Due to the lack of good restaurant options I started rating them, then we decided that most of them stink and you don't want to hear me talk about 3 restaurants. Instead I am changing the direction of my blog. I am now going to focus on food that is hunted, gathered, grown(heirloom and organic), cooked, preserved, & occasionaly purchased.

Garden update 4-20-2011 - First Harvest
Well the garden has jumped this last week. The snow peas are beginning to bloom, the mesclun is 2-4" tall (I'll begin to harvest when everything is at least 3"), some of the lettuce I started in seed trays are 6-8" and could be harvested any time (I'll wait because we have lettuce from our CSA), I could start eating green onions or green garlic any time I need them too.
But the first harvest is Strawberries. I have picked 1 or 2 earlier, but today I picked about a cup of fresh berries.
Overview of the beds.
Lettuce with Japanese red mustard and a small tomatillo plant behind
New plumb tree
The climbing beans that I planted between the corn plants have already come up, I only planted them last week.
