GROWING CLOSER TO HOME

march2ndwkmeals.jpg Basket of homeraised eggs, homegrown vegetables, homemade bread and homegrown meal – stuffed homegrown and homepreserved grape leaves (YUM!)

Another weekly meal wrap up of what we urban homesteaders harvested and enjoyed. Still using homegrown/preserved items from last summer’s harvest. Canning and food preservation truly pays off when you can extend your garden’s harvest.

Before the upcoming onslaught of spring and summer crops I’m taking stock of all the homepreseved goodies. It’s a good time to start whittling away at the dwindling homepreserved supplies to make room for this years harvest.

    Reading your meals each week, I go green with envy. I wish we could eat so much homegrown product, but locally grown organic food will do for now with the little bit we grow, until the yard renovations are complete and the final gardens can go in. *sigh but the wait….*
    Your bread looks so yummy! Is it cooked in the cob oven?
    Alos is there somewhere I could find your granola recipe? I have tried afew but am yet to come across one we all like.
    Thank you for all your hard work, it is so inspiring to read about your family each day and your wonderful work!
