Pulled Pork in the Cariboo

Pulled Pork in the Cariboo

We have been eating well this last week, meals are getting to be back to normal meaning our dinners induce food comas after eating like our first Pulled Pork that we had here! Yes Morgyn set up the big blue drum smoker on our deck and we smoked a pork shoulder all day. Our block must have been wondering what the new ladies were cooking! We shared a plate with our neighbor and she really enjoyed it! This time we made the sauce less sweet and more Italian style with Italian herbs and tomato sauce..it was delicious! Pork Shoulder in the Brine. We left it in the brine over night before smoking it. Here is our big blue drum Smoker! 🙂 Morgyn adding some Hickory wood chips..the puppies are helping! Humble Dog and Mr Dog checking out the smell of the smoker! Mr Dog recently had surgery. He is alright now though! Pork Shoulder after 6 hours on the smoker! Time to take off and finish in the oven! First a bit of Olive Oil.. 6 hours later out of our oven! Looks wonderful! Time to pull it! Our yummy sauce.. My Pulled Pork Wrap! Morgyn’s Pulled Pork...
Moving our Greenhouse

Moving our Greenhouse

We moved our Greenhouse to the Cariboo now! It was a bit of a challenge moving the plants but we covered our trailer and tied down the plywood to the top of the trailer. It worked super well, and we brought the rest in the back of our truck! A few truck loads later all our peppers, tomatoes and flowers were up here!   Pepper flower forming on one of our #peppers! Starting to pack up the #greenhouse! Some of our #tomatoes and #peppers   Some of our #flowers                   Our #tomatoes! One of our Tomatillos! This one is a purple Tomatillo 🙂   Ready to pack them all up!   More #peppers Such beautiful plants! Datura and Amaranths A #pepper starting to form! Lots of #pepper flowers on these ones! Greenhouse load one ready! Here they have giant moths! Also giant mosquitos..we call them tiger mosquitos since they are so big and really take a chunk out of your arms! Squishy cat napping.. After putting the #peppers on the deck. We will eventually have a new greenhouse but until then they will be here.. Tomato plants and Darwin! Weather has been great here! Our plants are loving it! Some of our herbs! More #tomatoes! Lemon Balm 🙂 It tastes just like...
Puppies will Play

Puppies will Play

Our dogs LOVE it at our place in the Cariboo! They have so much space to play and they sure love barking at the neighbor dogs too! Here’s some photos of them that Morgyn took in “sport” mode with our Nikon...
Honey Harvest May 2016

Honey Harvest May 2016

Honey harvest in May 2016 was both saddening and celebratory. We inspected the hive first to see if any activity was going on, but just as Morgyn thought the bees died over the winter as there was a draft that was in the boxes causing the bees to not make it. There was still lots of honey and we managed to save quite a bit of it. It was very sad to see our bees not make it but it happens sometimes. We hope to have more bees at our new...

Morel Feast

Morel Feast

Morchella, the true morels, is a genus of edible mushrooms closely related to anatomically simpler cup fungi. These distinctive fungi appear honeycomb-like, with their cap composed of a network of ridges with pits (thanks wiki) We discovered some Morels on Easter weekend in our yard! We weren’t sure what they were so we asked a few people on one of my favorite gardening forums the helpful gardener and a friendly member helped us out a bit. He told us what to look for and where to find them. Its really neat how we just came across them in our yard. Of course we did a lot more research but Morgyn had a pretty strong feeling after reading so many Chef articles that yes indeed those were the delicacy we had thought they were! So we fried them up and used the left over buttery mushroom sauce for a pasta dish that was out of this world! No they are not magic mushrooms, but they sure are deliciously earthy and buttery!  ...

Making Cherry Wine

Making Cherry Wine

It has been hot here in Vancouver BC for the last week or two that is for sure! Even though Summer hasn’t officially arrived it has on our thermostats! According to the thermostat on our chicken coop it has reached 30C and above and holy smokes is it nice to have A/C in our living room! Being outside mind you is like living in some tropical place that is for sure! We have to go outside to water our peppers and flowers, and now we have things in our pea bed as well! We have a few squash and pumpkins growing in it, a few Cesar beans, and some different varieties of peas such as purple cow peas and sweet shelling peas. Our plants over all are doing quite well, had a bit of aphids on our Borage but I sprayed it and then cut off the damaged ends. Morgyn installed a hose for me to water my plants out in front and she has a nice new wand for her hose as well for the peppers. We also bought some tomato plants so we can do some tomato sauce again this fall. Everyone’s plants are producing flowers and fruit these days, our friends and family tell and show photos of their pretty flowers and awesome vegetables they are growing. It is really amazing this year the things people have in their gardens! Our friends in town have a few fruit trees and asked us if we’d like to come and pick some cherries! We of course thought of all the things we could do with them then an...
