it`s the time of year for beautiful days!
here`s today`s daily harvest basket:
that`s green onions, a red onion, yukon gold potatoes, red chieftain potatoes, a ton of peppers to be turned into pickles for jambaloney, a bunch of peas, garlic with scapes, and nasturtium flowers to be eaten with stuffed with trout.
i love garlic scapes as a centerpiece on the table.
jambaloney picked me a bunch of mint too.
you just can`t beat steak and a stirfry!
a great snack - shrimp and homemade shrimp cocktail sauce!
i put in a ton of horseradish because we looooove the burn!
and bulgogi and kimchi:
we looooove kimchi! and like the koreans do, we serve several kinds with a proper bulgogi meal! i love making different kinds of kimchi - it really is soooo good for you!
how about a self-seeded oregano plant in the middle of our little concrete deck? soooo beautiful!
self-seeded st. john's wart in between our pots of this and that:
marshmallow and evening of primrose:
my 2 favourite onions:
peas and pea flowers:
a small field of fireweed:
i have no idea what this flower is but if anyone has a guess - i'd love for you to leave a comment.
otherwise, i'm gonna have to search the interwebs. yawn.
and another beauty that i don't know:
again, if anyone knows what this is - please leave a comment.
all in all, everything at the Manor is beautiful. even the overgrown grass, the horrible driveway, and poor jambaloney down in the basement (more like a h*ell hole!) trying his darndest to fix it - it's been a lovely week.
i can't wait to show you our new boat motor and stand that jambaloney built - and we'll be taking you all for a ride on the river tomorrow! it's going to be awesome!
sending love, as always! xoxox
