Kansas City Eatin'

After Eat Real Fest weekend, I was in dire need of a vacation. A full time job, a start-up company, a huge festival, a working urban farm and harvest season had really started to pile up on me.

Something for everyone

Eat Real Fest was a blast - again! Three days later, everything we own is covered in dust and every inch of my body aches but, alas, we survived the weekend!

Eat Real Fest is this weekend (and we have a surprise for you)!

We sure have been busy here lately on the farm! Not only is it harvest time for a lot of our veggies, it's also time to plant cole crops, beets and carrots.

Reuse revisited - garbage never looked so good

I've been thinking about re-use of materials a lot lately because I'm attempting to make my urban homesteading General Store Booth at Eat Real Fest out of 90% re-purposed materials. It's a challenge, but a fun one!

Some days are better than others

As far as days go, yesterday was not one of my best. I woke up in the morning in a mysterious soggy puddle.

Out of nowhere - HARVEST!

Everyone has been talking about how late their tomatoes are this year, how thick the aphids, how persistent the winter and spring rains.

Putting up, in all its forms

I have fond memories of my great-grandmother pulling dusty jars with rusty-looking lids out of the basement. I don't remember watching her can or having a large enough garden to mass produce those dusty jars, so for all I know they were canned in a time before I was alive, but I remember the jars vividly.

How very continental

I pride myself on making delicious healthful food and feeding those in my nearest vicinity. So you can imagine my shock when my honey, who has been working really hard the last few weeks on launching a big project at work, told me that he's been picking up breakfast at Starbucks every morning.

This week at the market - peaches & nectarines!

I'm the foodie in the family, by which I mean I'm the one who thinks about what I'll eat for breakfast before I even open my eyes in the morning. While I'm eating breakfast, my mind is going to lunch and what wonders I might encounter there.
