CSA Week Five

August 5, 2013


Some very tasty recipes came out of this week’s delivery. I’m having a bit of trouble getting images to work though. I can upload them just fine, but they won’t insert into my posts. It may be some kind of glitch with my browser, as I am able to include them if I post them […]

Beanless Vegetable Chili

July 28, 2013


The title of this post alone might be enough to send some die-hard chili fans into apoplectic fits. Not only is this chili meatless, it doesn’t even contain beans.

CSA Week Three and Four

July 25, 2013

CSA Week Two

This year’s CSA is through Monroe Family Organics, which has the distinction of being the only one in the area with USDA certification. They’re also lovely people who really seem to care about their shareholders. […]

Massive Garden Update

May 31, 2012


The last week has been a busy one for gardening. Weeding, watering, and planting galore! Here, let me show you: If you’re curious, the tomato varieties are Cosmonaut Volkov, Silver Fir, Pineapple, Green Sausage, and Czech Bush. The melons are Banana Melons. Temperatures are getting into the low 40s at night, I hope my plant […]
