It was a busy day yesterday. Before Kathy’s birthday dinner, I took a long walk down the Hudson and before that? Put up the first food of the season. Ramps and Asparagus.

Abigail is going on a three day school kayak trip with 11 other kids in her grade tomorrow. They kayak the Hudson and start out near Beacon. It is part of their Experiential Education class. She claims to not be looking forward to it (which is probably true as the weather is supposed to be bleeh at best) but I suspect, in the end she will enjoy it.
However, that meant that the early morning, late afternoon and late night, were filled with, ” I need…” and “Where did we put…” and “I forgot…” so there was not a lot of time to get out and shoot.
I decide to try an interior still life that covered the last three days of kitchen fun…
Pickled ramps and sourdough. The ramps in red were blanched and preserved in red wine vinegar bath (red wine/sugar/water) with a garlic clove, red pepper flakes/sour salt added to the jar. The ramps in white were brined and preserved in a white wine vinegar bath (sugar/fennel seed/coriander seed/ dried red chiles/) with sour salt added to the jar.
Three evenings play.
One days work
