Planting is the theme right now as we get the last of our summer crops in the ground. It certainly has been a challenge to get working in the ground with all of the rains we have had. Our melons and winter squash were planted last week, and we are currently trellising tomatoes and interplanting cucumbers with the tomatoes.
Sad news that I will not be baking anymore until we harvest our grains again in August. For those of you who love our bread, it will return later this summer. It is kind of a nice transition to harvesting and weeding all of our gardens anyway. I will have more time to give the growing more attention now that I am not baking. Our grains are almost out, and the whole reason I bake is because I can use our very own homegrown, certified organic, non GMO grains. We have a lovely field for harvest this summer, and I will start baking when it’s ready.
We do have lots of growing going on now too!
Snow peas!!!- Sugar snaps will be ready next week.
Beautiful red onions
Green and red romaine lettuce
Cauliflower and broccoli- light on both- end of the broccoli, beginning of the cauliflower!
Cilantro and Basil!!!!!
We have a nice cooler selection for those of you who have been enjoying it and here is my recipe for the week!
