Winter Wonderland

With 2 feet of snow and drifts 3-4 feet high, I do not think that I will be doing any more gardening this year!

I look forward to gardening with you in 2010!

Gifts from the Garden

This year's fall garden, I planted some turnips for the first time. Although turnips can grow quite large, they are best when they are about 2 to 3 inches wide. All of my family loves turnips. We think that they are best sliced with salt and pepper. You can cook turnips like potatoes, but they lose some of their flavor.

I gave some of the turnips to Grandpa. The turnip greens that I harvested went to Grammy. Turnips are one vegetable that she did not have in her fall garden this year. We will also be giving salsa made from the garden this year to Grandpa. You can go here for some other gift ideas.

Quotations from the Garden

"I love to think of nature as an unlimited broadcasting station through which God speaks to us every hour, if we will only tune in."
