The Light in September,

...a new batch of Zucchini Relish (click here),

...our lambs in September (I'm thinking about lamb sausage a lot lately),

...individual bread puddings (click here),

...a jar of chili oil my mom gave me yesterday,

...a September lunch salad of garden green beans, freshly dug potatoes, home canned tuna (thanks mom!), and cherry tomatoes,

...and a plate of deviled quail eggs (click here). Except for the barn swallows leaving, I love everything about this time of year. The light has been absolutely magical this week. Even though this has been a rather dismal year for gardening, I love putting together the hodgepodgey (it's my blog and I can make up words if I want to!) sort of meals that are dictated by what's coming from the garden (and the river) right now. Last night was a weird but tasty stir-fry of fried potatoes seasoned with chili oil, broccoli, zucchini, patty pan and yellow summer squash over rice. Tonight, smoked salmon and cream cheese on crackers, and leftover green beans with bacon and garlic (served the night before last with salmon grilled over the fire, bread, pasta and freshly made pesto). And we'll have individual bread puddings for breakfast in the morning. If I were a cat I'd be purring.


  1. Sounds lovely! We had chickpeas stewed with zucchini, tomatoes, galic and herbs from the garden. And for dessert, homemade goat yogurt with blackberries.

  2. Life on the farm looks as delicious as ever. Your pickle looks fantastic. I have had to come to the conclusion I need to lose a serious amount of weight, so I have started a 'Healthy Eating' plan! It has fried my head!!!

  3. I do love your blog T! It's so fun to see what you are growing, making, and creating. Thanks for sharing.

    I love eating seasonally and although I don't grow much I've been shopping at the local farmer's market and that has been fun and tasty. In the winter a challenge. But you know all about that. :O)
