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.

The first corn of season. I went to the farmer's market yesterday and came home with a dozen ears of corn, beets, cabbage, zucchini, basil, and freshly dug potatoes. I grilled some chicken thighs and legs and make a batch of pesto to drizzle over the grilled corn. We ate outside and set off some fifth of July fireworks.
We aren't going on a big vacation this summer, so we are taking several "family field trips." I've been wanting to come to the Frontier Culture Museum since the first time I saw the sign from I-81, and we finally went on the 4th of July. We missed the pie eating contest, but the kids did the sack race, a seed spitting contest, and played games. I wish we lived closer so that the children could do one of their camps.
