food and stuff

Yesterday and today I had bison ribeye steak. It was so good. Incredibly tender, tasty, good stuff. It was a splurge, yes, and I can't get it again for a while, but for this weekend, yes, good stuff.

Me: I do actually have a list of animal meats that I want to try, I guess that's my bucket list... you know, alligator, rabbit, kangaroo, quail...

Huxrin: Maybe for your birthday we could do a meat tapas kind of thing.

And if I do go to Florida, alligator is not that hard to get, really.

Anyway! I trimmed the old leaves off the squash plants and two of them are still gamely producing. The tomato plants are so big and heavy they're distorting the tomato prison, which is only PVC pipe and bird netting. If we didn't have that to support them, I think they'd collapse under their own weight.

Corn OTOH is probably toward the end - still eating it but not much time left on those.

Basil is bolting.

We harvested an entire two peapods! :D :D :D

Have you ever tried reindeer meat?

Hmm... you know, I'm not sure. I've had venison in Alaska but I don't think it was reindeer meat specifically. Well, I'll add it to the list anyway! :D

I also want to try cloudberries someday.

Cloudberries on their own are pretty sour. But in a jam... *slurp*

I wish I could get the jam here.

I've tried everything except the kangaroo (except in jerky form). It's all very tasty.

Wow, so much of your garden is past. We are just starting here.

Since our spring starts so early down here, we have to hurry before it gets too hot. By July it'll be just too hot for most garden plants - enough water can't compensate for the heat and strong sun.

That said, Dad says maybe next year we can do some raised beds instead, but of course finding a place to put them that gets enough daily sun in spring, what with the waterfall in the back yard, that's challenging.

I didn't realize it gets that hot that early there. By July we are also very hot, but we don't tend to warm up until May. The corn and stuff does okay over the winter, but the tomatoes need the sun.

We just have one raised bed and it gets too much shade to put much of anything in it. Sigh...

A waterfall, huh? That sounds lovely.

Yeah, if you search through my "garden" tag you'll see pix of the patio and some of the waterfall. It came with the house. :P

Nice. Our friends have one as part of their pool and I love listening to it.
