Distraction can often be a good thing. As I divide up today's CSA shares I am inspired to create my first ever Mandala. In doing so I ponder what impact growing your own food and sharing it with others has on the planet and our relationships. What the world needs now is love sweet love...for everyone. And we all gotta eat. .

Every day I say I'm going to eat something different for breakfast and every day I make the same thing! I can't help myself. There are so many variations on the theme of tomato pesto toasties. What are you doing with your tomato harvests? .

Here we are @pellerwines in the kitchen for an event called Chef's Table. I'm standing with Garde Manger Eric. (Our son Doran holds the same position on the line @barquebbq) Here we are being treated to a backstage pass to the kitchen throughout our four course luncheon. Looking forward to learning! And drinking and eating local wine and food! .

Another 5 shares distributed today through the #BUFCO CSA This is the fourth time this week we've distributed shares. I'm learning that running a CSA, even a mini one like ours, requires cold storage and containers and counter space. Who knew?. @torontogardener this share is yours. 😊sorry you're missing this @citymouse_gardenandtable but there will be plenty upon your return! .

I'm finally sitting down to an exquisite breakfast after my rounds - a sliced Earl of Edgecomb tomato on chèvre slathered @prairieboybread with pesto. Garnished with basil microgreens. Heaven. .

I sure picked a bad week to throw my back out! And yet, I must keep up with the harvesting, in between rests on the couch. My advise to others is to listen to your body and rest BEFORE you injure yourself. And get a good osteopath! .

This week is starting off with a bang! Behold the 6 shares that are going out to staff and neighbours, all of whom keep #BUFCO humming. This is an experiment to see how many mouths two urban gardens can feed. It's also a test for me to see if I'd actually like to be a farmer (on a much smaller scale) like I've always thought I would. It's a nerve wracking challenge but so far so good. .
