The frost is on the pumpkin...
It's time to clean up all the gardens and put them to bed so to speak for another season.
Our Kale was plentiful this year so with the remainder that I had in the garden I made pesto.
Here's and easy recipe:
saute one sweet onion
3 cloves of garlic
I use coconut oil to saute in ( 1 tablespoon)
Now add about 1 pound of fresh washed kale.
I use only the leaf and pull away the hard stems
Saute on med low heat till the leaves wilt..
At this time I transfer it to my food processor.
Pulse till it is all combined.
Kale pesto is so good in quiche. Follow your recipe for quiche and add about 1 cup of pesto.
Their are so many recipes for adding Kale pesto.
Kale is so good for you. A great source of antioxidants.
I freeze mine in ziplock bags to use over the winter months.
So getting back to the veg garden, we dig up, pull up all remaining vegs that have finished for the season,
now it's time to prepare the soil for the next season. Mr WWH pulls out the trusty roto tiller. Goes over the garden over and over again. Now the vegetable garden is put to bed....
Do you have summer plants still blooming? In some parts of the world I'm sure they bloom all year,
but usually by this time in Canada they have all finished. But my beautiful geraniums are still flourishing .So they stay in the garden till they wilt and die.
The patio furniture on upper and lower decks have been put away, the gazebo taken down. Plants in containers to compost bin.
All that remains are 2 rustic bistro chairs and a few house plants. The fallen leaves from the maples are a sure sign that winter is coming.
For some reason my fern has gone from a small hanging basket on our back deck to this glorious piece of art.
This specimen will be coming in this year.
Here she resides in the kitchen, Isn't she a beauty.
Have you put your gardens to bed..........
As always thanks for visiting!
