Tell me 2 years ago I would be excited about a vegetable garden, and I would have laughed at you! I love gardening now! I have been slowly starting plant things, this year in my tiny veggie garden I have cucumbers, squash, turnip, carrots, peas, green peppers, potatoes, onions, sunflowers, radishes, beets, broccoli and I think that’s it! For the garden size, I am squishing a lot in there.
Me and Mike attempted to hand till it, however, about 1/3rd in we asked our friends to borrow their tiller, I am very thankful for Jenny and Cody for lending it to us! What would have taken hours of hard labour, took minutes with the tiller.
Contest:I have a challenge for you, in the pictures below, if you comment and can tell me what veggies they all are, you win a free pair of mystery earrings, shipping covered to USA and Canada(via Canada Post once they are off strike!):
PS some people are excluded from this contest as they helped me plant it! 🙂
Also I heard that radishes planted help keep other bugs away! So to experiment I planted some, however, I am not a huge fan of eating a ton of radishes so I looked up recipes with radishes and apparently they are good cooked? I will post once they grow and I cook them:) Here is the recipe, if anyone has ever tired this or tries it let me know! 🙂
20 ounces radishes, sliced
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 tablespoons butter, cut into small pieces
1 cube ice
salt and pepper to taste
- Preheat the grill for high heat.
- Place the radishes, garlic, butter, and ice cube on a double layer of aluminum foil large enough to wrap contents. Season with salt and pepper. Tightly seal foil around contents.
- Place foil packet on the grill, and cook 20 minutes, or until radishes are tender.
Onion & Cheese Omlet
Also yesterday I made an omlet with onion tops!
1 onion top chopped fine
1/4 cup of milk
1/4 shredded cheese
It was awesome! Just fired the onion with a tiny bit of butter, mixed the milk and eggs, fried and flipped and added the cheese!
