  • We made it through Littlest's Girl Scout Gold Award project! Whew! She was doing the work, but being the driver/proofreader/worrier takes its toll.

    Last night we had rainbow chard from the garden for dinner. I chopped the stems of two stalks and sauteed them in olive oil, added two slices of bacon, chopped, and when the stalks were tender, threw in twelve chopped leaves and some water, letting them steam until they were tender. Then I removed the lid from the pan, and let it cook some more, until almost all the liquid was gone. Added a dash of salt and a capful of balsalmic vinegar. SO GOOD! I'm glad I made a big batch, so that I could have seconds, and finish the leftovers for breakfast this morning. Also starring: ham and scalloped potatoes.

      • It was beet greens today. Well, also beets, potatoes, green beans, fried apples, and pork, but it was the beet greens I was swooning over. They make my spirit happy.

        Almost gave up on my yoga this morning, when my muscles told me in no uncertain terms that the gardening I've done this week, was MORE than enough exercises. Pushed through to the end anyway.

        Littlest is baking a wedding cake for a friend today. She's been at it for fifteen hours. :O

            • so jealous of the garden.

              Wedding cakes take time, that is why they are soo pricey. When I do cakes I usually plan to freeze the cake itself at least overnight because they get moister that way for some reason. Fridge dries them out, but the freezer moistens them, go figure.

                No, there is not!

                • The cake was beautiful, but, boy, what a job. She is caked out.

                  Rain, rain, rain here. I'm so thankful that our reservoirs are filling up, but I wish there were a dry day or two in between, so the ground could recover. My lawns are more like marshes. Glad my garden beds are raised.

                  Fell of the wagon with the wedding cake, and am having a hard time dropping grain items from my diet. They are the devil-- the sweet, sweet devil.

                    • doesn't make sense that evolutionarily we have such a hard time eating what is healthy and avoiding what is less than healthy, but that is how it is with me as well, once off the wagon it is hard to get back on.

                        • Making SenfGurken(Mustard pickles) today, and jam. The pickles look great, the jam less so. Why won't it thicken!!

                          • How is the garden doing in the summer heat? I'm guessing your pickles are from your own produce?

                            • Yes, the pickles are from our own cucumbers. They are still producing. The beans are slowing down, and the tomatoes have stopped setting not that we are hitting 92+ each day. But the fruits that are on the vine are ripening. We have fresh tomatoes every day. Still getting chard and kale(amazingly!), and I am starting new rows of lettuce and radishes every other week. Our first watermelon is about 6 inches long! And the kohlrabi is plumping out. So, going great guns, still, in spite of the heat. I think our hugelkultur beds really help.

                              The jam turned into ground cherry candy instead of jam. Very strange.

                              • Just popping in when I see you have posted. The Hugelkultur Beds caught my eyes. I checked them out. I miss a magazine I used to subscribe to and, has sense ceased to be, called Organic Gardening. This idea reminds me very much of that magazine.
