whoops sorry for the blurry picture, musta been in a hurry

Summer still lingers on here at the urban homestead with peppers, beans and tomatoes still growing on.

The wondrous salad greens are back on the menu and we can’t eat enough of the delectable greens.  Give me a bowl of salad and some homemade bread and I would be satisfied.  Hmmm, doesn’t take much to please me.  Ah, the simple things in life.  No  store bought flowers, diamonds, new shoes – just a bowl of homegrown salad greens please.

One of our clients who, like us, was without salad for a weeks and weeks while we battled harlequin bugs and the roller coaster weather called me this morning and said that she and her husband “almost cried” with joy when the sat down and ate our mixed salad greens over the weekend.  I don’t know what it is about our greens but they are something.  Can really put a finger on it.  Could it be the EM, rock dust, or just 20 years of growing soil that reflects in the taste of our greens?

I didn’t do much in the way of meal photos this week, sorry!   But you still can get an idea that our garden’s still supplying us with homegrown bounty.
