Plants, animals, and people living in Coastal North Carolina are influenced by large, shallow bodies of water, called "Sounds." The Sound's daily influence can be a challenge or a gift. The word "sound" also means "in good condition; not damaged, injured, or diseased." Sound Harvest and Garden will try to reflect both those meanings, as I aim for sound vegetables, herbs, chickens, eggs, and ornamentals, all from my home by Core Sound.

Citrus pasta, yum
What do you do with 20 pounds of orangequats? Everything you can think of! Here is pasta with olive oil, garlic, red pepper flakes, spinach and...orangequats! I adapted a Giada De Laurentis recipe (spaghetti with lemon, basil and salmon) substituting my fresh citrus for the lemon juice and zest, increasing the quantities of both, and chopping the whole rind and pulp since orangequats rinds are sweet and the juice, though tart, is milder than lemon. It was an amazing lunch, served with local Spanish mackerel.
