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 […]

CSA Week Three and Four

July 25, 2013


Last week I went out of town. Luckily one of my wonderful neighbors was able to make the weekly pick-up, so I arrived home to find a fridge full of delicious veggies waiting for me. Week Three was slightly less abundant than usual, due to stretch of 90+ degree days, which tend to be hard […]

CSA Week Two

July 10, 2013


This week brought more delicious veggies, plus the first of many cabbages. I always struggle to use up cabbages… Some of the produce made it into breakfast this morning too. Spinach ended up in an omelet, and some fresh basil added an aromatic finish to balsamic drizzled apple slices.

Some of you may have been around last year when Accomplice 1,  Accomplice 2a, and I first put in our pool gardens.  (If you missed it check them out here.)  I went out to work on my pool on Thursday.  I was excited to find that a good number of earth worms have worked their […]

Gardening by the Moon

March 30, 2012


This last week has been very busy, but I did manage to get some gardening done, despite the chilly turn our weather has taken in Michigan.  This year I’m trying a new method to time my plantings, called gardening by the moon.  My Grandmother recommends it, and I trust her gardening advice.  To that end, […]
