Catch Up Time Again

It has been a busy time  for us here on the farm.

Most of it is just normal, daily routine things.

New eggplants from the garden encouraged me to try a new dish.  Very simple:  diced onions, eggplant sauteed very soft then add (fresh, if possible) tomatoes at the last and cook down until very thick.  I added a mix of pastas to the pan.  Serve with grated Parmesan cheese....I loved  it.  I also just sauteed some in avocado oil and liked that very much too.  I don't have to salt these types of eggplant because they have no bitterness.
The yellow tomato I think is Kellogg's Breakfast or they sent the wrong seeds.  It is very sweet and tasty.
The green is chopped fresh  basil from the  garden.


The beans are still producing and we picked and processed another half  bushel.  I am done!

We bought a bushel of apples for sauce.  Max refuses to eat that from the store!  We picked half each of  Golden  Delicious and Grimes Golden.  I have just worked up half and will chop and freeze the rest for a later date.


Today is Max's oral surgery.  We are a little nervous but  it is unavoidable.  Keep good thoughts for us.

  1. Oh, prayers for Max.

    Where did you get your apples this year? I so wish I had access to an orchard.

    1. The orchard on highway 13 near us. They are fairly new and the trees are in dreadful shape. They have gone to a pick yourself operation and didn't thin the trees enough so the fruit was very small. Could have bought them at Murfins for the same price. Doubt we will return. I think they are concentrating too much on the bakery side and the small store....prices are exorbitant for most items.

  3. Hoping Max's oral surgery went without a hitch and he's well on the road to feeling as good as can be again.

    We don't eat any applesauce except for homemade either. I still have some from last year, but not sure what we'll do this year as we have very few apples on our older trees. The new dwarf are loaded again, though, but they are the best tasting ones so we keep them for eating out of hand. The other, when we have them, are for cooking, baking and making sauce.

    Your eggplant dish sounds wonderful! On my four eggplants in the garden, there are only buds and a few fruits just barely starting to develop. Nope, not gonna have any eggplant here this year. I need a hoop house!!!!

    1. I built a hoophouse several years back and loved it. I didn't heat it during winter but used it for seedlings and extending the seasons. Wish I still had it. A tornado that swept through damaged it too much to repair.

  4. Your top 2 pics are so pretty. Would be good for a vegetable catalog or website. Hope Max is doing ok.
