Working on the Garden…
Yes, it’s only February but I have gotten the garden bug, as usual. So.. John and I are on the road this week and I don’t have a kitchen. But, I do have pencils, paper and a camera! So I’m getting creative. New house and a new garden!
While the new house doesn’t have much of a backyard. There is a great community garden that is just a few blocks away. I signed up with the city for a great little plot that is 15′ x 20′. I can put in raised beds and grow year round, I just have to be a good (garden) neighbor, so they will let me stay again next year.
So here are my ideas for a neat little garden.
Each square is 4′ x 4′.
Can’t post without at least one recipe idea! Planning on at least five different peppers for the garden! Green peppers, jalapeño peppers, purple jalapeño peppers, Tia peppers, and ghost peppers.
Three Pepper Soup
4 cups homemade chicken stock
3 jalapeño peppers, thinly sliced
1 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
2 eggs, whisked
Bring to a simmer chicken stock, and all three peppers. My stock has a little salt in it already but add a bit for balance if yours doesn’t. Once the stock is simmering drizzle in your eggs. This is great if you have a cold, it clears everything out!
