Happy Fall, all!
I know most of us have wrapped up our summer gardens, and perhaps put away our gardening tools for the winter hibernation… But I’m here to tell you that you can still plant and enjoy a fall garden! Some plants really love the cool weather and actually taste sweeter because of it.
I think it’s finally fall, everyone! For the longest time, I wanted to live somewhere where it’s hot all season but in the last few years, I have found such joy in the changing seasons. Summer is full of fun and is super busy for us, while fall boasts crisp air and coziness, winter is a time for relaxation and planning, and then spring is just super exciting anticipating the season ahead.
We love fresh tomatoes, so what better way to use them up then make fresh tomato sauce? No better way. And when I say we love tomatoes, we do, we really love them. Especially homegrown tomatoes, you just can’t beat the size and flavour compared to store-bought.
Have an abundance of herbs? Learn the best 7 ways to preserve them. Freeze, dry, flavour… let’s get into how to preserve herbs!
A herb garden is essential for the farmer, the country gardener, the balcony gardener, and even the urban gardener. One of the things I look forward to the most when the growing season begins is being able to go outside and pick just the perfect amount of herbs that I need. I hate having to buy from the grocery store in those stupid plastic packs and then it just sits in your fridge and goes rotten because you never use it all! #whatawaste That’s the beauty of growing them right outside your door – take only what you need and it won’t go to waste!
