Garden bounty for today — kale for smoothies, mint to dry for tea, and flowers to make me happy! ☺️ #gardenbounty #eatingfromthegarden #kaleforsmoothies #dryingmintfortea #happyflowers #drawthatpig #itsthelittlethings

One day’s harvest a few weeks ago - after I had already preserved a few baskets worth and before I harvested the rest of the tree! This seven year old pear tree impresses us more each passing year. I’m convinced buying this fruit tree for planting was the best $30 investment we will ever make. Such little effort, so much delicious fruit!
The challenge has been preserving this haul as they ripen waaaay too fast to take my time. I squared up to it though, with many a large bowl and a sharp knife in hand, and even took on more by picking the rest of the fruit a couple days ago. After days and days of sweet sticky work, I am happy to say that I finally see the end of the pear sea within reach!
Word of caution: if you are in the tree on a tall ladder and ask a child to find you a new container because you filled your bucket, you may be handed a felt Easter bunny bucket complete with tall ears 😊

Using the last of my garden tomatoes to make a simple “tomato, butter, onion sauce.” Im trying to get a head start on meals for the week. #cookingahead #cookingfromscratch #eatingfromthegarden #simpletomatosauce

It's #plumseason these guys are so sweet and tasty but don't eat too much or you'll be sorry! Did you know that plums naturally contain sorbitol, the sugar alcohol? #sorbitol and #fiber both act as digestive softeners and too much can lead to constipation relief or diarrhea. #functionalmedicine #nature #functionalnutrition #cleanfood #gardening #inseasonnow #eatingfromthegarden #eatingraw #vitaminc #plantflavors #antioxidants #flavonoids #solublefiber #vitamink #anthocyanin #guthealing #guthealth #healthygut #skinhealth #skinbynature #healthyskin #stonefruits #prebiotics #guthealthmatters #antiaging

The 7 yo made dinner! When she announced she would make dinner because I’ve been so sick, her first step was to head to the garden to harvest kale and a bowlful of cherry tomatoes (not pictured because they are too delicious). She set to work making a tuna salad that indeed contained more vegetables than tuna! All her idea, including the baggie of nutritional yeast for seasoning the rice noodles 😊
There are so many times in parenting the strong-willed child that I am disappointed that she isn’t interested in doing xyz activity together, or that she’s complaining about some amazing homemade something. But, I am gradually noticing signs as she ages that even if kids are off on their own endeavor, even if it’s been a bumpy ride, they are still soaking in some of the values and lessons they seem not to care about. And that is a massively rewarding gift for the persevering parent! 💕 Here’s to hoping this is the first of many vegetable-laden dinners to come from the hands of my little lady!

Today's harvest. Two orange crackled cucumbers. One pickling cucumber. One pale green seedless cucumber. One small sherbet watermelon. Assortment of heirloom tomatoes. Giant bunch of chard. #eatingfromthegarden #organicgardening #gardening #heirloomtomatoes #bakercreekseeds #bakercreekheirloomseeds

Everyone needs some of these in their garden. Garlic chives. They really do have great flavour. Easy to grow. They are happily growing amongst other plants. Add to salads and omelette. Sprinkle on top of soups or stews.

A grilled cheese made with homemade bread and a homegrown cucumber pickle. The last tastes of summer as we transition into fall. #eatingfromthegarden

Perfect day for making tomato sauce fresh from the garden @tjs_grandcompanionfarm thanks for the the amazing vegetables!! #fresh #nosugar #fruitsoflife #eatingfromthegarden

Fresh off the #vine and into the #freezer! Did you know freezing fruits right after harvest helps retain their nutrients? Full disclosure: I'm going to rinse, separate these off the vine before I freeze them on a flat pan then transfer to an airtight container for a refreshingly #specialtreat later! 💯#greengrapes💚 #greengrapes #freshoffthevine #inseasonnow #eatingfromthegarden #eatingraw #veganeats #gfeats #naturesmedicine #backtonature #fuelhappy #reenergize #fueledbyplants #snacklife #snackhacks #sneekinthosegreens #functionalnutrition #gardening #summerberries #foodhacks #goraw #plantbased #juicygrapes

RAINBOW Swiss Chard from the garden :) #nofilter #eatingfromthegarden

Using up leftover roasted Japanese sweet potatoes and the last of the yogurt cheese in this off the cuff dinner. Frittata and salad. Homegrown cucumbers, heirloom tomatoes, thyme, and chives. Local pea shoots and sweet potatoes. Big girl to little girl, "eat your kuna matata" gesturing towards frittata. It's the last of the summer and school has started and everything is ramping back up. I am less good at the busy busy busy and dreading it a bit already, it can feel tempting to let the rhythms go (making dinner is a hassle) but I need them now more than ever. #eatingfromthegarden #eatlocal #vegetarian #familydinner #familyrhythms
