Stuck in the middle
The jet stream is splitting thanks to El Nino, and we are happily in the dry part with storms heading north or south of us.
That means after feeding chores, I have some dry time to work in the garden. Yippee! Although working in the garden this time of year is just harvesting, it is nice to do the harvesting at a leisurely pace instead of trying to beat a rainstorm. I confess, I am a Food Renegade and this post is part of the Fight Back Friday edition for January 22nd. There is no cure… 😉
I dig vegetables each week from the “root cellar” which is my garden. I don’t weigh them, but I dig enough for the family cow, and for the house. An estimate of the weight is approximately 60 pounds per week.
Celeriac for soups and any vegetable dish. These roots have become a staple in our kitchen and the greens hold up all winter for celery flavoring. My celery never makes it past 20°F. So the stalks of fresh celeriac really have come through.
Brussels sprouts which are still holding quite good with no protection.
Next post: more foodie fodder – root chopping, and hay.
