coffee. I started melting the butter and chocolate when I realized that chicken strike = no eggs!

In an attempt to turn mustard greens into eggs I picked a cute bundle (Jonathan reports seeing similar bundles in the farmer's market for $3) and went out into our neighborhood looking to trade. The first neighbor either wasn't home, or she saw what I was carrying and didn't want that much veg in her life. The second neighbor opened the door, admired the greens and traded me for two eggs.

Thank you neighbors!

Daily Harvest

Arugula salad. Persimmons, pumpkin seeds and goat cheese vinegarette were added, and of that only the vinegar was home made.

Daily Harvest

Jonathan picked a little bit of mustard and cooked it down to freeze it.
He got 8 quart bags once it was cooked down.

Daily Harvest

Basil and onions for the morning eggs, and radishes, well, the package said "French breakfast radishes." Do the French really eat radishes for breakfast? We do.

Did it work?!

Daily Dinner

Came home from work, let the chickens out, and ate another 5 ripe raspberries! In December!

Friday dinner same as Thursday. Amazing we are enjoying tomatoes, now, in December!

How is this December?!?

Daily Harvest

I am having a hard time believing this, but I came home in the evening and found a tiny handful of ripe raspberries. This is not a picture of a ripe berry. I ate all of them.
It really throws off my idea of seasons to be picking raspberries, even just 5 of them, in December.

Daily Dinner

Thanks to the wonders of the freezer I made tomato sauce from garden tomatoes in December. The sauce has garlic and herbs from the garden. The noodles are made with a store bought egg. They shouldn't be up here.

What is going on ladies? Molting, bickering, no eggs.
