This is the first year we've grown strawberries- we planted three different varieties, all with slightly different characteristics and ripening times. These are Mara de Bois and they are hands down the best strawberries I've ever had. The flavor is unbelievable! Like I've never actually had a strawberry that tastes like other things flavored with strawberry are trying to achieve- haha, does that make sense? I ate one and it felt like I was tasting a strawberry for the first time. I only wish they were bigger! It takes a lot of little berries to fill up a container. I guess that's probably the trade off though! #strawberryseason#strawberries#homegrown
Lunch with a view! On the weekend, the kids and I trekked out to visit our favourite farmers, and help out with weeding. The kids never need any convincing about heading out there as they love helping out, chasing the kitties and feeding the chickens! It's so beautiful and peaceful there, we always come back with our hearts full and our clothes dirty! If you live in the Edmonton area and would like to get farm fresh veggies each week all summer long, there are still a few spots left in their CSA. Send Jenny a DM @anthem_hills_farmer .
Yess 15 minute broad beans dish from harvest to table 😄. With black beluga lentil pasta & sage. With a good grate of old dutch cheese for the farmer and some nutr. yeast flakes for me 😊 #ziejeweldathetsnelkan#tuinbonenpret
One of Steve's horses at #braeburnlodge (See previous post). He also has a gorgeous pack of dogs, all from the same family. I asked him the name of one of them that had a blue and a brown eye, "Names Blue" he said. "And this one?" I asked. "Tub." I'll let you all guess why. I didn't get the horses name but I know he also has pigs and when someone asked if he eats them or sells them he told us neither, "I'll burry them eventually," he said. Steve's a vegetarian. It's all the more endearing to imagine him playing with his pigs as pets. 🐷 🐴 🐶 #thecolorfulfivepercent#mytinyatlas#farmlife#explorecanada#tourismcanada#peopleoftheyukon#travelyukon
