The Killer Awoke Before Dawn

What are you looking at?

After a cold spring and a wet summer, we worried this might be the Year Without Tomatoes. Fortunately, the farmers are finally bringing them in. These roasted heirloom tomatoes will taste like sunny summer in darkest winter.

Seriously, grow some food yourself, buddy.

Sunday’s backyard harvest: potatoes, a cucumber, a hot pepper, green beans. I’d planted early, the squirrels ate everything, then I planted again, so in August, I’m gathering in July goodies.


A Rocket To the Ocean

Go, Speed Racer!

My organic farming class visited an organic farm, walked through organic fields, admired organic crops, sampled organic strawberries and coveted this interesting tractor. I’ve never coveted a tractor before and never figured out where I’d keep it if I stole it and drove 30 miles to my tiny town at 10 mph. This experience has been full of tingly firsts.
