Channa & Aloo

Hello from here.

We went for a walk around 7:30 this morning, and there was fog rising off the road. By the time the sun came out we were hot, peeling jackets and snowpants. Sally even took off her socks! It boded well for the kale we just transplanted, and for the arugula still in the garden. 

On our walk we stopped to return some library books, and then we went for breakfast at the Flying Fish. We had two quiches and a coffee, played with Eli on the slide on the deck, and then picked up our milk and walked home. It was a good way to start the day.

It was especially good in light of the fact that later on, we're going to have a cook-a-thon. Alex has been wanting Channa and Aloo, a kind of curried chickpeas, carrots, and potatoes he ate when he lived in Trinidad. He wants them with roti and curried goat, and so that is what we will be making. When Sally wakes up we're going to make the green seasoning, and the chickpeas are already on to boil. 

We'll report back shortly.

Elspeth - can you give more info on the transplanted kale that you mention in the blog? Is it for spring crop or did you move the plants to a more protected location for winter? I'm from NW CT and am wondering about this tidbit of info. Thank you!

Hi Linda,

The kale are medium-size plants I planted in our outdoor garden earlier this summer (early August, I think). I transplanted them into our greenhouse to weather the winter. I hope this helps!

All the best,
