Peas: The Cold Weather Legume

Weren't we just talking about summer vegetables? Don't freak out on me, we still have plenty of lovely weather left this season and there all the summer lovelies that need harvesting for weeks yet. But, it's always nice to get a little jump on the coming planting season and at least begin to think about what we'd like to see in our fall and winter gardens.

Kale is a cool-season green that can be started from seed at midseason for a fall harvest. It's delicious sautéed with garlic or served in a hearty soup.

Growing Plants in Greenhouses

Growing Plants in Greenhouses

For one, I live in Northern California where the temps can really get down there but face it, we're not Minnesota. Don't get me wrong, I have lost my share of plants due of lack of vacancies in my house for overwintering plants. I thought I'd give them gave them a shot at winter life in the greenhouse. Try not to be shocked, it's not the first time I've been wrong.

If you're going to have a caffeine addiction, getting the "wake up" into your blood stream by way of black tea just may be the most respectable way. According to the Order of Caffeine Addicts in America (OCAA), caffeine by way of tea is considered to be one of the classiest addictions among the whole substance-dependency lineup. You can look that up or you can just trust a group that bears the motto, "Proud to be; wired with tea."

"I wish I could have a vegetable garden, but we just don't have the space and everything is landscaped...sooo." I saw what looked like remorse in her eyes. Cynical me wasn't buying it. It's sad really, that people honestly think they can escape me that easily. It's so not gonna happen.

Love Artichokes? Thank the Italians

Love Artichokes? Thank the Italians

Personally, anything to do with Italy is utterly fascinating partly because I'm Italian and partly because I've seen "Under the Tuscan Sun" several times. It doesn't really matter because everyone knows no one does it better than Italy when it comes to food and cars. Man, what Italians do for cars, am I right?

Mix it Up and Grow Mesclun

Mix it Up and Grow Mesclun

It's just short of a felony to smother mesclun with anything rich or creamy. It's like pulling those tags off of pillows (just know you've been warned). My favorite dressings on these babies are the lighters ones. Raspberry or cranberry vinaigrette are tops on these flavorful salads - or try a lemon vinaigrette.

Pole Beans Versus Bush Beans

Am I starting them too early? Watering them too much? Too little? Not performing the right Voo-Doo ritual standing naked over them during a full moon? Because if that's what it takes, I assure you, I've done far more for much less.
