Garlic Scape Purée

We cut the rest if the garlic scapes today. We used all I'd the garlic scapes to make a purée that we can use all winter. One if our girls favourite treats is garlic cheese bread made with garlic scapes. We chopped the scapes and put them in the food processor with a small amount of olive oil. We froze the purée in ice cube trays. We ran out of ice cube trays so we moulded the purée into cookie cutters and then froze .

We have a friend keeping thirty hives on the farm. This is great for our blueberries and squash fields.

If your honey ever crystallizes all you have to so is put it in a pot of water and put or on low heat. The honey will go back to its golden syropy consistency.

Two sunny days in a row!

After having so much wet weather over the last three weeks we have had to really focus on getting the rest of the gardens planted and seeded this week.  Hopefully the colder weather will be done soon so we can get more trays out of the small greenhouse so we can transition it into cucumbers and eggplant.  Our eldest daughter transplanted some cucumber transplants into her garden only to have them die from the cold nights we have been having.  
More rocks!! 

Lily's favourite part of our morning.

Getting ready to attempt to use the earthway seeder to seed more peas.  The earthway worked great for pod peas but not for the snow peas.  The seed plate kept getting jammed and cracked.  We had tried modifying the seeder with a pvc cap but it didn't work for us.
