This Week’s Menu
This is truly our first week of harvest for 2020. Broccoli heads are about to roll! We should have most of our first rounds of broccoli harvested by this coming weekend. We have seed trays loaded with our next plantings, just waiting for a row or two to open up, so we’re ready to get the next show on the road. We eat a lot of broccoli in this house and most of what we’re harvesting this week will be consumed by our boys. The rest, along with planting #2 and #3 (and maybe #4 if the weather is good mid-fall) rolls out and is preserved for our Broccoli Cheddar Chive soup. It’s one of the best things about the new school year and school lunches! For big and little kids.
We’ve also been enjoying chard (an immense amount of chard!), kale, zucchini, fava beans, basil, sorrel, thyme, parsley, sage, strawberries and soon – blueberries! Our favorite of late has been pestos and sauces made with chard, basil, and herbs. We’ve been tossing them into salads and dressings as well. Just the best way to amp up a salad that might be getting a little boring.
This is a busy season and this year includes household projects and trying to pump out an occasional blog post. Who ever said that was easy?! I am struggling with these assignments …
With all that said, we do hope to have a pop-up menu in the next couple of weeks, so please look for our mailer. There might be something there that just speaks to you.
ENJOY THE SUNSHINE! STAY HEALTHY. EAT SOUP. SIP BROTH. GROW FOOD!!!
