Julia and I lowered our carbon footprint by buying premium (priced and quality) local milk from Longmont Dairy Farm. Every Monday (that's today!) at 6:30am, the company will deliver the milk to our front doorstep, left in a cooler. If we wanted to, we could order cream, eggs, and cheese from this dairy as well.
Oh, how tasty it is!
Because of work schedules, we had valentines dinner on Saturday. Yesterday, however, I cut back six (count 'em six!: green leaf, wild card, forellenschluss, 'rugy, hyper red rumble, merlot) kinds of lettuce. Just enough to make a small salad. I know it is nothing much; it is a sign of things to come.
For Valentine's Dinner:
-Our Daily Red organic California table wine -Pomegranate Spritzers -Beet Soup -Grilled asparagus with a pomegranate cream sauce -Ribs with NC style sauce (a la Pitmaster) -Baked brie with a homemade red onion marmalade -Cake - strawberry shortcake layers with fudge frosting and pomegranate soaked cake -Homemade ice cream - vanilla bean custard with three different kinds of cookie dough marbled into tiny hearts
This is a blog that I started as a resource for my gardening adventures. I hope to add to this blog each year as I continue to garden and, hopefully, get better at it by utilizing the information here as well as learning from my past experiences. You will also find some writings in the earliest posts in regards to some of my beliefs in regards to how we, as people, should garden, farm, and eat. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or would like to chat more about these topics. Thank you for stopping by!
I will try to keep a running total of all costs associated with gardening.
