Welcome to our greenhouse!

This post is sponsored by Hayneedle who helped us build a greenhouse so we can grow vegetables in the Winter! All opinions are my own. 

Make gardening season last year round with a greenhouse!  Go green and grow your own! 

I have been so excited to show you what we’ve been doing on the land!  Garden season ended a few months ago so that’s why there there hasn’t  been as many beautiful vegetables to show, but not to worry – we’re still growing! In February! In 10 degree temperature! In the snow!  Thanks to a greenhouse we’re all set up to grow our hearts out 365 days a year now!

Make gardening season last year round with a greenhouse! Go green and grow your own!

When we had our rooftop garden going we had a small greenhouse that left us able to grow broccoli, bok choy and kale during the Winter months. Once we moved the garden Upstate I was already thinking about Winter growing during the first year.   Because we’re Upstate in the Catskill Mountains we had some things to seriously consider about the greenhouse.  1) It gets really cold.  2)  It gets really snowy.  3)  It gets really windy.    So I investigated greenhouses and figured the Palram HG56 Glory Greenhouse would be best for our situation.  We got it in the 12L x 8W ft size which is more than enough for what we need.     Due to the strong wind on our property, we installed the anchor kit to ensure the greenhouse wasn’t going anywhere. Inside the greenhouse we put down a ground cover and a few bags of drainage rocks on top.

How to Presprout Sugar Snap Peas

Easy step by step instructions on how to presprout Sugar Snap Peas.  By doing this you’ll be sure that the seeds won’t rot before they sprout under the soil resulting in a successful plant and pounds of sugar snap peas to pick!

Presprouting Sugar Snap Peas is a important step to growing big Sugar Snap Pea plants.  By doing this you’ll be sure that the seeds won’t rot before they sprout under the soil (due to temperature).  It also guarantees that you won’t be wasting your time planting some seeds that might not even sprout at all causing you to wait and fall back in the garden season schedule.

Easy step by step instructions on how to presprout Sugar Snap Peas. By doing this you’re promised that your seeds won’t rot before they sprout under the soil resulting in a successful plant and pounds of sugar snap peas to pick!

This is our quick and easy method for presprouting peas. We’ve been doing this for the past many years with a successful sugar snap pea harvest twice a year.  

Directions:
Step 1:  Drop your peas in some water to get them wet.

2016 Garden Totals

This is how many pounds of vegetables we grew in the 2016 garden!

Well 2016 is almost over and it’s been a good year for gardening and growing vegetables. This year we started a new adventure that included building a garden in Upstate New York and then growing our hearts out.  
Garden Reveal_12

Every year we keep a weight chart to track how many pounds of vegetables we grow.    Every harvest weekend we visit the garden, lug pounds of vegetables home in the car and into the apartment and then weigh each vegetable.    It’s a fun way to keep track of what vegetable grew good, or not so great and is a easy way to compare year to year.  

Last year’s totals were: 458 pounds
This year’s totals were (drum roll please): 1147 lb 6 oz

OMG.  That’s over half a ton of vegetables!

Moving Kale Indoors for a Rough Winter

How to move your kale indoors if you’re having a extra cold, rough Winter.  This will make sure your kale will survive for a  few extra months!

My prediction is that we might have a bad Winter this year.  Already in the garden Upstate we have nights in the 20’s and a few days of snow.   Plus I saw a white wooly bear caterpillar in the woods and Google told me they were signs of a deep Winter approaching.  The garden is pretty much done for the year minus the collards, Brussels Sprouts and kale.   The collards and Brussels Sprouts will call it quits when they’re ready to but I really wanted to save the kale.  Even though kale is pretty hearty and can withstand cold frost temperatures,  it gets very cold in the mountains so I decided to bring it inside our greenhouse to live for the next few months to make sure it survives.

How to move your kale indoors if you're having a extra cold, rough Winter. This will make sure your kale will survive for a extra few months!

Like my post on bringing pepper plants indoors for the Winter, this has similar instructions.  We dig up the plants carefully and then transplant to new pots.  We’ll water the plants weekly.    Even though it takes a little work to get them dug up, it’s worth it to have fresh vegetables throughout the Winter if you are in a cold climate.

This is our bed of kale.  It’s still looking good but the drop of temperatures caused it’s lower leaves to start to die. Time to save the kale!

How To Turn Pumpkins Orange

Easy tip on how to turn green pumpkins orange quickly indoors.  This works for small and large pumpkins.

Pumpkins can turn from green to orange pretty quickly and easily indoors.    There’s a number of reasons why you might want to bring your green pumpkin inside, the main ones being change of weather (frost hits the plant) or animals eating your pumpkins.  A few weeks ago after a dramatic drop in the temperature I had to pick many of our big pumpkins that were still green.    If you spend a few months growing a pumpkin then you know the heartbreak if you don’t get to see it turn orange.  Right now with the temperatures changing it’s the perfect time to bring your pumpkins indoors to turn orange.  After they turn orange you can continue to let them decorate your home,  or eventually cut them open and bake them for pumpkin puree. November and December are great times to decorate and bake with pumpkin!Easy tip on how to turn green pumpkins orange quickly indoors. This works for small and large pumpkins.

I turn pumpkins to their bright orange color the same way I turn  my tomatoes red.

The Surprise Pumpkins That Took Over Our Garden

This is the story of what happens when you accidentally track a pumpkin seed into the garden.  We plant pumpkins in the garden but they have specific beds to grow in.   Somehow a pumpkin seed from our compost bin got stuck to someone’s shoe and it got planted right in the middle of the garden, right in the onion bed.  It changed everything.

The Surprise Pumpkins That Took Over Our Garden

We noticed the pumpkin plant a few months ago.  We didn’t cut it down because we thought it would just stop growing.

In a few weeks it grew.  Much bigger.

How to Make Rainbow Glitter Pumpkins


How to Make Rainbow Glitter Pumpkins.  Follow these easy step by step instructions to add neon color to Halloween! 

Halloween is usually associated with orange, black and white but who says we can’t add neon rainbow colors to pumpkins and decorations?  With this fun craft you’ll soon have some beautiful rainbow glitter pumpkins to decorate your house with.  This is a easy craft to do with friends and children.

How to Make Rainbow Glitter Pumpkins. Follow these easy step by step instructions to add neon color to Halloween!

How to Make Rainbow Glitter Pumpkins. Follow these easy step by step instructions to add neon color to Halloween!

Supplies:
Munchkin pumpkins
Paper Towels  (I recommend Viva because they are strong)
Mod Podge
Neon Glitter

I recommend using a quality paper towel such as Viva Vantage because with glue and glitter it can get a little messy.  I used Viva paper towels and it was a quick 1 minute cleanup.     Viva Brand offers a choice of two types of everyday towels  (Viva and Viva Vantage) that work like cloth to stand up to any cleaning or craft job.  Viva Towels are super soft and smooth (they feel like a undershirt) so they are perfect for gentle craft applications such as putting glue on pumpkins.  Viva Vantage is great for scrubbing off grime in the kitchen, but they’re also great for gentle arts and crafts jobs too.  They’re a must have in my craft cabinet!

Tomato Picking Time, 2 pound tomatoes!

I hope everyone enjoyed Tomato Week on BFG! I posted recipes for Marinated Overnight Italian Diced Tomatoes, Creamy Roma Tomato Soup and 5 Minute Mexican Burrito Bowl.  Now it’s time to introduce you guys to the stars of the garden, the tomatoes!

We’re been transitioning to the new zone that we’re growing in this year to try to get a full load of tomatoes picked.   Usually it doesn’t frost until November in NYC but this weekend in Upstate New York it’s going to be in the low 30’s at night (thankfully it goes back up!).   The growing period for tomatoes is shorter now, but with a whole bed of tomato plants, we’re still picking pounds and pounds.  We have our usual cast of tomatoes: cherry, Roma and beef.  The cherry tomatoes are in full force and we’ve been picking them by the bucket.  The beef tomatoes showed up next and we’ve seen them in massive size (see pics below).  The Romas have started to arrive but there’s still quite a number of green ones.  It might be a battle of temperature vs tomato once October comes around to see how long we can hang on to the tomatoes.

Let’s just get straight to the beef tomatoes because they are huge!  I mentioned their size a few times but I wanted to show you guys just how massive they are this Summer.    Can you believe it?  Some of these tomatoes are close to 2 pounds!

Picking Corn In The Garden (And How To Grow!)

Fresh sweet corn – don’t you love it? I sure do.  Follow our journey from seed to picking over 20 ears of corn!

We tried growing corn up on the roof for a few years and it grew..sometimes. In 2012 we had the best results on the roof, but each year before and after was hit or miss.  Each year I talked Matthew into trying again, and each year we got small, if any, corn.  Eventually Matthew had to give me a intervention and say that corn was a waste on the roof, why don’t we grow something else?  After huffing and puffing and blowing the house down, I gave in, no more growing corn on the roof.

Step by step instructions on how to grow Sweet Corn. It's easy to grow!

So this year, with our first proper growing in the ground, non-rooftop garden, I was determined to grow corn! Lots of it! A entire bed of it!  We are still figuring out our growing schedule, but we decided to plant it in early June.  By July it was growing, but not that tall, and I was becoming nervous because the (legit) farmers around us had corn that was 5 feet tall.  I was worried we started too late.  I was worried the ground wasn’t ideal growing conditions for our corn. Then August came and the corn just took off!  It grew tall! It grew ears! It grew multiple ears on each stalk!  The corn couldn’t control itself, it kept growing and growing and growing!   Last, last weekend, we peeked at the corn and it was white, not the yellow/white combo it was supposed to be, so we gave it one more week.   This past weekend, it was ready.    We picked it. We ate it. I danced with it. 

Step by step instructions on how to grow Sweet Corn. It's easy to grow!

Technicals: We grow Xtra-Tender bicolor super sweet corn. I’m in Zone 5A. Corn seeds were planted directly in the soil June 6.  We harvested on September 3.   Seed packets say 73 days to maturity but ours took 89 days.

Easy Way to Freeze Green Beans Without Blanching

Easy step by step instructions on how to freeze green beans without blanching.  These green beans will last up to a year.

If your garden is anything like ours right now you might be picking pounds and pounds of green beans.  And if you’re anything like me, you really don’t want to turn on your stove to boil water to preserve your green beans during the Summer.  Last year I started to freeze our green beans this way and they stayed extra fresh, keeping their bright green color and crunch.   These frozen green beans last up to a year in the freezer making them a easy and economical way to save your green beans.

Easy step by step instructions on how to freeze green beans without blanching. These green beans will last up to a year.

Step 1: Take a step back and admire your green beans because god damn, you’re amazing, you just grew green beans!

Harvest This Weekend: Lots of Everything

Hope you all had a great weekend everyone! We spent the weekend up on the land, camping over night. On Friday we ventured to the local County Fair where I ate my yearly funnel cake and kissed all the goats I could find. On Saturday we woke up on the land to cows moo’ing at a nearby field and sunshine.   With the garden all built now (did you see my reveal last week?) we’re in full harvest mode, picking pounds and pounds of vegetables each week to travel back with to NYC.

So what’s growing?  Lots of everything.  We still have some of our spring veggies (kale, collards, cauliflower, etc).  Our sugar snap peas are finally winding down, but still picking a pound every week.  Then we have the beginning of the Summer veggies.  We picked our first tomatoes and peppers this week, with hope that the corn will be ready next week.  The weather Upstate is very different than growing in NYC due it’s colder temperatures so it feels weird to just only beginning to pick tomatoes.  With that said, the weather is great because it can grow “colder” veggies in the Summer. For example, we picked Brussels Sprouts this weekend – in August! Awesome!  Bonus awesome because this is the first time successfully growing Brussels Sprouts. Garden high 5s.  I’m so excited to eat them. 

We picked: Kale, Cauliflower, Cabbage, Cucumbers, Carrots, Green Peppers, Jalapeno Peppers, Green Beans, Sugar Snap Peas, Tomatillos, Tomatoes, Onions, Potatoes and Brussels Sprouts. Whew.

So let’s dive in….!

This Summer has been all about potatoes! We dug up our first plant a few weeks ago, digging up a additional plant every weekend.  When it’s time to dig up the potatoes it’s like Christmas morning – pure excitement!  Matthew and I gather around the potato plant, digging it up with a shovel and our hands calling out each potato we spot.  It’s one of my favorite garden activities!  We planted  Gold and Red potatoes. The Red potatoes came from “potatoes gone bad” in our cabinet in the Spring.  The Red potatoes were a bit of a happy experiment!

How to Remember To Eat Your Vegetables in the Fridge!

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Fujifilm Wonder Photo Shop. All opinions are 100% mine.

Do you forget what vegetables you have in the refrigerator?  With this simple photo project you’ll never let your produce go bad again!

One of the worst things is seeing food go to waste.    Do you sometimes buy beautiful greens at the grocery store, use them for 2 days, and then somehow they get stuffed into the crisper drawer in the fridge to be forgotten about until you notice a funky smell?  It happens.  And it’s terrible.

Even worse is when you grow those vegetables and they go bad.  All that hard work that went into planting the seeds, transplanting the plants, watering them for months, sprinkling powder in mid Summer under the hot spot because those damn caterpillars really need to get away from your broccoli plants.  All for nothing.  Because you forgot you had that beautiful head of broccoli and now it’s bad.    That is a case of garden guilt that you will never forget.  Truthful note, I have wasted a few vegetables and have then sat down on my kitchen floor and cried about it.  It gets rough.

This tip is easy.  You can go the simple route and keep a piece of paper on the fridge with all the vegetables that you need to eat written on it.  Or you can make it a little more pretty then that –  that’s where I introduce you to this photo project.

Supplies:
Vegetables

Mid Summer Update In the Garden, There’s Lots of Vegetables Growing!

Hold on to your sunhats because this is going to be a long, picture heavy post.   It takes lots of visuals to show what’s growing in the garden!

First, the break down.  What’s currently growing?
Corn, Tomatoes , Tomatillos, Peppers, Beans, Peas, Onions, Carrots, Radishes, Brussels Sprouts, Cabbage, Collards, Kale, Broccoli, Cauliflower, Potatoes, Pumpkins, Watermelon, Cucumbers, Berries, Grapes, Herbs

What has finished?
Bok Choy and Lettuce

Yup, only 2 plants are done so far, the rest are just starting which means we’re in for quite a haul of veggies for the next few months! 

Welcome to the garden everyone!
Green and Beautiful Upstate New York Garden

As you some of you know, this garden was a work of love this year.  I’m talking about the entire process.  Remember in the Winter when it was 20 degrees and we were Upstate trying to dig through the frozen ground? That’s love.    There was a point in the early Spring where we spoke to each other about the possibility of this completely failing.  What if we can only grow on rooftops?  I’m happy to report that we can grow in the ground!  It wasn’t a failure.   I had a moment of pure bliss while standing in the garden on Saturday morning,  looking around and seeing all green.  We built this, we grew this, we created this garden together. It’s all for the love of vegetables.

Remember just a few months ago this was what the garden looked like?
Green and Beautiful Upstate New York Garden

There’s been some ups and downs.  First there was building this massive garden.  It was hard work.  We don’t live Upstate, we live in NYC, so our time spent on the land consists of working, working and working.   To be honest, we still haven’t had much time to enjoy the land as when we drive up there every weekend, we’re on a mission to get our week’s worth of gardening in one day.  Yup, you read that right.  This garden gets taken care of one day a week.  That’s why the fence is so crazy, we knew we couldn’t prevent animals from attacking while we aren’t there so we decided to make it tough for them to get in. So far it’s working.    Because we only visit once a week,  we rely on good soil filled with nutrients to make sure the plants stay healthy and strong when we’re not there.   We got a pH test done in the Winter and the soil was lacking nutrients.  The soil was super acidic and had low mineral and organic values.     To give you a idea, Phosphorus was “very low”, Potassium was “low”, Calcium was “low” and Magnesium was on the low side of “Optimum”.  The soil pH value was 5.6.  Yuck. We pray to the weather gods that it rains once or twice a week to keep the plants watered, but if it doesn’t, then we water our hearts out when we visit once a week.   Thankfully because of the soil and nutrients that we added in,  the soil stays pretty wet, which means it can take care of itself when Mom and Dad aren’t there.

How to Keep Lettuce and Peas Fresh with Paper Towels


Use paper towels to keep your lettuce leaves and sugar snap peas fresh for weeks. The paper towels help remove moisture that can make your vegetables go bad.  

Right now we are picking pounds of lettuce and sugar snap peas.  Just this weekend we picked 10 pounds (!!) of lettuce and 5 pounds (!!) of sugar snap peas.  We usually don’t pick this much lettuce at once, but the heat hit and we know it’s going to turn bitter if we keep it in the garden so we’d rather pick it now.   Over the past few years I’ve spent lots of time experimenting trying to keep our vegetables fresh for as long as possible as there’s nothing sadder to a gardener then seeing their plants go to waste.  You might have remembered last summer’s tip on how to keep your lettuce fresh for a month with aluminum foil? Yup, works great!    And now I’m back with more fresh tips, this time for lettuce leaves and sugar snap peas.  All you need is your vegetables, paper towels and a produce bag.

July 9 Weekend Harvest – Sugar Snap Peas, Bok Choy, Lettuce, Kale, Collards!

Yup, it’s another harvest post.   Yup, we’re picking the same veggies as last week again.

This weekend we had off and on rain while visiting the land, with a heavy downpour happening in the late afternoon that followed us back to NYC. I can’t complain about getting wet in the rain though because water is definitely what the garden needs in this stage. 

Our refrigerator is filled with greens right now.  We have no idea how we’re going to eat that much lettuce.  Thankfully I figured out how to preserve lettuce better last year, and now I can freeze all our bok choy.

So let’s jump right in, sugar snap peas, bok choy, lettce, kale, collards.. I’m coming for you!

The sugar snap peas are in full growing mode right now, we’re picking them by the bucket. Last weekend we picked over 5 pounds!

July 2 Weekend Harvest – Sugar Snap Peas, Bok Choy, Lettuce, Kale, Collards!

Did you have a good weekend? The weather was beautiful on the land this weekend, 70 degrees, sunny, and the perfect amount of breeze.  It started out chilly enough in the morning that I had to wear a sweatshirt, to the afternoon being able to wear a t-shirt and then at dinner time I needed a sweatshirt again.   Saturday had it’s ups and downs for me.  I enjoyed gardening, picked lots of vegetables, painted some of the fence (can you guess what color?), had a cookout with some friends who stopped by.  The downs were that I started the morning hitting my head off the car door, and then I found a snake skin (terrified of snakes) where I was sitting, and then I found said snake that was trying to hang out with me (that was not happening) and then I fell near the stream grabbing on to some thorny bushes that need to be cleared on my fall down, cutting up my hand and leg pretty badly.  Thankfully we had a first aid kid and Matthew happily covered up my hand heavily in ointment, gauze and bandages.  

All pain was forgotten when I bit into the campfire made S’more that night. 
Saturday night campfire.

Yum, Yum.

But on to the veggies because that’s what this post is about.
Keeping with the theme of all the greens we picked last week,  you’ll see a repeat of many characters – bok choy, lettuce, collards, etc.   We’ll be picking these for the next few weeks and I’ll continue to keep googling “What to do with lettuce” because there’s lots of it!

June 25 Weekend Harvest – Bok Choy, Lettuce, Kale and Collards!

It’s that time again – time to harvest vegetables from the garden!

And it’s time to show you the reveal of the garden, well it’s not really a reveal because it’s not 100% done (still has to be painted and cleaned up) but here it is, in all it’s vegetable glory!  I should have a person in the garden for size comparison, because it’s big.  It’s really big.  There’s endless amounts of vegetables.   I love it.
20160625_184249

Transitioning from growing on the roof to growing on actual land has been a learning process full of hard work. We started the process of building the garden during the Winter to have it ready to go for Spring. We started planting to a new schedule that was scary due to possible surprise frost dates (still scary). We battled (still are) water issues. We’re learning. We’re working really hard. We filled the last garden bed this weekend. And it’s all so very exciting because we’re finally picking vegetables. This garden thing (on land!) is actually working.  

So now starts weekly harvest posts.  We go up to the land once a week to water, clean up, plant and pick.   And then we lug all those beautiful vegetables back to NYC.   We haven’t really had a chance to enjoy the land yet as we’re working constantly there, but soon enough we’ll be able to take a breather and relax alongside the plants.  

What are we picking now?  I’m glad you asked.  There’s lots of Spring greens growing right now at rapid speeds and they’re all ready to be picked.  Does anyone need any bok choy? Seriously.  Maybe I went a little crazy planting 94 bok choy plants.

We have a entire bed of bok choy plants, we started picking fuller plants 3 weeks ago, and they are just growing and growing and growing. And I’m picking, picking, picking.

Here Comes the Plant Car…. Berries Being Planted!

Beep, Beep,  the plant car is here! Jump on it if you can find a spot.  And be careful for the rose bushes!

20160610_184826

While the vegetables are growing in the garden, this past weekend we headed to Lowe’s to pretty much buy all their fruit bushes and Rhododendron plants that they had.   We had 5 big garden carts filled with berries, trees and flowers going down the checkout aisle, while people marveled on how we were going to fit it into our tiny little car.  Our small neon yellow Honda Fit has carried quite a lot since we got it in the Fall, people are always amazed by how much it can carry!    I’m not sure if we could have fit any more plants in it,  branches were literally reaching out and tickling our noses in the front seat.

Do you think we got enough plants?
I don't know, do you think we got enough plants? Even better we fit them all in to our tiny car. 🌲🍒🍓
