This Week at the Market + Recipe

* Here is a recipe for a Salad that I have recently acquired an addiction for. It is very simple... 1/4 - 1/2 pound spinach 1/2 cup fresh chevre (goat cheese) or if you like chevre as much as I do put enough in so every bite can have some in it! 1 apple sliced

Lawn Salad and a New Door

* Time. I don’t know where it is all going. The temperature has been rising; we’ve been in the 80’s for several days now. Maybe I’m moving slower in this heat, my winter skin still not fully shed, but my summer brain listing all the beds that need weeding, the plants that need transplanting, the

Shhh….. I’m Hunting for Mushrooms

It’s our third week of hunting. We’ve been successful in bringing in the Wild Ramp, The over abundant dandelion, the fiddle head fern, the wood sorrel, the clovers, and even some cattail shoots. Some of these, like the fiddleheads and the ramps, have seasons that are about to end or have already ended, but for

Last week of May

This week on the farm has been a busy one. We’ve been planting, transplanting and seeding, building an egg mobile for our chickens, playing with goats, going to the market and hunting for wily wild edibles. Last Saturday was the first market where we brought something we actually grew this year. Cress, spinach, and radishes

Long Week

This week seemed to go by very fast, I'm not even sure where all the time went. Somehow though, it also seems like the week has been so very long and now on sunday with a week ahead of me I find myself wishing I could have another hour in the morning before my days

Foraged Harvest.

We did it. First farmer's market of the season accomplished. It got a little hectic on friday trying to be ready for it, and we might have had the starting time wrong and got there a tad late, but it was all right. Our foraged harvest was well accepted and we sold a good number

We adopted an orphan.

The warm weather is winning. It was in the 80's this week, my delicate winter skin got an unpleasant surprise when I wore a tank top in the hot sun for 8 hours last wednesday. I am still sitting tenderly to keep my back form touching the chair behind me. The warm weather brought more

Pregnant or Precocious?

_ So spring is still being cruel. Snow this morning and frost for the last three nights. We had an insane wind storm that blew the top of our composting toilet, ...scattered all the plastic in the garden ....and lifted our solar shower over the goat fence and into their pen. It was one hell

Spring is a Fickle Beast

We've stepped backward into cold again. The poor daffodils that tried to blossom in the warm sun of last week are cursing themselves for thinking it was safe enough to come out of the safety of their buds. We've planted peas, arugula, claytonia, spinach, and mache outside. Our onions were going to go out yesterday

It is melting. We had a week of snow and freezing and muck and now it is finally melting away. We've planted our peas and radishes out in the garden beds. We had to stick some very cold fingers into partially frozen ground to do it, but they are in and with this warm spring
