This week's Julia Child recipe is the classic Coq au Vin. I am not sure I am going to be able to squeeze this into a very crowded week. We have had an out of town guest that just left this morning, and I need to get the house turned over for another set of guests that arrive Friday. AND I really want to take part in this contest going on at the Herbivoracious site. If I do not end up making the JC dish, I will still post the recipe so you can have a go at it. BTW, Herbivoracious is the next book in line for review. It is fantastic!
A quick peak at the garden.
Things continue to get a little taller. I have thinned the radishes once and will do it again today or tomorrow. I was able to harvest some lettuces this weekend that were darn tasty on sandwiches. I am certain that growing things yourself makes them taste better.
The corn has begun to sprout.
Also, the peas have begun to flower.
Nothing is happening in my re-re-planted patch of bare ground. It is my guess that something is digging in this spot, as I could see pea seeds on top of the soil a few days ago when I came out to water. I do not think I will try peas again here, but will move on to beans and see what happens.
