Garden on St. Patrick’s Day – New Episode!

| April 2, 2013 | Reply

I thought I’d have some fun in the garden on St. Patrick’s Day! We had a June-gloomy kind of day, so I put on bright green, harvested some green cauliflower, made green kale dip (see recipe below), and tore out a rotted green fence. Join in the fun and share with friends! If you enjoy or find this video helpful, please let me know! Also, let me know how I can make “Late Bloomer” better!

Garden veggie dip

Green cauliflower with green kale dip

Green Kale Dip

1 Cup fresh plain goat yogurt (can substitute plain cow yogurt)

1 Tbl. organic mayonaise

2-3 Tbl. fresh squeezed orange juice (may substitute lemon)

1 Large leaf of green kale (I grow Winter Bor)

Fresh dill and chives

Chop the kale finely. Blend the yogurt, mayonaise, orange juice and kale together for one minute or until it looks blended.

Sprinkle over finely chopped dill and chives. Prepare raw vegetables for dipping. Serve and enjoy!

(If you are not a huge kale fan, this is a great way to get the nutritious benefit of kale without really tasting it, ha!)

Some days in the garden are all about fun. Not hard work! St. Patrick’s Day was one of those days. It wasn’t easy to be cheery with the June gloom we have so often here, but I did my best! Thanks for stopping by and watching. And please get my new FREE e-book, “10 Steps to a Great, First Garden!” – Kaye
