I'm Still Alive! - First Harvest of the Year
Yes, I'll confirm that I'm still alive! At the moment, we're slowly getting settled into our now home/community. I will admit that I've been feeling a bit sad these past few days. It was harder to say goodbye to our half-acre home than I would have expected. I'll be staying there a couple of nights a week (when I'm in Boston for work) until we're able to sell it, but deep down inside, I know it just won't be same as living there. In fact, I'm sure it'll be down right depressing since most of our furniture has now been moved out.
Before we left, I remembered to harvest some tatsoi to take with us. The outer few leaves were a bit hole-y but most of the rosette was fine. Some of it went to a stir-fried noodle dish I made last night. It was a tasty reminder of the old garden. I'm gonna try to harvest the rest of it when I'm in town again.
I also picked some kale, which I'll probably freeze and use within a soup during one of these particularly brutal Vermont winter days.
