100-Metre Breakfast

This morning celebrated Sarah's birthday, and also our visiting intern Charlotte's 19th birthday, with fresh strawberry shortcake, whipped cream with maple syrup, and carrot-plum-kale-apple juice. All from our garden (OK, the whipped cream from our cow share up the road and the flour from our grains CSA two farms over).

Breakfast yesterday: strawberries on granola, potato-egg pancakes, and strawberries, kale-spinach-crabapple yogurt smoothie. Again, every ingredient except the granola from our garden (or from the root cellar or canning shelves from last year's harvest). Backyard bounty.

Cheap, local, fresh, organic, healthy (eaten within an hour of picking), low carbon footprint, supports the local economy, and so so so satisfying. And oh ya, yummmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm!
