I found this recipe for "Fresh From the Farm Vegetable Soup with Leeks and Kale" and had to give it a try. It was delicious, in my humble opinion. I can only imagine how much tastier it was with fresh from the farm veggies. Maybe this spring or summer I can experience that.
There's no need to post a recipe on my blog because the original recipe was spot on. (Well, I did cook my kale; I just haven't acquired the taste for crunchy greens yet.) So, check it out here. In the meantime here's a couple of photos (cell phone photos) to capture the essence of this soup. Definitely yummy.
Now with all this soup making, it's made the wheels in my head start turning. I was excited to start my first cinder block garden this summer. There was definitely so much to learn. All in all it was a great experience. Now I've been rethinking my whole plan; I've sketched out a new layout for my garden beds and am snuggling up with the Kindle App edition of Square Foot Gardening and an heirloom seed catalog. Yep, the wheels in my head are definitely turning. You know what that means. :-)
Until next time,
