Are You A Locavore?
Do you buy most of your meat and produce from local farmers? We love the sustainability and support to local businesses that being a locavore encourages, so we've done one better by growing our very own produce. I think a wise person once said, "You'll never taste anything as good as what you've grown yourself." We agree.
Our garden is coming along so nicely and I wanted to share some pics with you. Feel free to link back to your garden- we love to share stories with our Wildwood community.
Our Japanese eggplant are growing by the day. These "nasu" (that's eggplant in Japanese!) have only tiny, edible seeds and a skin much more tender than their larger counterparts. Once they're ready, we'll probably just slice them up, brush them with olive oil, sprinkle a bit of sea salt and freshly ground pepper and then sear them over a hot hibachi grill inside of our wood oven until they're tender. They'd also be fantastic slow roasted with a good smear of sweet, red miso paste. Who's getting hungry?
