Thanks to El Niño and his partner in crime Global Warming, we had an unusually warm December up at Katchkie Farm. The bizarre temperatures meant we were harvesting everything from delicate herbs to hardy greens all month long.

Even the bees were busy in December
The result? All the fixings for a perfect New Year's Day menu. Everything in bold below was freshly harvested from the fields!

It's hard to believe we harvested some of these vegetables just this past week! However, temperatures are starting to drop, so it may have very well been our last fresh farm supper for a while. It's a good thing - time to start up on our New Year's resolutions! Well, as soon as the leftovers are all gone...
