Weekly Homestead Report

August 28, 2017

Picked this week: tomatoes (oh goodness so many tomatoes), zucchini, Italian roasting peppers, a few strawberries and raspberries, apples at Volcan Valley Apple Farm (full post coming later when I have time to sit down)

Preserved: bruschetta in a jar (Ball canning), kimchee kraut (The Joy of Pickling), apple liqueur

Traded: tomatoes for homemade bread, tomatoes for mason jars and lemon verbena, yet more tomatoes for butternut squash, pesto for figs

Repaired: drip line for sprinklers (the ends keep coming undone, I need to get more of the end turnback thingies)

Pulled: a dying zucchini plant, the Sweet 100s tomato plant (neither sweet nor 100s, unfortunately, guess it didn’t like it here)

Cooked: crockpot chicken and chorizo with red peppers (The Mediterranean Slow Cooker), ham and green onion quiche (BH&G), roasted eggplant Parmesan (my own recipe, but forgot to take a picture of the end result, d’oh!), lots of pesto (also my own recipe).

  1. Ooh, pesto recipe! Can you post that here at some point or point me to where you’ve posted it already?

  2. I’m not sure I’ve posted it. I will definitely post it for you the next time I make it!
