I've wanted to have my own garden for years. Once I went vegan, it seemed like a must-have. My husband built me an 8'x4' raised bed. Growing your own vegetables is definitely a learning experience. I can't wait to put what I learned into action next year. First of all I need to stake my tomato plants. There are only three of them, but they are huge and they spread out everywhere. I won't be growing carrots again, much cheaper to buy them (even the organic kind). I will definitely plant kale, lots of kale!
The weather here in NKY is pretty chilly. It's starting to frost in the morning and I still have a ton of green tomatoes growing in my garden. Jenn's grandma told her that I should pick them all, wrap them in tissue paper and put them in a cool, dark place. They will turn red. So, that's what I'm going to do.
Just look at all those tomatoes! Check out my crazy garden in the background!!!
The Sexy Vegan Cookbook for The Tomato Killer (pg. 200), which is basically a marinara or pizza sauce. The recipe calls for 2 pounds of roma tomatoes (will plant those next year) but I just use what I have and it always turns out great!
Off to make some Tomato Killer with some of my red tomatoes!
