maggots.  Grain products can also be added, although that may invite some unwanted vermin (we already have rats).  Instead, give the bread to your chickens.  Animal manure is also a beneficial fertilizer, we would use cow manure and bunny pellets (what we currently use on our garden).  It works great!




The meal


In honor of the changing weather, our meal will be a celebration of remaining foods in the garden.  The three course meal is as follows:


I could grow the vast majority of the food in this meal.  Here is the ingredient list and if it is from the garden or bought elsewhere:


  • Baby spinach (garden)
  • Kale (garden)
  • Romain lettuce (garden)
  • Apple (garden)
  • Carrots (garden)
  • Goat cheese (garden)
  • Raspberry vinaigrette (made with raspberries from garden, but other non-garden products too)
  • Chicken (garden)
  • Zucchini (garden)
  • Patty pan squash (garden)
  • Onions (garden)
  • Tomato (garden)
  • Peppers (garden)
  • Corn (garden) – spices not garden
  • Phyllo dough – not garden
  • Brown sugar – not garden
  • Cream cheese – (garden)?
  • Pears (garden) – glaze not garden




It really is a mostly home grown meal!  I am sure the other ingredients could be procured locally.  I must say, after making this menu, I am inspired to have a end of summer feast with my family – featuring this exact menu!
