Locally grown

While we won't make the cover of Subsistence Farming magazine anytime soon, it was nice to have a big family meal with a few local delicacies.

The morel mushrooms which I fried and served on toast were harvested from our place in April and then frozen. Betty added our raspberries to her peach/raspberry deep-dish pie.

I'm glad I waited to plant a vegetable garden. The silt and runoff would have destroyed anything planted in the garden spot. I hope to get an earth-mover in here soon to solve our drainage and runoff problems. It has been too wet to do anything like that for the last couple months, but the summer dryness is starting to take hold.
