I finally feel like a gardener. I’ve always secretly felt that you couldn’t really call yourself a gardener until you had an overflowing basket of stuff you grew. It is still a little early for a garden round up, but I’ve got to say I’m pretty proud so far, granted the bar was set pretty […]

The Hardest Partjordan

Fri, 28 Aug 2009 16:31:38 +0000

The hardest part about blogging about you dinner is remembering to take pictures of your dinner. Imagine a rosy hued broth, white chunks of turnip and cod, golden roasted croutons, and a brilliant green drizzle of flavored oil. That’s what we had for dinner last night.  This time of year cooking is really fun because […]

Tomato reviewjordan

Fri, 28 Aug 2009 15:18:37 +0000

Well it’s nearing the end of August and I think it is time to review what has gone on with my tomatoes this year. This was a very cool summer. Up until mid August most of the weather was in the 70’s. The 90*+ weather has finally brought the tomatoes into a ripening mood. My […]

Preserving the harvestjordan

Fri, 21 Aug 2009 16:28:30 +0000

The time has come when I need to start looking forward into the cold months of winter. I’m trying to figure out as many ways to preserve what I can from the garden so that I’ll have plenty of variety in those long dark months. So far I have canned some maple syrup, preserved both […]

Okay, well there is a lot to do. Right now I’ve go more zucchini than I know what to do with. So far everyone I’ve told feels the need to tell me the story about neighbors locking their doors for fear of getting zucchini dropped off. Really though. I’ve only got two plants. How much […]

Hopping proudjordanMt. Hood hop cones

Tue, 21 Jul 2009 18:55:18 +0000

Well believe it or not all of my hops have come up. Even the ones which I didn’t think were going to come up. Hiding in the back underneath squash leaves little hop vines are climbing along the ground. I hope they store up enough energy for next year. The rest of my hops are […]

Slow Beans ComingjordanTrail of Tears Pole Bean

Fri, 03 Jul 2009 17:36:46 +0000

Well my first major hurdle of the season has arrived. I’ve planted a large amount of heirloom beans. I plan on them being part of my staple diet through out the winter. I haven’t put too much thought into them. Beans are supposed to be easy to grow right. I mean didn’t everyone grow some […]

Did you know I have magic powers?jordan

Tue, 30 Jun 2009 18:28:43 +0000

Yep it’s true. I can control things like the weather. Take today for example. Most of the early morning hours have been witness to what I would describe as a biblical deluge. You know, when it rains so hard that you feel the need to stop what you are doing, look out the window, and […]

Many of the perennial plants we planted last year have fully returned to life and are doing great. We even have one monster sage plant that was supposed to die off this year. Looks like we will have apples this year. I was worried the tree blossomed too early and the cold got to the […]
