For the Love of Gardening…Fall Gardening, That Is
Gardening is one of the most therapeutic things I do, but I haven’t had a lot of time this year to devote to it. That’s why I’m planting a fall garden. Fall gardening can help you reap more delicious veggies from your garden each and every year.
Most of you are probably thinking that it’s far too late to plant a garden now, but that’s far from true. there are several plants that do best in cool weather. Carrots, lettuce, broccoli, kale, cauliflower, onions and even radishes all grow well when it’s cool. This will add beautiful pops of color and bring more delicious food to your family’s table. Why not extend the growing season? It sure beats paying supermarket prices for sub-par tasting vegetables!
Cool Weather Recipes from Your Harvest
I found a cauliflower and radish salad that I’d just love to try that I saw on Taste of Home. It’s just perfect for the veggies that I can grow in my fall garden and will bring something both delicious and nutritious to my family’s table. You’ll need:
- 1 medium head cauliflower, broken into florets
- 1 cup thinly sliced radishes
- 3/4 cup thinly sliced green pepper
- 1 cup (8 ounces) sour cream
- 2 tablespoons grated onion
- 4 to 5 teaspoons lemon juice
- 1 tablespoon Caesar salad dressing mix
- 1 teaspoon canola oil
- 1/4 teaspoon seasoned salt
- 1/4 teaspoon pepper
Put the cauliflower, radishes and green pepper in a large bowl. Mix the remaining ingredients in a small bowl and pour over the cauliflower mixture. Toss to coat and place in the fridge to chill for 2-4 hours. Serve in 3/4 cup servings.
Sounds yummy, right? I can’t wait to try it!
