Thank you to everyone who came out and visited the Boone Street Garden brunch bake sale on New Year's Day!
It was so wonderful getting to see friends and having delicious treats on a nice warm day. Thanks to everyone for the support, and we earned $135 in profit which will certainly go to use in the Boone Street Garden budget.
Here are a few photos from my friend Jon. What a pretty day! The weather was great. We had peach-apple pie filled muffins, oatmeal-serviceberry mini muffins, sausage-egg-kale-black bean bites, a box of coffee, and the bloody marys. All items were made available on a donation basis.
Billy from the Free Farm also took more photos of the make-your-own bloody mary bar so those will be posted soon. One of the visitors said she had always dreamed of doing a make-your-own bloody mary bar so now she could cross it off her list!
Here you can see our lovely neighborhood, Remington (where I live, it's not where the Boone Street Garden is located.)
Various pickles for the bloody-mary garnishes and for people to take in exchange for donation: pickled okra, pickled banana peppers, chili oil, sweet and sour zucchini relish, and pickled green tomatoes and roasted peppers. The cherry tomatoes to the far left have been soaking in vodka, which is another great way to store your summer produce and makes a great bloody mary garnish!
I plan on posting the steps soon for making the bloody marys for any of you who want to host your own party.
Happy New Year everyone!
