Spring is here .... are you sure?

Spring is here..yeah right!?  Darn snow and cold and wind, icky!  We can't wait to get the seeds into the ground and get growing.

Mother Nature is making us wait...

Some people have asked about the hens. What do they do in this kind of weather?

Well here are a few photos.




The red hen is just scratching around close to our hoop house. Here is some information about hoop houses link. The white hen has found some Brussel Sprouts. Who knew? Hens like Brussel Sprouts. The girls will stroll around the yard and the remains of the garden.  One hen went into the hoop house and stayed most of the day. I was wondering why, well a thermometer in the hoop house showed 10 degrees F warmer! Now we all know hens like cozy.

We made green chile sauce and RJR salsa

We made several batches of salsa and then we had so many green tomatoes we made a few batches of green tomato chile sauce. We ate the extra salsa still hot yummy.




Chive blossom vinegar

To make chive blossom vinegar we trim off the flowers from chives and soak them in vinegar for a couple weeks. The chive flowers infuse the vinegar with a garlicky flavour and a beautiful pink hue. This can be used as a flavoured vinegar for salad dressings, dips, to sprinkle on fish or fries, or for a bowl of cucumber slices.


A ready batch.


Clean jars.


The light shining through the pink vinegar. So pretty.

Here's a recipe for a vinaigrette made with chive blossom vinegar.

Strawberries

We're expecting to have extra berries after our CSA sharers have gotten theirs. If you would like a crate or two for making jam, or maybe just a couple boxes for snacking, please give us a call. They are $4.50/box, $54/crate.
