Homegrown cabbage is sweeter
Looking at the date today I see it’s time for cabbage recipes before I start with our fruitful apples. We all know that cabbage is available all year in grocery stores but fresh from the garden the heads are crisp, soft green in color and have a sweeter taste. Why cabbage now when we’ve picked cabbage in early summer? There is early and late cabbage and late cabbage has been ready to harvest for a couple of weeks or more. One of our friends has a big garden and we were given a head of cabbage that weighed about five pounds, along with other veggies from their garden. Lucky me! Needless to say we are eating cabbage prepared one way or another. I have recipes with cabbage and apples in the ingredients so, it’s cabbage/apple recipes today starting with…

Hoping for more summer
I can’t believe, well I guess I can, that two weeks from tomorrow will be the first day of Autumn, astronomically speaking.  It seems that everyone I talk to says, “Where has the summer gone?”  Let’s hope that September brings us sunny days and warmer weather and not an early frost.

An abundance of garden veggies
I was thinking about recipes using veggies but my brain was on hold! I checked back in my “steno book” and found that I hadn’t used recipes for this member of the cabbage family since 2002.  Some people call them baby cabbages…in other words, Brussels sprouts. They do look like little cabbages but they grow differently. They cling to a large stalk topped with a crown of foliage. I tried growing them years ago but it takes patience, which I don’t have much of, before they are ready to pick…like 90 days.  If I remember right, I yanked them out because I didn’t think they were going to produce after growing for a month and a half. I never planted them again. End of story!
