This celadon beauty is an heirloom pumpkinâ€”a jarrahdale blue.
It grew at the end of a long and persistent vine that originated in the flower bed off my urban front porch and tendriled its way through the yard to the street. Iâ€™d like to claim that I had something to with it, but other than allowing last yearâ€™s pumpkins to rot and slump into that flower bed, I did not. My prized baby blue is a true volunteer.
Hurray for volunteers!
Itâ€™s in that spirit that this blog is created:
A place to share stories, tips, and recipes about foods that Iâ€™m cooking at the moment, or finding at a farmerâ€™s market, in a friends garden, my front yard, or teaching about in a class. For all our obsession on food in our cultureâ€”the fast, the slow, the exotic, the celebratedâ€”I find that focusing on what we can make simply, with fresh ingredients, can best nourish body and spirit.
Good Food Matters.
