Year 4 = N.F.A.

The Almar garden is three times the size.

The grow light is mounted.

The seeding station is heated.

Hops, peas, spinach, arugula, turnips, radishes and brocoli rabe are in the ground.

Tomatoes, tomatillos, eggplants, brocoli, brussels, kale, romanescos, herbs are germinating.

No fucking around!

Maybe I'll even blog a little more...

Alta off piste adventures with Larry, Jamie & Peeps

Larry Wagenberg hooked this video up after our trip to Alta in January. It was fun to explore Alta and Snowbird with a group of great skiers. They helped me up my game and sent me down a few chutes that would probably qualify as "out of my element"... Good stuff!

Keep an eye out for the guy in the grey jacket with poor form and no of those conditions got remedied on this trip...

Nightly Harvest

Two posts in one night? Believe it! Its a blogging explosion!

The Almar garden is in full effect right now. After coming back from a 3 day trip, there was all kinds of chaos...tomato plants crashing out of their cages, cucumbers going ballistic, the first eggplants and a couple of godzilla squashes, with one pictured alongside a couple of bottles for scale. that would be the polite picture...

Its pretty cool to go in there and find harvestable veggies every night. I threw a handful of san marzano and yellow pear tomatoes into a sauce with an eggplant...from garden to pan in a couple of minutes. Now I just need to figure out what to do with 4 pounds of squash!
