A little harvest
Saturday night's dinner was a local affair. It consisted of a nice steak from nearby Geeveston, baked potato chips from Dutch Cream potatoes from Franklin and a salad of stuff picked from my own garden - lettuce, radish, some asparagus spears, shallots. That was followed by a rhubarb and pear crumble (rhubarb my own, pears from Woodside Orchard in Franklin). The hens provided some eggs for breakfast the next morning. I still don't have much at all growing in my garden, so I was quite proud to make a tasty meal out of the random stuff I harvested - while it was pelting down snow, mind you. Things are slowly starting to happen out there.
