Let The Good Times Roll

September 21, 2011

FALLS VILLAGE, Connecticut: An old friend and a new friend came to visit me in the country and brought a bounty of delicious vegetables and fruits from a lil farm an hour north of me in Worthington, Mass. We cooked up a storm!

Breakfast first with coffee, potatoes, tomatoes, tomatillos, greens (including kale cutting silliness,) toast and fresh eggs from Wheatogue Farm with chunks of goat cheese.

Next came dinner, lemongrass marinated wild salmon, a side of brown rice, candied carrot, beet and radish, and garlicy greens with onion, broccoli and pepper. YUM!

What feasts! Cooking is fun.

GREENPOINT, Brooklyn:  Design.Plot is taking shape! This post is a big thank you to Sprout Home, Sweethaven Farm and an  individual named Daniel for donating materials and plants to the cause last weekend. It’s great to be able to give all these contributions a “second life” and see some progress taking place on the lot. If you have any unwanted plants or building materials to get rid of please let us know! We’d be overjoyed to take any discards off your hands! You can email me at to coordinate!
