Garden Update … Harvest Kitchen


The gardens are looking bedraggled but they still have a ways to go.  This is harvest time and that means a lot of kitchen time.  This morning, I picked a big load of tomatoes and made another pot of sauce.  The cucumbers are dwindling  but I had enough to ferment another 2 quarts of pickles.  I am leaving the peppers, hoping for some  hot weather to turn them red.

The blackberries are almost done and the raspberries are just starting.


Meanwhile, I pulled my sourdough starter out of the fridge and ground up some rye for it.  I’ll keep it fed and out on the counter.  In a couple days, I’ll be ready to make bread and it  will be nice and bubbly.   Then, I took a few minutes to strain my Echinacea tincture, bottled it up and labeled it.

I also made some buttermilk biscuits to go with  the soup we had  for dinner tonight.  I used the recipe from “Nourishing Traditions” by Sally Fallon.  They didn’t raise very high but they were flaky and delicious.


Busy day and I love it!

  1. I spent the day in the garden today and loved every minute of it! You have been so very busy. I will be bottling beets soon. After cutting back perennials I picked a cabbage, cucs, tomatoes, and a sweet walla walla onion. Made a delicious cucumber salad and coleslaw to go with our bbq beef for dinner. Staying busy keeps us out of trouble, right? lol! Thanks for visiting my blog!
