Corn. Look at it. Lovely, green, first tackled by Mesoamerican indigenous peoples.
Then…it was tackled in a different way by the damn deer. They ate it. Almost all of it. *sigh*
We sprayed some foul-smelling, organic concoction around the garden and beds (it involved “putrefying egg solids,” which is truly disgusting) to ward them off until we could get a fence up.
I spent the rest of that day puttering around in the garden, which looks like this:
I thinned out the carrots, dill, and pole beans. Weeded the tomatoes and various squash beds. Mourned the corn when I was near it. I did, though, collect the little dill plants that would have been discarded otherwise and took them into the house. There, I made Dill Almond Milk Biscuits.
Basically take your regular buttermilk biscuit recipe, replace the buttermilk with almond milk, and add chopped dill.
Honestly, it was all very aromatic, but it didn’t translate as strongly in taste. You could taste the dill a bit, but not as much as I’d hoped. Oh well…biscuits is biscuits, and we nommed them up over the next few days.
