Enjoy the harvest!
We gathered on Oct. 15, 2012, to celebrate the harvest. Here are a few of the recipes we enjoyed:
2-3 lb. squash, chopped
1 medium onion
Cook in 6 cups of chicken stock.
Puree, season with nutmeg, salt and fresh pepper. Delicious! Enjoy!
Great to STOP a COLD coming on! This recipe comes from a media source and if you have 13 garlic cloves, give it a try!
2 cups chicken chicken broth
13 cloves garlic
Cook cloves in broth, puree and serve over your favorite toast topped with cheese.
Clean, leave skin on, and cut large potatoes into French Fry strips. Butter the base of your baking pan and place potato strips in the pan. Bake at 415 degrees for 15 minutes, then to 350 degrees, turn the potato strips over ½ way through baking time for a total of 50-60 minutes. Fantastic!
Local Gardens on Tour
Garlic planting takes place mid-October
Terry Wise is amazed at the length of the garlic stalk. Eight cloves from this elephant garlic were planted into her small 2’x10’ trellised lakeside garden.
Pat displays the type of bulb planter he likes to use as Terry holds the bulbs that will be planted and watered on this beautiful October day.
Bob Schick shows the vegetable boxes he built surrounded with flowers. Pat and Bob planted one square of garlic for Donna’s garden.
Awesome August gardens!
