Welcome to austinagrodolce … My family and I garden with more intention and enthusiasm than allocated budget or overall design plan. It shows. Wildlife populations don't seem to notice our lack of cohesive design, they just like the native plants here. It seems by growing local we've thrown out a welcome mat. Occasionally, we're surprised at who (and what) shows up.

Tomorrow, Monday, begins a new era in the culinary life of this household.
Tomorrow, theory meets the table. Principle turns to practice.
Tomorrow I will travel just a few blocks to pick up the first of many weekly baskets provided in return for my subscription to a "community sustainable agriculture" outfit called Tecolote Farm.
What is in season is what we will get. This will require a stretch of imagination in order to prepare and consume certain quantities of what is actually able to be grown, right here, right now.
Can a couple of fairly picky eaters and sometimes lazy cooks get through a basket of fresh seasonal produce week to week without getting bored and/or letting unacceptable amounts go to waste? Stay tuned.....
