From Dirt To Dinner - Tomato Love

I know. I was supposed to talk about tomatoes. Like 2 weeks ago. And the thing is, we’ve been eating a ton of tomatoes. Seriously. And there have been several meals that I would have deemed “post-worthy.” But again, the thing is, it’s summer. And August is nuts over here.
We’ve got two birthdays in our [...]

From Dirt To Dinner - Squash and Zucchini

Gosh, we’ve been eating an awful lot of squash and zucchini for the past few weeks, both from our own garden and from the CSA box. I have one summer squash plant in the yard, and so far it has produced over 15 fruits. The thing is taking over the yard. When you read about [...]
