If we're talking about eating local and in season then leeks are going to be on the menu in January. So dust off your favourite leek vegetables are look here to try some new ones. Last week Brent, (one of our farmmates) messaged out to the farm chat asking if anyone wanted to join him in a leek challenge. We were invited to bring a leek dish to our long table on Thursday evening and we could come help ourselves to portions of everyone's offerings. It was a lot of fun. We had leek frittata, sausage, leek and potato soup, leekie pie and everyone's favourite; carmelized leek and bacon dip! I'd love to add your favourite leek recipes to the mix!
It’s a good time to remember, to review and place ourselves back on those beautiful summer evenings; the lingering, the conversation friends, the beauty, the bird song. Last summer we hosted our first evening of bouquet making where each pair of guests was greeted with a bountiful pail of flowers. We were spread out around our orchard accompanied by flowers, wine and friends. There was playfulness, creativity, a bit of trepidation and joy as flowers were designed into bountiful arrangements. I’m sure we’ll do it again this summer - can’t wait!
