    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...

    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...

    Zone 10 Gardeners! What seeds do you sow in September?

    I'd like to plant some edibles seeds during September. The seeds I've purchased are from England, so the back of the packets states sowing times, which only allows for Radishes to be planted at this time. I live in sunny Cyprus, zone 10b, so my question is, can I plant other seeds? My research sa...

    Current Harvest Tally

    65 lbs! As of 8/23, we have harvested 65 lbs. I love comparing the data from previous year. I thought that we were low on raspberries, but have only picked .3lbs less than last year and there is still probably one more harvest to do before they are finished. I don't want to speak to soon,...
