Yay! It is finally getting to be the time of year when the majority of our daily food is what we pick that day. While most of our food here is what we have grown and some of it is always fresh, the summer months are my favorite when food goes from ground to tummy in a few short hours. I love not having to preserve my food in any way shape or form and is one of my reasons for wanting to become successful at growing a well rounded garden through all four seasons.
Each year I talk about wanting to write down and photograph each days harvest and meals and try to eat nothing but what has come from the farm or foraged but I never do. I won't again this year as it would be too time consuming and I would forget more days than I would remember but I am going to try and show a bit more of our daily harvest through the summer months.
Here is today's harvest from the homestead. When I say one meal it is one meal for two adults. Salad greens for two meals, one main course and one side dish. One meal of peas as main veggie.One main course meal of turnips. If I had saved the greens for our consumption it would have been two but the critters needed a treat and quite frankly I am tiring of green vegetation. 6 eggs which is a meal for us with an extra one for me another day because I am on a crazy egg kick lately and one for big white dog because he is spoilt rotten. A couple cups of goat milk for cooking ,making cheese and yogurt. I also made the rose jam this morning but since I have to buy sugar that is only half a harvest.
