happy potatoe planting day - woohoo! and a bunch of other odds and sods!
isn't that beautiful? you may see 24 tires...but i see 24 tires with potatoes planted in them - woohoo! the potatoes are planted and i just couldn't be happier! happy potatoe day to all!
the plastic-wrapped porch is sprouting all kinds of little seedlings! i have been trying very hard not to plant anything out too early...but i think i will start planting some stuff out tomorrow. we haven't had the temps drop to freezing for several weeks now and the 2 week forecast says the temps overnight will not go below 5C. so i am putting out the cold weather stuff.
made a monster lasagna that we ate the other night - yummeh!
had delicious hamburgers for lunch the other day - look at all that cheese!
and here's some kymberz chicken alfredo with mushroons, broccoli and cauliflower.
the beginnings of the making of some traditional style korean kimchi - i love kimchi!
of course, the Framboise Manor breakfast of champions - trouts and sprouts. we love this for breakfast and try to have it every morning. jambaloney is out fishing right now. hope he brings home a bucket full! we eat fresh sprouts with at least 2 meals a day. we love them!
and speaking of sprouts - i just received my order from a new sprout place. ever wonder what a year's worth of sprouts looks like? see below.
with shipping and taxes: $38.41
yes, you read that right. we will eat up some of these until we start sprouting our own seeds but the majority of these will go into food storage. this year i hope to try to let enough of our own veggies go to seed in order to have our own sprouted seeds for the following year. we are already sprouting our own radish seeds and they are deelish. and it's too easy to let a tire of radish flower, go to seed and then harvest them. we easily have 2 years worth of radish seed from one tire. saving seeds and then using them for sprouts - it's like a gift that keeps on giving!
