Squash Stash

Still whittling away at humongous tromboncino squash stash from last year. “Farmer D” (a fitting nickname given by school kids) shows off one of the “biggies” harvested from the garden last year. This impressive specimen of a squash has traveled with us urban homesteaders to boothing displays and talks at UCLA, Universal City’s Eco Fair and more. This week, after all its travels, it ended on our dinner plates.

Bon appetite.

Urban Homestead’s Weekly Menu

In the chaos of the ensuing journal move, postings became erratic and the weekly menu was put on hold. Well, I am happy to say the popular weekly menu wrap up is back.

We are blessed to be enjoying/eating homegrown tomatoes in the middle of February. We are soooo spoiled here in California. Can’t imagine what it is like see nothing but snow and ice – you brave and hearty souls.

We urban homesteaders have also been enjoying the tasty yacon tubers chopped up raw in salads. They are incredibly delicious!

So with out any further adieu… what we ate this week. Enjoy!

    Here you are! I was thinking “they haven’t posted to their in some time at Path To Freedom”, and I hadn’t had any updates on my Google Reader, but upon further research, (as in my own blog tracker), came up with this new address for the journal. Have you made an offical announcement of this at the old site? If so, I missed it! Glad to see so much activity going on!

    Clare,

    Yep, we are still here. Glad to know there’s been problems with the RSS feed. Jordanne’s working on it. There are a lot of bugs and problems we encountered with this move and are still plugging away at getting everything in working order.

    Hello Val,

    Glad you enjoyed the squash pictures. They are fun to grow and eat.

    Jennifer,

    Sure, it’s good to be back to our regular scheduled posting. As for chocolate… we are of Belgian/French descent so chocolate is one of the “essentials of life.” 😀
