Tonight was special, we’ve owned this place for one year and two weeks, to the day. So, this spring we used goats and pigs to clear land for pasture and some of that pasture we turned into garden. Unfortunately we won’t be getting much of a crop as the soil is very nitrogen deficient.
As a result, I don’t expect to have enough potatoes for Winter, and the green and even the yellow beans I interplanted with them are stunted. So, we figure we might as well enjoy them now.
We also have turned our Berkshire Pigs into Pork at this point and that’s currently being processed at the butcher. Today we got the heart and liver. We also picked enough new potatoes, and green and yellow beans, to make a nice supper. We actually bought the onions for the liver and onions, but everything else was grown here. Our first meal grown on Briden Farm. The Liver was like sweet, juicy, and tender… Steak!
