Garden Notes

Here’s today’s project.    The food forest attached to the community garden has two beautiful elder shrubs.     I was out at around 8:00 this morning to beat the heat and humidity.   I pulled off 18 heads, and you wouldn’t even know I was there.

Making a sugar syrup was not my idea of the best thing to do on a humid July morning, but I pushed on through, and everything is currently steeping for the next 24 hours.    I’m really looking forward to seeing how it comes out.

Playing a little catch up here – three weeks ago was Romaine lettuce, baby bok choy, fava greens, and micro greens.

The next week was the final meat shipment, which was veal stew meat, chicken quarters and pork chops.

This Tuesday was the final greens delivery, which was Savoy cabbage, Swiss chard, leeks and pea shoots.

This week’s haul was baby kale, arugula, radicchio and micro greens.

Last week, for the monthly meat share, I got ground beef, chicken breast, country spare ribs and a chuck steak.

This week’s haul (with terrible picture quality because it’s now quite a bit darker after work) was purple cauliflower, kale, herb salad mix, baby arugula and some sort of Asian brassica whose names completely escapes me (and I can’t find my notes).

Harvesting continues.    It’s pretty much every other day now, so I’m not posting it real time.    The above are from 9/7, 9/8, 9/9, 9/10, 9/12, 9/14 and 9/17.   The acorn squash on the 12th was a “No, seriously I have so many I couldn’t possible figure out what to do with them all, please for the love of god, take it” gift from one of the other gardeners at community garden.

I grew poblanos this year hoping I could manage an entire casserole of my own stuffed peppers.     That happened last week, and I still have leftovers.
