The Complete Kitchen Garden Winner

Last Monday was the warmest day we’ve had all year in Philly. It reached nearly 87 degrees and I had the good fortune to spend a chunk of the afternoon outside at an urban farm in Fishtown. They were open for a special lunch and tour for some visitors in town for the Council on Foundations and I was there taking pictures for work (my real job). The lunch was delicious, but I was most delighted by the fact that they served their iced water in a collection of quart jars.

Later that night, after a gorgeous afternoon in the sunshine, I started to get a sore throat. And I’ve been barely functioning ever since. Doesn’t seem fair, does it?

Anyway, I thought I’d give you a little story/excuse as to why I’ve yet to post a winner in the most recent giveaway and why I haven’t followed through on my promise to show you what I made with the buttermilk leftover from my cultured butter project. You’re going to have to wait a bit longer on the buttermilk, but I have picked a winner for The Complete Kitchen Garden.

Congratulations Stephanie, #234. I’ll be in touch shortly!

  1. 87?! That sounds heavenly… it is a very cold, WET and dreary 50 degrees over here in Portland. Sorry you’re sick – drink some Throat Coat tea with honey! It’s the best.

  2. Hope you’re feeling better soon. We’ll be in the 80s again this Wednesday. It’s been a crazy Spring so far.

    Where is the urban farm in Fishtown? I’m trying to picture where there might be some open land (lot). Thanks!
