My first real tomato of 2018

The Sungolds have been gangbusters. But this black krim was my first real ‘mater and it was delicious.

The sprouts are coming!

So, I can’t seem to get my brussels sprouts to grow well from seed. They germinate and then get all stringy and fall over or die. Three years in a row. And, I wanted to get them in the ground early. So, I didn’t wait for the local place where I love to get herbs etc.  Eagle Farms So I bought seedlings at Home Depot. (Gasp!) But they’ve been really good. I’ve Capt’n Jacked them weekly during pest season, but they have seemed to thrive in less sunny, less well drained bed. I just topped them on the 10th of Sept. (Because I’m writing this retroactively. But this pic was when I first noticed that they were really coming in on Aug. 20th.B.Sprouts

Back in the saddle!

I’ve been gone for a few years. Time has been tight with our second child in the picture. I’ve focused all my “extra” time on making the garden work. But I have been taking pictures all along. She’s 4 1/2 now and our oldest is 9 1/2. I’m going to try to go back and retroactively post my pics and do the same going forward. Probably not a lot of time for text but at least I’ll get back into it.

Bought a bass today ’cause I missed butchering.

Pan seared bass, poached potatoes, sauteed green beans and a blistered sungold tomato and basil sauce. Everything but the fish was from the garden!
