shot from the tool shack at the community garden each week, i'm able to get more and more at the market. but why do i always buy like i'm still a single person with no time to cook? it's better to use it all up in 2 days than to let things go to waste, i suppose. and i have let plenty of produce go to waste in its time. but this is almost half gone: 1 bag mixed salad greens 1 bag spinach 1 bunch asparagus 2 mushroom patties 1 dozen eggs 1 bunch kale 3 tomatoes 1 cheddar-rosemary scone 9 oz. raw gouda hey, the tomatoes were $3.29 a pound, and they were greenhouse tomatoes, and not organic. a girl has to be careful. this was our lunch directly after the market. yum. i put too much nutmeg in the eggs, which is a common problem now that we have whole nutmeg. grating it makes me feel very culinary and proud. that just feels too good to stop after half a teaspoon. sometime this week i'm going to have to buy some bird netting so i can get away with some strawberries. these are perennials, and i had no hand in putting them in, but they're the most healthy and hale plants in the plot. yesterday, i scared about half a dozen birds out of the garden with my arrival, so i imagine netting is necessary. mmm, berries. portland summers are wonderful for many reasons, and berries are a big one. the cold snap we had in the less-temperate parts of the country in march killed lots of berries and stone fruit, so i'll have to eat my fill on vacation. i can't wait.
