I haven't shared much about our garden, have you noticed? I didn't feed the plants much after planting them, other than lots of water and sunshine. I think the plants were stunted. They didn't grow much for the first few weeks. A little, or rather a lot, of worm castings helped to fix that, and although they are now definitely growing, I doubt we will be able to harvest much this year. I'm not too upset, because this year was our first year; the year for making mistakes, learning the most, and being excited for anything edible.
Beside two more miniature strawberries, we harvested some kale and chard this week. I made a copycat version of the potatoes and kale served by communal/pizzeria 712 at the dinner club held at jacob's cove a few weeks ago. I love being able to make this dish with new red potatoes from the farmer's market and greens from our own garden. it feels good, eating your own food.
check out the recipe at the zupas website today.
we will be celebrating our fifth anniversary with good food and fun outings including melissa's class at the farm tomorrow. it's been a good five years. our best, actually.
