“Some old-fashioned things like fresh air and sunshine are hard to beat. In our mad rush for progress and modern improvements let's be sure we take along with us all the old-fashioned things worth while.” Laura Ingalls Wilder

From Garden to Table
While our garden is still weeks away from producing much of anything, we
had our first harvest of asparagus last night for dinner. This was
planted three years ago and is now producing enough to pick. Another
bed was planted last year and I'm tempted to plant one more strip this
spring. There is NO comparison to freshly picked and store bought.
It's that delicious. Last night I made salmon noodle casserole served
with asparagus, carrots, stewed rhubarb and milk for dinner. You can
buy Alaskan salmon in small tins .. it's drained, flaked and added to
homemade mac and cheese making for an easy to prepare meal.
What's getting picked or preserved from your garden?
