summer camp

Ella went to an engineering/ music/ art camp last week, spending the whole week in a gorgeous lab and performance space. We laughed that she went to "camp" and spent the whole week indoors. Her group created digital music using computer programing, up-cycled materials, and 3D printed elementsThe girls made their bodies part of the instrument as they wet their arms and made themselves part of the circuitry.

getting funky

I bought ten pounds of organic cabbage last week, and I turned four of them into kraut. Hard to believe that four whole cabbages fit in this crock, but now it has wilted down to about half. I hadn't had a chance to open it until today, but it looks good and smells, um. fermented.

I tasted some kimchi this week from Gnomestead Hollow Farm and Forage, but I haven't made any since early spring. I want to make the white pear summer kimchi from Edward Lee's Smoke and Pickles.

pink grapefruit, beet, black grapes, and kale

Imagine how you would feel if you had this for breakfast. I've lost seven pounds and fit into some clothes I bought years ago and never fit into. It is the perfect time of year for this kind of eating.
