how is it the end of August? seems like just yesterday....

It was brought to my attention that I have very poor blog attendance lately, and at the rate I'm going there will be no posts in September, and -2 posts in October, so this is my attempt to change that.

garden news: harvested my first cantaloupe today!!! typical weekly harvests include
cherry tomatoes
huge, beautiful heirloom tomatoes
yellow squash
swiss chard
a few peas
some fennel
and a ton of herbs

I've been working with the farmer across the street to make more of an official relationship between the Kitchen Garden Intern and her farm- we are working on having the Intern work a few hours a week over there to have a gardening mentor, and really see how a farm runs- super exciting.

also working on drying herbs, too humid outside though, so testing a few different inside spots...

it's been busy times in the kitchen: last week was the graduation for our 3 month long natural building Intensive- they did such a great job on the house they built, amazing(check it out)!

had two amazing friends visit, thanks Lee and Jenny for bringing such fun and good energy to YM.
in my next post: photos Jenny took of our adventures, and some start to finish shots of my morning making breakfast pizza

  1. Your harvest sounds so tasty. I can only hope to aspire to 5% of that (if I ever get anything planted - it took us 2 months to build our raised bed!)
