Kitty and Garden Goods

I love this time of year in the garden. It just keeps on giving. I only wish it would last a bit longer! Today I got the goods to make an artichoke risotto with my Italian friend Maria’s recipe. You need artichokes, onion, parley, leeks (mine are not ripe yet so had to buy), and carrots. I made some stock with a local chicken and am ready to go. Kitty was pretty excited about the flowers.

I have made a pact with myself to try to post a photo a day. I most certainly take one, so now just need to make them live. Stay tuned!

Happy Sunday.

I am loving my garden right about now. I have been watering like crazy as it has been so dry. The results make it all worth the while. Bon weekend!
