Capturing my love of whole foods, combined with the activity of a bustling kitchen.
A weekly collection of photos from the center of my home.

top to bottom: the rhubarb is in (I know what I'm making today), spring radishes, dandelion season (one day of dry to harvest a few before rains set in all week), pea pesto, blueberries and seed crackers going into the dehydrator, spices and seeds for dukka making.
We have had a week of cold, dark, gray, windy, and rainy. We have been inside more than we would usually be for May, but we have been finding plenty to keep us busy, and I am thankful for some days where the boys don't mind being busy inside while I work on some articles that are on deadline! It is easier to have holiday decorations out for props when it is cold and gloomy anyway. It has been c-c-c-old. We might even have some frost coming tonight, so maybe we will leave up these twinkly lights when I'm done for some mood enhancing! The good thing about all of this rain is that my surviving rhubarb (I lost some after that brutal winter) had a massive growth spurt and I was able to pick some this morning. Yay! I have a gluten free rhubarb upside down cake in mind. I get to take pictures of hydroponics systems tonight at the local garden center, so it might be nice to take along some goodies for the guys there who are being wonderful about letting me take photos.
Hope you are having a wonderful (warm!?!) week.
