Als ich wisse das Morgen der Erde enden wuerde, immernoch wurd ich mein Apfelbaum pflanzen.

Even if I knew the world would perish tomorrow, I would still plant my apple tree. - Martin Luther

"Factory work's easier on the back, and I don't mind it, understand, but a man becomes what he does. Got to watch that. That's why I keep at farmin' although the crops haven't ever throve. It's the doin' that's important." Madison Wheeler in Blue Highways by William Least Heat Moon

Three Simple Spring Dishes

Here are some great ideas for the greens in your garden.  They're so simple they barely qualify as recipes at all.  I pulled the last freezer meal out this evening - I'll be counting on these quick, no fuss recipes from now until the end of school.

Spinach Feta and Red Pepper Omlet

Saute some spinach and roasted red pepper (frozen or canned work fine).  Remove from skillet.  Scramble two eggs with a little milk.  Pour into a skillet that is well greased.  Cook until partially set, add filling and some feta.  Fold in half, then microwave for a few seconds to finish setting the egg and melting the cheese.

Asian Salad

Inspired by Easy Vegan Zee


Combine in a jelly jar -  1/4 c. olive oil, 2 T maple syrup, 2 t. lime juice, 1 T tahini, 1 t. sesame oil, 1 t. soy sauce, 1 T. sesame seeds and some fresh chopped ginger.  Shake.


Layer greens, green onion, peanuts or sunflower seeds, and currants or raisins in a bowl.  Top with dressing.

Roasted Asparagus with Goat Cheese and Walnut Topping

Inspired by Simply in Season

Toss asparagus with olive oil.  Place on baking sheet.  Sprinkle garlic on top and roast at 350 until crisp tender and carmalized. 

Mix goat cheese, walnuts, salt and chives together to taste.  Sprinkle on top of warm asparagus.
