The Walden Effect: Farming, simple living, permaculture, and invention.

A morning's harvest

Basket of produce

Cooking fajitasThis is the time of year when I go out to the garden to weed and come back with a basket of produce.

The peppers and squash (and half of an onion) turned into our lunch, the other onions (missed during the main harvest) hit the drying racks, and the excess cucumbers went to Kayla to become pickles.

Now, let's see what comes out of the garden today....

One of the things I've learned over the years is that you do NOT put uncooked squash in the freezer! It comes out, well, yucky is the polite word. My high school friend's Italian mom gave me this recipe: take onions, fry them a little in olive oil, basil and oregano, then add zucchini (or you can use any type of summer squash), and add that, then after the zucchini softens up, put in tomato paste (or sauce) and mix, then add some cheese on top and voila! - zucchini parmigiana! Yummy! :)
