MISSION CRITICAL: Temple Garden Chowder

June 29, 2010

One of the downsides to taking a three-day vacation when you’ve got a CSA … OMG, what do you do with all the food when you get back? I’m glad it’s been June-Gloomy today, because this would NOT have been made in hot weather. But it successfully used up a whole pile of veggies I […]

I am SO backlogged on posting. To be honest, the summer is the busiest time of the year for me — and not just because of the yard! Here are pictures of how my garden’s grown from the last time I posted to … er … about a week ago when I took these photos, […]
