Lots of color in the kitchen! Beet Hummus, Grilled Kohlrabi Chips, and Zucchini Pancakes

My first time having success growing banana peppers! I love 'em in sandwiches and on pizza so every year I plan to put them up as pickled peppers. Usually my plants produce a single pepper at a time, though, so I add them to Layered Summer Vegetable Appetizer (recipe here:…

Kirsten dreams of beet greens, fat carrots and sweet black raspberries**

My eyes lit up when I spied the beet greens descending into my crate at farm share pick up this week. The greens were attached to beets [which I tolerate] and as soon as I got home & took a photo I quickly cut them off and stored them separately. Greens last longer when…

Sometime great meals don't make it onto the blog, and sometimes non-farm share recipes do.

I consider it a personal challenge to use or put up the contents of the CSA farm share box before the next pick up. We get a large share and some weeks it's a breeze (hello, August) while other times of the year it can be arduous (hello, June). I find it particularly hard…

DIY Study Group: Botany 101

Hello all,



A few years back, I organized a DIY permaculture study group, for serious students who couldn't afford an official course. It was great fun, we all learned a lot, and I enjoyed the way that leading the group challenged me in my own studies. Now I am interested in doing the same thing for botany!



I am an avid learner, and a total plant geek. I didn't go to college, so all of my education has been at home-- with good books, web resources, and self-made homework,… Continue

Summer Water

            The Pacific Northwest is defined by our relationship with water; we have two seasons—cool and wet and warm and dry. Settlement is along rivers and our summers are cooled by the sea breeze that sweeps inward in the late afternoons. During wet winters, we may not see the sun or moon for months, but we enjoy hunkering down under the sheltering clouds, walking home in the misty dark. Then, one day, somewhere between Memorial Day and the Forth of July, the rains stop. The clouds…

Cherries & Strawberries, Mustard Greens & Garlic Scapes, and School's Out . . . for Summer!

Our days are alternating between unseasonably cool--love!--and surprisingly hot--not acclimated yet--so eating has been all over the place. I realized more than being a seasonal eater I am a weather-dependent eater. I don't care if the calendar says June, if it's…

Reisling now being served.

Finally got the wine to clear using an age old method...Egg Yolk. One egg yolk did in 7 days what chemicals couldn't do in 21 days. Nice tartness with a clean full apple secondary taste. Very smooth and way too drinkable!? Hefeweizen and Witbier next in the fermenter and on to a 2013 Mosel River grape Reisling.
