Springtime pasta

Things are just getting off the ground in the vegetable department right now, but there are little handfuls of things to pull – peas, a small zucchini, some parsley or chives, a carrot. Today I got a zucchini before it got huge, and it had an amazing bloom that I thought would make a nice garnish for some leftover pasta. Vegetables quickly sautéed with butter, then a good squeeze of lemon and  toss it with the pasta.

A harvest of 9 cherries

Our goofy cherry tree from Lowe’s that has 5 varieties grafted together on one tree produced its first crop this year. Nine cherries, and one more that looks like a bird found it. The good news is that there was a recipe for a Sour Cherry Old Fashioned that I clipped from the paper this weekend that only calls for 2 cherries. Perfect, it’ll be a good night.

Tangled up in orange

Awfully beautiful pair of carrots, just in time for our 15th anniversary this month.

Alicia, you’re the only farmer’s wife and partner in crime for me.

Wildlife

I’ve been trying to get the kids into stop motion animation this summer. I think they’ll like this one. (see the animation after the jump) (more…)

The princess and her eggs

We’ve been working hard keeping the weeds at bay and getting the garden going this spring, but apparently neglecting the egg collecting. I just gathered what I can only assume is a new record — 26 eggs. Must have been a pretty uncomfortable pile for our setting hen to be trying to keep warm.
