After the never-ending winter, spring and summer seem to be moving along so quickly…
I can hardly believe that it is CSA time again! It seems like just yesterday that our farmer was sending out the spring newsletters giving us a farm and planting update…and now it is already time to bring in some spring […]
My little Maus started junior kindergarten this year, and although her kindergarten is all day, 5 days a week, we decided that we would still have frequent days at home. Not only would these days at home be rest days to unwind a little, they would also be perfect times to […]
This has been my first summer making jam, and after jam that I thought was a little too sweet (Serviceberry) and jam that just wasn’t quite right (apricot), this third jam I am really pleased with.
We have a funny plum tree in our front garden. There are 3 varieties of plum grafted onto a single rootstock. […]

We’ve been loving our CSA share this summer…from some absolutely delicious garlic scapes at the start of the summer, to tasty pattypan squash and now an abundance of beetroot. The last couple of weeks beetroot has been on the “choice” table, the table from which we are able to choose 2 […]
