Parisian Daily Bread

I’ve been wanting to try this bread recipe for quite awhile to test it out and see if it’s a quicker and better recipe than other baguette recipes I’ve tried. Well, Farmgirl Susan was spot on. This is a great recipe w/ great results! It took me about 4 hours from start to finish and produced 3 beautiful, crispy and delicious loaves!!

Garden Update

My garden is doing beautifully this year! The weather conditions for growing have been optimal so everything has been thriving (especially compared w/ last year). The tomatoes are starting to appear, as well as the bell peppers, jalapenos, broccoli, chard and onions. The asparagus has ferned out and is now almost as tall as me! I’m looking forward to an abundant crop of asparagus next year. I planted the butternut squash outside of the fence so it won’t shade out the other veggies w/ it’s large leaves.  This past week I cut and sauteed my first batch of Swiss chard w/ a few of the small onions and my first ripe jalapeno. That was such a delicious treat! I find it so rewarding to pick fresh veggies from my garden and cook them up in my kitchen that same day!!

A couple of weeks ago I moved things around in the herb garden because my basil and rosemary were being shaded by taller plants. Everything seems to like their new location in the garden now.
