What's for dinner?


Not sure...but it's going to involve what I pulled out of the garden today.

(and chicken:)

Onions, garlic, and white wine and you've got a saucy dinner. Those look beautiful.

We cut asparagus this morning and had asparagus soup and homemade rolls for dinner. Nothing beats home grown!

Our onions and garlic are still babies, but I probably could've added some green onion. I actually ended up making a pureed carrot dish that Steven loves (it was his birthday).

Asparagus soup sounds yummy! Unfortunately, our plants are only in their 2nd year so I don't think we're supposed to harvest very many. But we may get enough for one meal this week:)

Uh, wow. I found your blog through a comment on a friends facebook from someone I don't know...so here I am. :) How deep does the good soil go down in your raised planters? And what type of soil are you putting in them? Your plants and veggies are beautiful.

Hey Chris and Mary....thanks for stopping by! The yard was knee high weeds just 2 years ago but the soil was pretty easy to break up and much less clay than is normal for our area. We added a truckload of purchased compost the first year (needed to get stuff planted fast) and last year added another good helping of homemade compost which we'll continue to do every time we replant. Never have had the soil tested but it does seem to be doing fine with organic amendments and crop rotation. The only downside is that the weeds definitely love it too.....sigh.
