WEEKLY MEAL CATCH UP

 Colorful salad: homegrown field greens with peppery edible nasturtiums

 Homemade sprout bread

 Homegrown potatoes, squash, fava beans and assorted field green salad

 Homegrown pototoes, broccoli and assorted field green salad

Here’s where we last left off. From what readers have said, the weekly meal wrap up is one of their favorite features here on the journal. Thanks for the positive feedback. We started publicly posted our daily meals nearly over a year ago and it’s been well received ever since (yes, I know more recipes!).

Here on the urban homestead we grow almost all our fresh produce needs (99% – in wintertime we sometimes stock up on extra organic potatoes or onions to use as meal stretchers) If it isn’t growing outside our back door, then we don’t eat it. Meaning we wait months anticipating the first sun ripen tomato or sweet corn.

We avoid buying prepared, processed foods, and we purchase bulk goods and try cook from scratch as much as possible, using basic ingredients.

So, as promised the last two weeks worth of eats here on the urban homestead.
