Video: How to Harvest Soybeans (Edamame)

1 comment

Soybeans, or edamame, are widely known for their health benefits. They are also pretty tasty and often found on the menu at Japanese restaurants. When you're harvesting soybeans, look toward the bottom of the plant first. The lower pods tend to ripen faster than the pods at the top. Ripe soybeans will appear large and plump in their shells.

Hot Hot Hot! Get Ready to Preserve the Chile Harvest

About midsummer, peppers mature and begin to ripen, and chiles become more pungent. Right now in my Maryland Zone 7 garden, my chiles are coming on strong and we are eating them morning, noon and night.

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.

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.
