The five little things that made my week this week… 1. The figs are coming in fast and furious. I see fig and burrata salad, prosciutto-wrapped figs, roasted fig pizza, balsamic fig jam, spiced fig jam, and just plain juicy fresh figs in my immediate future.

There’s a strange feeling after you step foot in a garden again after seven weeks away. All the seeds have seemingly sprouted overnight. Plants that were only seedlings are suddenly bearing fruit. The volunteer squash (which came up over winter) is already ripe and curing in the sun. It’s like seeing a long-lost friend after […]

I almost can’t believe that we’re over 5 weeks and nearly 10,000 miles in to The CSA Cookbook Road Trip (by the time you read this, we will have hit that 10,000-mile mark on the Lost Coast of California). When Will and I first set out on this adventure in May, we weren’t sure how […]

The five little things that made my week… 1. Of all the turnips I’ve grown over the years, these Red Round turnips are the best. So sweet and tender right out of the soil! I just harvested the last of the winter turnips and have so far made turnip soup, turnip gratin, braised turnip, roasted […]

I just received a shipment of leafcutter bees in the mail the other day. Aren’t they neat? Or I should say, leafcutter bee cocoons. The silken cocoons come encased in the leafy cells the mother bee created when she laid her eggs. Unlike spring mason bees, which start flying when temperatures reach 55°F, summer leafcutter […]
