The sows all get their own hut, one just had a load of very cute piglets. They like to huddle in the hut and run around with their mama and graze.
Potatoes in the ground
Mom’s zucchini bake
My mom and I garden together. I help with planting and harvest which is actually quite fun. Also, we love to go over seeds together in the winter. The potatoes are my favorite because I love, love new potatoes. We had planned to harvest them all this week but we felt they might benefit from a few more weeks in the ground. So, I harvested a few and also dug up some beets, Japaneses bunching onions, garlic and shallots along with zucchini some of which were pretty over grown. My mom makes a very delicate and delicious gluten free zucchini bake with eggs, Parmesan and grated “monster” zucchini. Fantastic, last night she did not add the Parmesan and it was even more delicious! Perfect for a dressed up lunch or a side for dinner.
