    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    Grapes

    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...

    Mostly sunny, the drain-away, and more hot rocks

    Photo-upload-413336?1409117803 Yesterday after a day hunched over the computer doing finances for the potters' guild etc., I went out and yanked some more of the soaker hose. One way of getting some exercise and a good sweat going. Running back and fore with kettles of boiling water was good exercise too - I had to move a big ...
