Backyard Foraging

Found a bit of wild garlic or onions in the back lawn.  They will taste fabulous, snipped like chives, over the top of the peasant chickpeas for dinner.

Gardening Experiment 23 | Will This Grow?

I had some ‘cress on a steak earlier this week.  It was hydroponically grown with the very clean roots still attached.  I wondered…

Will this grow in my pond?  I’ll let you know.

Spring is Coming | Rhubarb is Up


I know there will be at least one crumble and a cocktail or two in my future.

Hungry Caterpillar

In putting all the garden to bed for the fall, we pulled up the last of the tomato and pepper plants.  We found this “little” guy on one of the pepper plants.  He had pretty much cleaned off most all the leaves.  Cherub was fascinated and who could blame her.  It reminded us of the caterpillar in Alice in Wonderland.  This is either a tobacco hornworm or a tomato hornworm.  I’m leaning toward a tobacco hornworm.  But whatever it is, it doesn’t sting or bite.  We tossed it in the compost with the rest of pulled up pepper plants after our photo shoot.
