Regeneration

Posted by Hallee on Jun 26, 2012 in Gardening, Hallee's Galley, kitchen & cooking tips

Did you know that green onions regenerate?

If you have the white parts left over from using green onions, put them in water in a jar.

Refresh the water every day. These pictures were all just taken one day apart. Within 6 days, you’ll be able to use the green tops again.

The Garden: Week 10

Posted by Hallee on May 16, 2012 in Gardening, Hallee's Galley

I cannot believe that 9 weeks have passed since I did a garden update!

I have been so busy with book releases and writing that gardening got put off to just now. Since we’re on vacation next week, I needed to just stop everything this week and get the garden planted.

We have a plot at our church. This is the first time we’ve done that, and I’m LOVING the size of my plot!

The Garden: Week 1

Posted by Hallee on Mar 16, 2012 in Gardening, Hallee's Galley

Can you believe that it’s gardening time again? This winter went by SO FAST.

That may have a lot to do with the fact that we didn’t have much of a winter in Kentucky. Our heaviest snow came on March 3rd, and the day after that it was 80 degrees outside.

Consequently, I was able to till the section of garden I planted — barefoot! I love tilling dirt barefoot. There are few things as energizing as the feel of fresh-tilled dirt on bare feet.

The Tomato

Posted by Hallee on Jan 17, 2012 in Gardening, Hallee's Galley

In December, I had a vine-ripe tomato sitting on my window sill. When I picked it up, the outside felt very bumpy, which was kind of strange. I know this picture is blurry, but maybe you can see the little off-colored bumps along the skin.

Oven Roasted Tomato Sauce with Garlic & Basil

Posted by Hallee on Oct 19, 2011 in Gardening, Hallee's Galley, Preserving, sauces & spreads

My garden is STILL producing tomatoes. I had about 15 pounds the other day, and wanted to do something different with them, so I tried oven roasted tomato sauce.

Seasonal Perspective

Posted by Hallee on Sep 15, 2011 in Gardening, Hallee's Galley

Now, on September 15th, I’m worn out. If I never see another mason jar or freezer bag again, it would suit me just fine. I have been slicing, dicing, cooking, peeling, preserving, drying, and freezing until I just don’t want to do it any more. Don’t get me wrong – God has provided and I am thankful. As much as I love the art of food preservation, I’m just ready for this season to be over. I’ve kept up with school, laundry, and scrubbing. The house is clean, but the picking up and general housekeeping maintenance has been ignored and the day-to-day clutter is about to take over, the classroom is chaos, and my kitchen may never recover. I still have suitcases on the floor of my bedroom from our trip to Ft. Wayne, Indiana, Labor Day Weekend.

Arachnophobia

Posted by Hallee on Aug 25, 2011 in Gardening, Life

I haven’t always been afraid of spiders. My mother is and always has been, but they never really scared me. At least, until my senior year of high school, when my friend, Robbie, took me to see the movie Arachnophobia. That movie scared me.
