Chive Blossom | egg & dart blog

It’s been too hot to think, and by extension, to blog. Several days hovering around 100°F and I hope the end is in sight for next week. In any case, it has been great for my cooking creativity and I’ve came up with a few make-ahead, serve cold meals that have refreshed and consoled us after scorching days. I’m planning on sharing one of my favorites on Monday!

The heat has also been great for the windowsill garden which I shade everyday with a kind of homemade plant tent. The biggest problem I’ve had over these past years living on the 6th and, now, 3rd floors is that the sun and wind currents just turn the soil to dust in no time. This year I decided to shade my plant babies on the hottest days and it’s been working wonderfully! Everything is growing in leaps by the day and I’m afraid they’ll just go right to bolting if we can’t eat them fast enough. It’s so amazing how much you can get out of such a small surface area.

I hope you’re staying cool where ever you are and happy Friday!

Belgian garden path | egg & dart blog

We are roasting in Paris today, it is supposed to get up to 91°F. Not at all this Mainer’s cup of (iced) tea. And maybe for that reason the internet is cutting in and out (mostly out) every few minutes making my loving list plans impossible. So let’s take it easy today and let Newton up there lead us into the garden for the weekend, ok? I thought you might find that a good plan.

I seem to always have around-the-apartment projects on my weekend list but I also have knitting on there this weekend. This past week I managed to finish a knit that I’ve had hanging around for three years and that means I can justify starting something new! What do you have on your weekend list?

Radishes | egg & dart blog

It’s a sunny, warm Friday here and another week has melted into a long holiday weekend here in France (three in the month of May!). I’m feeling buoyed by a clear head and small victories (and the pieces of sweet strawberries Élie is feeding me) after a number of false starts yesterday. Choosing joy today! And so I’m looking forward to trying out a simple pickled radish recipe with these radishes this weekend, as you may have seen on instagram already. I anticipate pickled radishes on everything for a while!

So I’m wishing you a good Friday and a lovely weekend. What will you be up to?

xo,
