Yesterday when I picked up our weekly Bellair Farm CSA veggies we received a couple fun and unique specimen: fennel bulbs and some garlic scrapes. Fennel I’m quite familiar with, but I wasn’t sure what to do with the fronds. I know they’re edible, but I had a better idea! After lobbing the fronds off the bulbs I decided to make use of their fun frilliness and make a simple bouquet, very inspired by Alison Roman’s bouquet(s) of dill!
Next fun item: Garlic scrapes! I haven’t done anything with them yet, but I plan to make garlic scrape pesto. I think they’re just so lovely and fun with their twisty wildness!!
The fleeting nature of garlic scrapes reminds me of ramp season, another allium, or cousin of garlic. Fleeting time has been on my mind for a couple days; ever since Robbie had to go and point out that E (see new photos!) will never be as small as she is this very day – cue the tears!!
Inspired by thoughts of fleeting veggie season and fleeting time I made another iPhone wallpaper – this time veg themed! I chose this verse from Isaiah
The grass withers, the flower fades,
but the word of our God will stand forever.Isaiah 40:8
