Found a bunch of mushrooms in the yard today. Wine caps on the left (verified with a spore print), chicken of the woods, and a puffball. Going to make some sort of lasagna with the puff ball tonight. Will post pics later.

Been a little behind on posting here. A couple weeks ago I took a class on flax processing at the Low Tech Institute. A ton of work to process this stuff by hand. Really helps you appreciate how "cheap" linen really is

Whipped up some dill pickles tonight. Anyone got a favorite pickle recipe?

Mildly interesting: this tomato plant grew some leaves upside down?

Fun little experiment tonight. King Oyster mushrooms, shredded and seasoned. Baked for 20 minutes and ended up with a nice BBQ pulled pork substitute.

Probably my last time trying to cook this Malai Kofta recipe from my Curry 101 book. Most of the recipes in this book are excellent but this one never seems to work out. Whenever I go to fry the koftas they get a nice golden brown crust then immediately turn to goo

These little strawberry seedlings are already putting out runners

We haven't been getting much rain in the past year and our soil is poor (mostly sand). Have to get creative on 2 fronts. Watering less and upping our water storage. Today we worked on the part where we water less. Did my first ever hay cutting to mulch our plants in hopes of getting the soil to hold some more water in combination with some compost we got from a friend. Hoping to repeat this for a few years and get some decent soil built up.

Lost a decent amount of pepper plants to frost last night. Getting harder to plant every year with these crazy weather changes.

About a year ago a deer at the central leader off this poor Macoun apple tree. Never could figure out how I would fix it. Well yesterday it surprised me with a new leader.

I wish there was some way to generate a garden plan based on the food you ate last year. Plant N amount of garlic, M amount of tomatoes, etc

Crazy growth out of our little pawpaw tree. Was pretty sure this was dead when we brought it here
