    That sounds yummy... the last batch of bone broth I made turned to jelly in the fridge.... and I thought I had done something wrong... apparently not!
    no that is the aim. the more jelly the better. and these were venison hocks, not bone broth so i was very pleased. the hocks are an absolute nightmare to cut all the silverskin off to turn into tiny thin slivers of meat so i slow cook them instead. you could probably remove the meat off the bone and shred it up a bit and make a very nice meat pie with it and the gravy. and maybe some cheese. venison and cheese pie is very yuumy. i just remove the pastry. something about cooking a pie. not sure what. but you need the pastry to make the inside work. covering the top with something doesnt come out the same.

    Did a bit of a run yesterday. Was planning on doing 8, but after my squats on Thursday my left hammie was feeling a bit tweeky. I ran on Friday, and it waws kinda sore then and still sore on Sunday, so I backed off of the distance to rest it a bit... I probably could have done the distance, but didn't want to chance injuring myself and then having to not run at all, which would throw my training schedule off. So I took it easy. Then shoveled mulch..... fortunately there wasn't much to shovel..

    Saturday I sprayed the garden with rotten fish and garlic.... oh yum that! I got some kelp and fish emulsion fertilizer from Neptune's Harvet, and a garlic based insect repellant. so I sprayed the garden... now all the neighborhood cats will be in the garden! Maybe the garlic will keep them out....

    Harvested my first kabocha squash, entirely by accident. I was lifting it to look at the bottom side of the squash, and the neck snapped off of the vine.... luckily it was ripe. I have buttternut and delicata squash that are almost ripe. Harvested a little bit of arugula, and Ihave some swiss chard that is ready. The chinese cabbage and the bok choy are getting close to being ready as well.... Still getting tomatos too.

    The veggies for the resturant are coming along. the mizzuna is about 4" tall, which is a harveastable size... the mizuna is a llittle shorter, but not far behind. Radishes are doing well too....

    Know what you're saying about aggrevating an injury, done me back (again) last week putting me training shorts on, ironically! Want to resume doing something as I hate being idle, but don't want to make it worse!

    Why do you spray your garden with fish guts and garlic?

    The fish and kelp have amino acids and micro nutrients that aren't in regular fertilizer. The garlic acts is supposed to act like an insect repellant. According to the company literature, bugs react to garlic like people react to ammonia...

    Did you mix the fish stuff with the earth? or did you just placed it on top?

    I hear you, living in somewhat tight quarters, I imagine my neighbours would have a lynching party if I tried it, saying that a 100ft garden, includung an excuse for a garage isn't quite a farm!

    no, actually is was a liquid mixed at 1/4 cup to a gallon of water. Nearest neighbor is about 100 yards from the garden, and the smell disipated over a day or so. They do have a kelp meal, but I have a liquid fertilizer.
