From The Garden

I went out into our garden to harvest some veggies and this is what I found....tomatoes, winter squash, melons, eggplant, zucchini and peppers. I also went to the farmers market this morning and bought a local pasture raised broiler chicken, potato's, apples, peaches, Asian pears, fig jam, local wildflower honey and Spring Hill Farm Jersey butter and cheese curd. Yum, yum, yum.....

I am roasting all of the veggies and freezing some for later this month.

The girls have given me an abundance of fresh eggs.

Vinegar Mother

My fabulous co-worker Mindy gave me a red wine vinegar mother it is this really awesome slime that when left over red wine is added to makes the wine into vinegar. I will be turning leftover Pinot into vinegar in no time.

Summer Harvest

The summer harvest has been wonderful this year. Eggplant, Peppers, Zucchini, Green beans and now we are finally getting some tomatoes. The garden is starting to die back a little now. The Melons, Okra and beans are done and I am getting ready to plant some winter veggies...Beets, Carrots, Kale, Lettuce, Peas (again), Chard and Leeks as well as onions and garlic for next years harvest.
