heirloom cucumber


Had another fun evening in the garden and orchard with the Nuggets! I picked a bunch of green beans, banana peppers, butternut squash, tomatoes including that monster heirloom beefsteak, a cucumber, some okra that I forgot to include in the pictures, and a big tote full of apples! Found one lonely cicada exoskeleton under the apple trees too (pictured on the butternut squash).

The Mammoth Russian sunflowers are finally blooming and they are enormous! Every bit of 14+ feet tall! Hoping to get some seeds for the Ladies once they ripen before the wild birds grab them all.

I love life on the farm!



Easy lunch. One slice of rye toast, with avocado hummus, sliced cucumbers, and heirloom cherry tomatoes. Salt and red chilli flakes to taste. Arugula and alfalfa sprouts are tossed with olive oil, balsamic vinegar, lemon juice and tahini. Some tempeh bacon on the side for protein and we’re set!

Huge salad platter for dinner tonight again courtesy of @abelandcole ! I really need to remember there’s only 2 of us…! Baked lemon & thyme whole rainbow trout flaked over a bed of cucumber, heirloom tomatoes, lightly buttered jersey royal potatoes and just wilted watercress and rocket (with the heat from the potatoes) all drizzled with a mustard mayo dressing 😊 for #dairyfree#lactosefree just leave out the butter. I’m definitely at my happiest when I’m making foodie creations and hopefully inspiring others to step away from the ready meals and just try something different! #abelandcole#paleo#paleouk#primal#glutenfree#eatclean#jerf#realfood#organic
