New Box and Garden

Things have been really busy here lately! We finally are almost done with our new garden. My husband just needs to build me a support for my climbing plants and hook up the watering system. I’ll try to get some pictures posted later in the week.

Harvest Box 6/4/13

We got a new box of produce, too. They were out of the lettuce mix I usually order, so the box was smaller than usual. Here’s what is in the box:

  • Honeydew melon
  • Red potatoes
  • Broccoli
  • Carrots
  • Orange bell pepper
  • Carrots
  • Cucumbers
  • Zucchini
  • Japanese sweet turnips
  • Peaches
  • Rainbow chard

New Box for a Busy Week

I’m a bit stressed out about this week. My work schedule is going to be suddenly busier. I’m also having company (two different times), and will be heading out of town this weekend. I’m happy about all these things, but once again overscheduled myself. (Probably shouldn’t have signed up for that second sewing class….) Fortunately, we got a really fun box of produce this week, so I have lots of goodies to fix for our company!

Harvest Box 5/17/13

Here’s what is in the box this week:

  • Pineapple
  • Melon
  • Sweet potatoes
  • Potatoes
  • Broccoli
  • Cucumbers
  • Green beans
  • Radishes
  • Strawberries
  • Baby bok choy
  • Salad mix

Waited Too Long

We have had unusually variable weather the last few weeks. At one point, we had a 30 degree drop in high temperature in 2 days! Between the wicked winds, warmer temperatures, and complete absence of moisture, the fire danger is incredibly high. The State of New Mexico has already scheduled an outdoor fire ban starting this week. No camping for a while! Wish we hadn’t put off that first trip.

Harvest Box 5/3/12

  • Potatoes
  • Beets
  • Red bell pepper
  • Zucchini
  • Yellow grape tomatoes
  • Sugar snap peas
  • Strawberries
  • Lettuce

Artistic (?) Photos

I’ve been taking an only food photography course. At first, my photos were getting better. Now, I’m not so sure.

Photo Box

I recently was given the opportunity to participate in a “30 days to better food photos” course. Each day, I get an email with a lesson to complete. We then post our photos to a Google+ group and review each other’s work. Hopefully, my photography will get better.
