What are you gonna do with the cabbage, Cynthia. I have a bunch to use here, and it's tough to get the family to enjoy it as I do.

Very beautiful, Cynthia. And soup for breakfast! Good man.

I love turnips. I even like them sliced and steamed. They're beautiful roasted with other vegetables. I like to pickle them.

Yeah. Eloise was really upset afterwards because the young actress didn't win best actress, but I also wondered if she picked up on some of the misogyny. I need to be more active in helping her find words for dealing with this sort of assault.

I have to say that, in that instance, "that word" was the only one that would do.

I love that you just happen to have an extra box of goblets somewhere in your house.

I love how the cabbage carmelizes when you roast it. The crispy bits are the best parts. I have that book, too, and started roasting cabbage sometimes from her recipe. I never get tired of discovering cabbage's hidden talents.

Van, do you use the cilantro pesto on pasta or just sandwiches? Sounds great with the pepitas. Cynthia, your photos made me say aloud, "Yeah, now we're talking..." I gotta get some 'rugula planted.

Cynthia, your emotions today sound so much like my emotions today. There are days when I'm really okay with not being able to be everywhere and be all of the people I need to be to the people I love. Then there are days when I fail and just want to cry because the love I feel for them and the disappointment I feel in myself are just so huge. Full moon in a day or two.

Wow. That looks amazing. My garlic-ginger chili sauce has that color and texture but not those delicious roasty bits. But the pumpkin curry? In her old Greens Cookbook, Deborah Madison has a winter squash soup with red chili and mint. I rarely get to the mint stage because I just love chilies and winter squash together so much that I'm blinded.

I will meet Van someday when I crash one of your house concerts and bring you a jar of sauerkraut.

It's not vegan, but I make raita a lot with cucumbers, garlic, yogurt, and lemon. This looks pretty in the photo: http://www.cookinglight.com/food/in-season/great-summer-salads-00400000049577/page20.html

Those are pretty peppers on your counter. Your salmon looks amazing. And both of these comments sound a little off-color, I suppose. Hope today is really wonderful for you, Cynthia.

Happy birthday, Ernie! Love that photo. Love "hearing" the boys make brownies.

Wow, that cobbler looks amazing. Sometimes I get the feeling that your garden is a month ahead of ours. Also, what is happening behind the three handsome men in the first photograph? Is that a quilt show?

Be sure to eat those daikon greens! Put them in a fritatta or on some pasta. The root will be lovely pickled quickly with rice vinegar, a bit of sugar, a bit of salt. If you cook it, it will turn sweet, and that's nice, too. Pretty turnips!

I'm touched that you included a photo of Curious Farm's booth (my booth). I'm sorry that I didn't get a chance to chat with you. Please say hello the next time you visit the Beaverton Farmers Market! It's the largest all-agricultural market in Oregon, and I love being there and sharing sauerkraut, kimchi and old-fashioned pickles with folks. I've been reading your blog for years. --cathy from growingcurious and curiousfarm

These are blossoms from the Serviceberry tree in front of our house. This tree is special to me because of its open habit -- very welcoming and right near our front door. It's prettiest right now in April when it... Continue reading
