slow month

Here’s a pic of my peak tomato harvest a little while back. It has trailed off since, there are still a lot of green ones and I’m not sure whether to pick or not. The temps are still in the high 50s at night.

September is almost over now, but hopefully we’ll get in a few food posts. I’ve been occupied with some work and Chelle was in the midst of a hurricane. Luckily she’s unscathed and promised to post more food soon.

heart shaped bread mishap

I shaped some dough into a batard (a shorter wider baguette, inspired by an episode of ‘Baking with Julia’), and after resting I made three slits. 

But when I was transferring it into the oven, it fell in and folded over itself. I decided to make an extra slit on the bottom piece that was sticking out and baked it all the same (in an enameled cast iron pot). When it came out it was strangely symmetrical and heart shaped. ❤ 

The crust was perfect and the interior chewy and tender, the holes weren’t as large as I had hope but it wasn’t overly dense.
