Fall is in the air and squash and pumpkin recipes of all kinds come to mind.With tastebuds craving something warm and comforting, here are two of our favourite pumpkin bread recipes for the perfect fall breakfast.
If you ask most gardeners why they started, I have a hunch the majority of them would say that they were influenced by a gardener that shared his or her passion for growing. My own love of gardening was sparked by my mother’s beautiful gardens, and by her obvious pleasure and joy when she tended her flowers. She didn’t talk a lot about her methods, but I learned through a sort of magical osmosis.
I swear I could live very happily on steak and caesar salad. I would eat it every day if I could. Even for Thanksgiving, but my family wouldn’t accept it. It’s my go-to meal, whether I’m celebrating a happy event, having friends over for a casual evening, or just getting home from a business trip. It’s simple, but rich and satisfying. I love it!
A ripe pear is a sweet pear. A little known fact about the pear is that it is one of the few fruits that does not ripen on the tree. The pear is harvested when it is mature, but not yet ripe, and, if left at room temperature, it slowly reaches a sweet and succulent maturity as it ripens from the inside out.
What’s worse than fruit flies? Well, mosquitoes are definitely worse but I made some citronella candles and all-natural bug spray to keep them away. Oh, and yellow jackets are also a pain but I made a recycled bottle wasp trap for those. Now it’s time to stick it to those icky fruit flies with another all natural and simple solution.
More isn’t better when you’re talking about timing the harvest. Quite the opposite - early is best for some vegetables that will be tender and still tasty when picked early. Here’s a guide to picking sooner than later from the National Gardening Association:
For the first time in our lives, we hired someone to help us in our garden. We’ve always prided ourselves on being able to plant, build, grow and fix everything on our own. But for the past few months (or longer) life has taken us away from the garden, and our Saturdays of weeding and pruning were eclipsed by weddings, babysitting, guests, and business trips. Not to mention exhaustion. Life. To tell you the truth, I was about to give up on a good part of the garden. I was questioning my ability to maintain it, and I was questioning my sanity, and that made me really sad.
