You may have to vary this depending on your own kitchen equipment, but I actually just tossed everything in a big metal mixing bowl and used my "magic wand" -- it's a Ninja handheld blender -- to blend it all together. You could combine in a blender or food processor. Process until all large chunks are gone. Simple as that
I have a few other garden vegetables that I'd like to use in a recipe soon. I've been digging up more carrots, and I have a few potatoes that I'd like to combine this week to make some sort of vegetable soup. I also have mass quantities of tarragon that I might add to the soup, and a second bunch of parsley that is growing.
My green beans have been coming in strong. I think they are finally on their last leg, but several plants are still producing. The radishes are taking a little longer than advertised, but I imagine they'll be ready by mid-October.
I also have lots more gourds coming in -- more everyday! Most of them are teeny tiny ones -- which will make great fall decor. I have one larger pumpkin that I harvested today, as the vine died -- it's still a very small pumpkin, but not as miniature as the others.
My perennial garden is looking better this fall, too. The mums I planted a couple of years ago are growing bigger and they are already blooming, along with the sedum. I had lots of clean up to do in the perennial garden, which I need to remember to do more frequently. Just getting rid of some of the dead stalks as they go really makes it look prettier! I decided I should plant some of my marigolds in here next year, as they also remain blooming in the fall.
Hi there! My name is Dana and I live in West Michigan with my husband, Tom and our dog Happy Gilmore. I created this space as a place to share the things I learn along this journey I call life.
