Fall Harvest Shnackum

img_0077I no longer wake to the morning light filtering through my window or the chickens clucking loudly as they wait for their morning meal. This time of year everything is quiet, muffled by the leaves that still cling to the branches. Preparing yourself in the darkness on these cool, damp mornings is a challenge, its cold when you awake but by mid-afternoon you sit outside attempting to work on maintaining your summer sun-kissed glow. Of course productivity is low when the sun is shining, but only by a definition that encompasses school work. You justify climbing in the afternoons or hanging out in a hammock as necessary, because really the days where we can still wear our Chacos and tank-tops are numbered. I began writing this last week, when the rainy days were looming overhead. As I look out my window and see the slow drizzle and grey sky, I am thankful I took the time to play. Quick snacks from the garden are slowly being replaced by crockpot soups, but if you wish to make one more delectable shnackum, I’d suggest this quick treat!


Sophie’s Quifullsizerenderck and Easy Slaw (that really does not require directions and hardly calls for any ingredients):

  • Cabbage (chopped thinly)
  • Beets (grated)
  • Carrots (grated)
  • Beet greens (finely chopped)
  • Chard (finely chopped)
  • Shallots (finely chopped)
  • Planet GFS dressing
  • Salt and pepper


  1. Mix all ingredients into a bowl
  2. Add anything else that’s growing rampant in your garden
  3. Let sit for a few hours to let all the goodness meld together
  4. ENJOY
