Blanching! Shocking! Summer Veg Prep!

Beans. The humble bean – mighty nitrogen fixer and meaty green vegetable. They truly round out any meal the summer decides to dish up. Time and time again, I can remember a blah dish made WOW! with simply blanched beans, sauteed with garlic & herbs. Read More

She's Pissed at Pesto

There was so much to love about dinner tonight; free-range grilled chicken with rosemary and slices of lemon, Purple potatoes, baby fennel, colorful carrots, even baby artichokes simmered in vegetable broth, then grilled to perfection.

They’ll sit in the ground quietly and enjoy the hull-softening rain that tomorrow and the next couple of days will bring.Then, when the days warm up in about 10 days, they’ll stretch their arms and give a mighty push… Read More

Autumnal Awakenings, or, The Completed List

We did it! We made it to fall! We made it to the slow-down, to the time where we remember hobbies, rekindle friendships, get all of our computers backed up, receipts and bills filed, seeds stored, garlic planted, IRAs fully funded, and we start cooking elaborate meals again! Those things are so fun to come back to after being away from them for 7 months or so. However. I have… Read More

Sometimes pancakes are just the thing...

You know what they say – with great power comes great responsibility. I don’t consider myself having much power, but when I stumbled upon this recipe I felt like I unlocked a secret code that needed to be shared. So, here you go – the finale to the tale of a pancake lover’s journey from immediate gratification of that cakey breakfast goodness to 20 minutes later being starving again… Read More

Spring 2015 Has Sprung!

We have officially been on the right side of Winter now for a bit, and as I was diligently potting up my tiny tomatoes into larger pots, destined for the ground in a couple of weeks, it occurred to me that – we completely missed Mud Season this year! Ah, mud season – that oh so Vermonty time of year when it seems that Mother Nature hasn’t laughed enough at us… Read More

It’s early Spring, and I can’t help but think about the very first harvest of microgreens, coming up at the end of the week! Microgreens harvesting the first week of every April gets me all sentimental… Read More

Time for Reflection

It’s snowing outside, my fireplace is lit, my dogs are gently snoring next to me, and the mailman just dropped off another load of seed catalogs. It suddenly occurs to me that I haven’t given my impressions of my 2013 farm season yet, and I re-fill my mug of tea and tuck in to share some thoughts with you on just how wonderful this season left us feeling.
