Dandelion greens?

Not exactly. But we decided to open a bottle of Eiswein rather than have the Port.

Them danged Russians are beating us in another technology race - what is it with those people, anyway??

high tech food production
Quote:
In 2003 the Russian President signed into law a further “Private Garden Plot Act” enabling Russian citizens to receive free of charge from the state, plots of land in private inheritable ownership. Sizes of the plots differ by region but are between one and three hectares each [1 hectare = 2.2 acres]. Produce grown on these plots is not subject to taxation. A further subsequent law to facilitate the acquisition of land for gardening was passed in June 2006. (according to a footnote in “Who We Are” by Vladimir Megre, pg. 42)

I'd like to see more in the way of community gardens here but I'm not holding out much hope for it in the near future. Americans are so enthralled with the idea of growing and caring for grass and lawns that the concept of growing anything edible seems to have gone the way of the horse and buggy.
Is your garden troll getting the fall crops in Logtroll?
It's time to plant the cabbage and broccoli and Brussels sprouts and rutabagas.
It's still a little early for me here but I've tilled the garden and am starting seeds for some late warm weather crops.
In a few weeks I'll get the Cole crops in.

Welp, last night the po' folks at my house ate a disastrous Thai pasta chicken salad. I need a really good spicy peanut dressing - like fail proof, thanks.

Trader Joes make a Thai pasta chicken salad. I can make the salad part really well - I just can't make the dressing. Hmm

UPDATE: I just had leftovers and it was much better - good actually. Last night the sauce was so spicy, my esophagus closed up and my eyes and nose watered.

The garden troll has been bringing stuff by for a month or so, and selling some to the Food Co-op and some other customers she runs across. My wife got a good patch going here at home, too, so the salads have been good for about a month, as well. The taters are good enough to dig some and beets are now a regular. A friend of ours has liver cancer and the chemo/radiation stuff has failed to put it into remission, so he is on a serious organic juicing diet, which is where we are putting much of our produce now. It's also an incentive to improve and expand our productivity and to try and get the greenhouse producing into the winter.

I cut down some Siberian Elms in the back yard yesterday (they are a water sucking invasive, very prolific and hard to eradicate, but the wood makes nice lumber) in preparation for getting more yard into garden and orchard. Mrs. Logtroll is planting three cherry trees as we post and I am designing the water harvesting system from the roof and greywater that I hope to have in place next season.

Tonight, we have a beef tip roast on the Cobb (with some pinyon smoke) and will have another great greens-cukes-beets-tamaters salad and some garlic-fried boiled new taters. Mmmmm! And a gin & tonic is helping me write.

Up on the list is to make my own tonic, the store stuff is too sweet and Fevertree (my favorite) and Q-Tonic are expensive and hard to come by.

Meat loaf, roasted beets and Brussels sprouts for supper tonight at the neighbors with some nice Scottish Shortbread I made last night for dessert, along with copious amounts of George Dickel #12.
It's still too hot for lettuce here but I'm dying for a fresh picked salad. I've got cucumber, Tomato, and eggplant seeds started in trays and I'm itching to get the garden going again.

Cover your ears eyes, Greger.

The guys are having bratburgers. Your butcher may not have heard of this particular (ahem) delicacy. It is bratwurst stuff, raw and not in a casing, with lots of jalapenas, formed into a patty.

Here in the 'burg, it's considered real man food. When tailgating, a guy doesn't have to choose between a burger and a brat, he can have this hybridized thing. I tried it once, and wasn't crazy about the ... um ... juiciness, and it's probably heart-attack bait so I always have something else.

May I enquire about the provenance of your dialect, crick? Or did you just return from having a root canal done?
