THANK YOU TO OUR FOLLOWERS WHO SEND US GARDEN GIFTS!

Receiving mail from a content creator such as myself is always gratifying. Sharing seeds, plants, seedlings, and ideas is an important element in the growth of our gardens! In this blog post I will be sharing some of the seeds I received; some of which are most interesting to me because I have never planted them before. One is the Patty Pan Squash, this squash resembles a flying saucer and they grow in abundance; so you want to be sure NOT to plant too many unless you are donating to a Farmers Market or have a community garden donation source. Another alternative to donating is Canning and storing for long term use. Which brings me to my next topic canning. Learning how to can is an essential tool to have for the times we are in today. When growing up our grand parents made sure we had the edible resourses from their gardens to self sustain our families. Another seed recieved was the Kolhrabi, this is another plant we have yet to grow in our gardens here. This is an exteremely medicinal plant that will be discussed in a future blog. I hope you enjoy the vlog and

PICTURED : GREEN ONION GOING TO SEED!

These are the typical Green Onions commonly know as the Scallions that can be easily grown in a window sill, a container or in ground giving you year round access to onions! I have always planted this variety of onion for their convenience and availablilty. Cooking a meal and being able go to the window or yard and pinch a few is always gratifying to me, but the really cool part is that you can go to your local Farmers Market or grocery store and purchase some with the roots intact and probagate your own for future onion harvest year after year! This is a game changer or those who are gardening on a budget, buy once eat many! You can allow then to go to seed or pinch off that beautiful white flower to stop the process and keep growing the onion. The next alternative is to harvest the seeds after they have dried waiting until you can see the little black speckss; these are the seeds! Happy Harvest!

PLANTED 30 EARS OF CORN!!!

Planting corn is a fun thing to do whether you have a small space or a large one. Corn comes in many varieties and can be used for grilling, creaming, on the cob or for popping! Corn tends to grow up to six feet tall and Sun Flowers are up there with them! The ears are silky and watching grow can be anticipitory because they love lots fo water, grow real fast make sure you record their progress because you will be picking them soon.

CANDIED TURKEY BACON & HOME FRIES

This video shows the making of Candied Turkey Bacon using maple syrup at the end of frying. I tried this method over and oevr and it does not disappoint! I always fry the bacon in Extra Virgin Olive Oil with the temperature on medium then to low. My secret ingredient is adding a cap full of Liquid Smoke Hichory flavored to bring out the bacon flavor we tend to look for in pork bacon and, it works fabulously every time! Flipping bacon constantly to ensure the bacon does not burn or over cook. When the bacon is done in the same pan I add the maple syrup which will bubble up and then glaze the bacon hard. Making a crispy bacon that taste like pork bacon without compromising! Enjoy!

GARDEN UPDATE

Planting squash can be easy it seems for some, but for us having them grow into fruition is the hard part. I have had the opportunity to grow this beautiful plant in several varieties on several occasions; the thing is I have always planted them in containers. With that being said, I have yet to have one grow into aduldhood, and always watching them fall off either at the very beginning stages of fruting or shortly there after. Next season my goal is to find a space for them in the ground to see it this will yeild a healthy crop for us pray for us! Thank you for visiting the vlog!

HOW TO GET YOUR BLUEBERRIES TO BLOOM!

We have had our Blueberry Bush for about a year now. We purchased it from a local nursery here in San Diego California. We always try to support our local garden nurseries and this nursery had what we wanted and more! When we purchased the Bush we didntl quite know how to care for it. Not knowing that it was an acid loving plant we just let it sit and watered it as we do the rest of our garden. We quickly notice thst she was NOT happy and we did our due diligence to research the matter. That's when we found out that we neede to purchase azealia food becasue they are acid lovers as well. This was indeed what the bus was asking for and we finally harvested some berries! How do you care for your Blueberry Bush? Are their different varieties we are not aware of?
