Week 38 - Heat!

Homemade fish and chips

Stir fry with leftover chicken and zucchini, mushrooms, onions from the farmers' market and carrots and kale from our garden. Served with rice.

Not-so-green chili stew with tomatillos, potatoes, and hominy from our garden, onions from the farmers market, foraged mushrooms, and Hatch green chilies direct from the farm in New Mexico.

Whole wheat pizza with homemade/homegrown sauce, onions, mushrooms, zucchini and bacon

Pork chops with baked potato and Brussels sprouts.

It was a HOT HOT HOT week! Well, at least the beginning of it was. Unfortunately it made it too uncomfortable to cook inside. On the bright side, the heat really kicked the garden into gear. The corn is now 7' tall - no tassels yet though. We have squash blossoms, tomatoes on the vines, flowers on the cucumbers, tomatillos eggplants and beans. I'm not so worried now about this coming Friday when we GIVE UP BUYING ALL FOOD. We've also struck a couple of bartering deals with a couple of farmers at the farmers' market. Fruit is going to be a problem for us. We just don't have any yet though we're trying to connect with people who would be willing to barter. Anyone out there in our area want to barter eggs or bread for fruit? :D

  1. I'm glad you are able to do this, I am hoping to be able to try this out ourselves in the next year. Hopefully! Good luck on the no buying groceries when you start!
