Fall Cleanup/Planting Garlic

Fall Cleanup/Planting Garlic

“No cook who has attained mastery over her craft ever apologizes for the presence of garlic in her productions.”  Ruth Gottfried, ‘The Questing Cook’ Fall has arrived with its cool temps and shorter days.  For many people, the tomato season was cut short by the excessive moisture leading to fungal problems commonly called “blight”.  Still, […]

Cooking with Fresh Foods

“My grandfather used to say that once in your life you need a doctor, a lawyer, a policeman and a preacher but every day, three times a day, you need a farmer.”  Brenda Schoepp, Pinterest My how things have changed from the time mentioned in the quote above!  Used to be most people ate at […]

Vertical Gardening

“Gardening, it’s a lifelong sport!”  A new phrase I am coining–use it with total abandon! Without a doubt,  vegetable gardening requires significant effort.  Most of the plants are annuals so every year you start afresh:  soils need to be prepped, seedlings grown or bought and carefully nurtured,  weeks of weeding, watering, dealing with bugs, harvesting […]

Direct Sowing

 “If you can sit on the ground with your trousers down, it’s safe to sow your seed.” Folk saying. There is always a warm day in April,  a week or two after the last frost, when I excitedly realize,  “Today I can plant all my early crops!” and, when that inevitably doesn’t happen,  I begin […]

Community Gardening & Starting Seedlings

Each spring…a gardening instinct, sure as the sap rising in the trees, stirs within us. We look about and decide to tame another little bit of ground.” — Lewis Ganttner My first significant garden experience was at a community garden site in Austin, Texas.  A friend was interested in growing the ingredients for homemade salsa.  […]

Concepts in Garden Planning

The gardener is in fact a wilderness advocate of a certain kind. It is when he respects and nurtures the wilderness of his soil and his plants that his garden seems to flourish most. Wildness, he has found, resides not only out there, but right here: in his soil, in his plants, even in himself.― […]

Gardening With Children

To this day I cannot see a bright daffodil, a proud gladiola, or a smooth eggplant without thinking of Papa. Like his plants and trees, I grew up as a part of his garden. ~Leo Buscaglia Wintertime is a great time for reflection, for buying seed, for enjoying the canned and frozen goods from the […]

Seed Saving

“The footsteps of the Master make the best manure.” Roman saying. At first glance, collecting seed from garden plants can seem quite intimidating. How could a home gardener achieve seed as good as the pros? Who has the time? Etc. So, instead, I urge you to think of the benefits: the satisfaction of doing for […]

Common Bugs/ Lawn Mowing Tip

The grass may be greener on the other side of the fence but you still have to mow it. This month we can expect exponential growth among our garden vegetables and  flowers.  Everything bursts at the seams in an array of colors, shapes, fragrances and textures.  Looking out my window, I see potatoes popping out […]

Planting Trees & Preserving Fruit

The best time to plant a tree is 20 years ago; the next best time is now.  ~Chinese proverb. Gardening season slows down significantly as winter approaches.  There is still harvesting of broccoli, kale, chard, Asian greens and lettuce but the pace is so relaxed.  I’ve been reflecting on the bounty of the growing season […]
