Tip of the week:

Eat what you grow. I picked my Yellow French Beans, yummy! Boil in lightly salted water for 7-8 minutes. Then saute with a touch of olive oil, dash of salt & pepper, then some garlic.

Boil Yellow French Beans with tips cut off for 7-8 Minutes.

Drain and saute beans with olive oil, salt, pepper, and garlic for 1 minute.

Eat……SO GOOD!

Tip of the Week:

Ever wanted to grow a purple potato, fingerling potato, or red roasting potato? Let an “eye” grow on the potato (this will be the sprout), once the eye is about 1/2 an inch in lenth cut the potato in 2 inch squares(leave out for 2 days before planting to firm up cut sides to keep from rotting once planted) and plant the section with the eye facing up. Cover with 3-4 inches of soil. Your potato plant will grow a stock and once it blooms your potatoes are ready to be picked.

If you pick the outer leaves of the lettuce head instead of the whole head at once your lettuce will continue to produce and you get twice the life of your garden.
