Garden Growing....

Garden Growing.....

Yes, last blog I said I was definitely going to try my hand at growing a garden!  All organic.  So here's the update/progress for this week.    

So far, we have pressure canned our first run of beans, which was easier than I thought!  It was time consuming but I believe worth it!  The beans look amazing!  I figured we can use these beans through out the year in soups, or with potatoes or roasted.  So many options!  I am excited to have fresh green beans this winter!  

We have already roasted some squash!  The squash is so good.  It has a sweet taste when roasted with salt, pepper and avocado oil.  So yummy and simple!, just like my grandparents grew their garden.

Cucumbers...yum.  What can I say?  So crisp, cool and refreshing.  We have picked quite a few!

Waiting on the tomatoes.  They are still green.  Idea:  Fried Green Tomatoes.  Who likes them?  See below for a recipe.

Corn is still growing.  Starting to see the silks growing out..I am thinking that's a good thing.

Idea:  Fried Green Tomatoes would be great!

Fried Green Tomatoes
  1/2 c cornmeal
  1/4 cup of all purpose flour
  1 tsp sugar
  salt and pepper
  cayenne pepper - use as little or much as you want
  Oil for frying
  Slice tomatoes and lay on a towel to absorb moisture.  Combine the next five ingredients.  Heat a cast iron skillet with oil (about 1/4" of oil).  Drench the tomatoes in the mixture to coat and then fry until golden brown - Turning once.  Remove to a paper towel to drain.  Add salt and pepper while hot.  AND Enjoy this tangy treat.

Take a second to comment below your ideas for gardens and how to use the beautiful bounties we receive.

Until next time...take your journey to health and is good!
