Our maple tree has officially been stripped naked of it’s leaves and more water has fallen from the sky than I ever thought was possible. We are definitely in the middle of fall! Cabbage has been making it’s way into nearly every meal along with all of it’s seasonal companions. At this time of year this is my go to hash… the sweetness from the apples compliments the bitterness of the cabbage and it’s all cooked up with tender potatoes and sautéed onions. The perfect fall dish that can be eaten for any meal!
If you plant one thing in your garden, I think it should be garlic. A cool season crop that is easy to grow, low maintenance and immensely rewarding. Once you grow your own garlic, you’ll have a hard time going back to the store bought (often bleached and shipped from who knows where) varieties. There’s some kind of magic when it comes to growing garlic… you put a single clove in the ground and 9 months later you have a fully formed head with the most juicy and delicious cloves you’ve ever eaten!
