Garden 2015

This year’s veggie garden was seeded on March 29th and planted on May 6th. The weather conditions were optimal to get everything in the ground early this year. All plants are thriving w/ the exception of the hollyhocks which have rust disease. I’m trying to nurse them back to health. Fingers crossed they survive. Here’s a list of what went in the garden this year:

3 Waltham butternut squash

2 Aconcagua red bell pepper

1 Jalafuego jalapeno

1 Sierra Fuego jalapeno

4 Early jalapeno

2 Red Winter kale

2 Lacinato kale

2 Ruby Red Swiss chard

2 Mixed chard (Pot of Gold/Ruby Red)

4 Black Krim tomato

2 Brandywine tomato

2 Crimson Carmello tomato

1 Pineapple tomato

1 Gold Medal tomato

1 Speckled Roman tomato

1 Pompeii tomato

Baby Mesclun lettuce

Spicy Micro Greens

Wild and Regular arugula

Rye Pain au Levain Revisited

Same recipe and procedure as in my last post. Only this time I made 2 small loaves, 35 minute total bake time and rotated the loaves front to back after 20 minutes. Same great results… this recipe is a keeper!

Happy Baking!
