    too many courgettes? a homemade recipe: polpette di zucchine (zucchini balls)

    Photo-upload-413178?1408931208 I've started to harvest zucchini... When I have plenty of them, I make and freeze 'polpette'. This is the recipe I usually follow. Ingredients (I go by eye) * 1 kg zucchini * 1 potato * 1 small onion * 1 egg (or one and a half, if small) * 1, or more, clove of garlic * grated parmes...

    Tepary bean landrace and an olive tree

    Photo-upload-413160?1408919413 Today a Hooded Oriole stopped by, but the syrup feeder was empty. I have been letting my hummingbirds down since the tornado by forgetting to keep it filled. Now I've filled it, hoping they will find the cafe open again! A pretty sunflower planted by the birds has bloomed in the middle of the ...

    Raise the lowered!

    Photo-upload-413219?1408988189 Those who know me and my late brother Yendor know that this kind of thing is a lot of fun for us- especially if all the obsessing over details produces a process that runs smoothly. I kept thinking of him as I accomplished this project, and it was as if he was with me. Having figured out the pr...

    A fine late Summer day

    Photo-upload-413072?1408850584 First the Farmers' Market and other errands, including sorting out the last days of our trip to the UK which will include a trip to Kew Gardens, whoohoo! Then some time in the garden, mostly sorting and washing plant pots to go into the recycling bag, and pots to go back indoors. Some things such...

    Photo-upload-412902?1408729381 I moved some daylilies today. Cool Jazz is where French Pavilion was; FP moved left toward the phlox; Little Maggie came from driveway to circle right almost in front of Cool Jazz. Armageddon moved right to the other side of Elegant Candy on bark path: that line now runs Pewter Lake, Aesth...

    Hot rocks

    Photo-upload-413174?1408924905 Another lovely day, sun over the valley, large and threatening cumulus ranging along the peaks. If it doesn't rain tonight, I will need to water tomorrow especially the new transplants. Some deadheading, and some rearranging of rocks along the southwest side of Centre to make the wall a little...

    Photo-upload-413325?1409090917 Four years ago I put concord grapes on my porch to replace the gorgeous but newly invasive sweet autumn clematis. This year it paid off. The lower porch rails are filled with the vines, and I've got my harvest coming up. Last year I got only two bunches, which never quite ripened. The birds ar...

    Xan and the beanstalk

    Photo-upload-413326?1409091485 The fall shelling beans are mostly in, and sprouted. Once the zucchini comes out next week I think I'll have room for about 25 more, which should get me through the year. I planted four types: Black turtle, hidatsa red, pinto, and hutterite. Didn't differentiate the plantings because I'll be a...
