Produce Department

Finally, we are at the point where we can go grocery shopping in the garden for dinner every day. We are getting lots of food, and soon we'll need to start canning and freezing to keep up with it all.

I've been trying to stay on the ball with our harvest tally this year. I even got a ledger book to record the weight of everything, which is the kind of OCD activity I normally would really be into. However, one thing I forgot to take into account is that it's kind of annoying to meticulously record weights and quantities into a ledger when you're starving and ready to bite into a raw zucchini. So instead, the weight of everything we've picked so far this year is written on the back of an envelope on the kitchen table.

For the record, that cabbage weighed 2 pounds.

I started tallying what we were harvesting on a food splattered notebook that lives in the kitchen, not too far from the back of an envelope. And ultimately decided to join the Independence Days Challenge to keep me on point in recording everything.

I am very jealous of your garlic...
