This last week at Milkwood Farm we’re kicking into the swing of Spring, and welcoming new crew to the Farm. There was a Mushroom Cultivation course held, and much home-cured, home grown, nitrate-free bacon consumed (I cannot tell you the ballpark of yum this equates to. Let’s just say alot).
The Cima di Rapa is growing great guns, though the peas are taking their sweet time. There’s ladybugs out in force, not nearly enough rain, and many bees a-buzzing. At night we dream of load-bearing strawbale reciprocating roof structures, and read about weeds.
Thanks to all the fabulous people we came across this last week – we hope to share some bacon (or maybe just Cima di Rapa) with you soon…
I have the Weed Foragers Handbook, and it is fantastic. I have read a lot of it now. It really gives you to confidence to go eat weeds, and wow, so many common weeds in my own backyard are edible! They have done a great job, and it is a nice small size, so handy for keeping in your backpack or bag!
I would love a post on how to make the bacon!
Does Rose have a recipe / cooking blog attachable to Milkwood? That would be excellent, her creations are wonderful.
No need to get hire pest control service lol
