Menu Week of April 6

Menu Week of April 7

Spring is on the horizon.  We’re still waking up to snow some mornings but many of the days are quite nice. This weekend we started tomatoes, broccoli, cabbage, pumpkin and jalapenos in the house. Joe also planted peas in the garden and got lots of the areas ready for planting when it’s time. Last weekend we planted the three cold frames. Here’s a picture of those from last fall. We were able to get greens out of them until early December which was great. This year we’ll use the cold frames to get greens earlier (in theory) and then plant it mid summer to use as a fall/winter garden.

Our neighbor raises pigeons. He brought us several bags of processed pigeons earlier in the week and Joe chicken fried them for supper last night. This was the first time we’d have pigeon. It was different than I expected. I’ll have to try it again. Also on the menu this week a beef roast from our CSA, pinto beans and cod.
