Red Norlands & other veg: Aug 2016




Volunteer tomatoes


English cucumbers… they produced a lot.. will plant only 2 hills next year,, not 4.


Winter squash

I planted garlic about 2 weeks ago..  three kinds.. 1 from a neighbor, and Nootka Rose & Roja.. Last night I saw at least 25 shoots coming up.. I need to get some straw to mulch this bed.
And we’ve found the grey Italian zucchini cultivars have a better texture than the all green varieties..



Afroculinaria: Virginia food.

Last week’s Chanterelles

Found a guy selling chanterelles off of Edgewater in Salem, on Nov 11. I bought a half pound for 3 bucks. Quite good, but rather mild. An Asian guy bought 15 pounds. For a restaurant?



Our garden in Salem, Oregon..(#1)

Brenda has done a wonderful job on this…  we’ve had chard enchiladas a couple of times (enchiladas de acelgas) and the beets are great.. We’ve made pesto and need to make more.. putting in some thai basil tonight.




Czech tomato:
Tomato Stupice (in czech – Stupicke polni rane) (in english – Stupice field early) arisened from crossing (Rheinland glory x Mikado x Solanum racemigerum) in cultivator station in community Stupice (near Prague) in 1955. Good for cooler climates.

Rheinlander, in Independence, MO

I had the bratwurst plate last night.. great German-style brats and the best home made sauerkraut that I have had in years. It had little juniper berries in it.


Daß schmeckt gut.

I had a wonderful Spaten Oktoberfest with this.

Okra-Corn Maque-Choux

Lots of fresh corn, okra, tomatoes, & peppers are available now in KCMO.

two crushed cloves of garlic
1 tbs olive oil
Cut corn from 3 ears of fresh sweet corn
1 cup of chopped okra
1 cup of chopped tomatoes
1 cup of chopped peppers ( I used red & “yaller” peppers and about a tbs of minced jalapeño, or more, si tu quieres)
1 tbs Mexican oregano
1 bay leaf


Chopping okra
