We have a little raised bed for salads & veg. This is our second crop of carrots this year and I’m delighted with them. I reckon we will get several meals from these - sown as tapes rather than just seeds. We also have chard, which was looking very miserable. It’s suddenly improved and may be edible after all. I suspect the hot weather bothered it. The carrots are almost a foot long. #vegetables #carrots

This evening's meal: curried #jasmine #rice #patties , #vegetables and mashed #potatoes / sweet potatoes.

The patties were leftovers from a rice #curry I cooked for yesterday's evening meal which had jasmine rice, chopped Sanitarium Foods Nutolene, chopped potatoes, chopped carrot, stock powder, Italian mixed herbs. This morning I noticed the curry was gluggy and binding together very well, so I thought I would try making patties from the leftovers. To make them all I had to do was form patties which were then covered lightly with #besan #flour , then #fried in a frypan.

I then took the roasted beets, carrots, onions, and garlic from the sheet pan, layered them in a little Dutch oven with the beet greens and stems, a can of whole peeled tomatoes, and shredded red cabbage, added a good shot of balsamic and some appropriate seasonings, and let it all cook together for a chunky borscht-adjacent stew.

I've battled the mint roots in the vegetable garden for lo these many hours, and I am determined to sow this afternoon!
Seeds going in include:
Paris Market carrots (like a ping-pong ball, but a carrot),
Poona Kheera cucumbers (nice and plump with brownish skin),
Supersnip parsnips (they never grow, but my hopeless love drives me on),
Top Crop beans (bush),
Roma tomatoes (ditto),
and valerianella (aka lamb's lettuce and, weirdly, corn salad).
God willing, the seeds will not only survive the birds but hold their ground against the resurgent mint.

Used diced tomatoes in their juice for the base bouillon, and some leftover olives jar brine. I kinda suck at thinking of tasty sauces/bouillons.

"#Aliens? #Vegetables? Nope, vegetable and #animal bridge #mushrooms. They're the myxomycetes, and they can move and hunt for prey or look for the best environment for them. They are born from spores, like mushrooms.
#Myxomycetes move like huge #amoebas, like pulsating masses; their movements seem to be dependent on microfibrils that remember the fibers of the muscles. These "blobs′′ crawl (at a speed of 1 cm per hour) #phagocusing #bacteria, #algae, #yeasts, #protozoa and other #organic material as they go; they digest them and expel the remains outside. Not randomly, mixomycetes proliferate where there are plenty of prey - on decomposing logs or on carpets of dead, wet leaves.

Sure you can get info on cost of living pages* but it's when you buy it from the market it's clear (stark even).
These cost 90¥ each (about 62¢ US today, per google)
The tomato is from Gifu, can't remember if it said and where the cabbage is from.

Looks like we'll be eating a lot more cabbage! (Good thing, kids, all of us are fond of it)

*Gasp* Witness a rare hoard of mammoth rogue zucchinis emerging from their hatching patch in search of their Mediterranean homelands so far, far away.

Go valiantly on your mission you noble beasts! Fear not the ratatouille, Nor the roasting pan, for you are destined for greatness!

(After a day of doing admin stuff, I thought I'd do a bit of gardening... creative gardening... )

#gardening #cooking #vegetables #googlyeyes

Four massive rogue zucchinis who've obviously been lounging on the vine until they reach their true massive potential next to an upright cut-in-half zucchini who does not seem too disadvantaged by his lack of tail. The latter is standing upright, his stumpy bit against the grass in front of a zucchini patch. They all have pairs of googly eyes above their stems and their expressions are both curious and wary. The feeling is intrepid explorers   ready to adventure or rampage... the future will tell!

I was craving some #spaghettiSquash today, but none of mine were ripe... so I decided to do a little experiment.

Picked an unripe one (hadn't turned yellow yet but the rind was quite firm), scooped out the seeds and fried a bit of it up.

The flesh was green and extremely firm, but it tastes AMAZING. Once cooked, it does have the fibrous quality of ripe spaghetti squash, and it got tender quick.

Would recommend.

I despise how click-bait this headline is.

The situation is nuanced (as usual), but (imo) clear: The unspoken part here is that the arable land consumed by #livestock (roaming, feed) is unavailable for 'healthier' foods. If we consumed less #meat, more land would be available for #vegetables. And the land requirements to feed humans via meat vs veggies is considerably different.

The costs of #healthy foods would decrease if we had more land to grow these foods.

Also can somebody tell me what's going on with these? 🤔 they had these weird, firm spots of discoloration even before they were ripe... is it rot? Can I still eat them if I cut off the affected parts? Should I take unripe #tomatoes off the plant if this happens?
