Happy Earth Day – And Yes I have dirty fingernails… April 23, 2010

Filed under: Gardener's dirt — celebrationgoddess @ 1:23 am

Weeding, moving forget me nots, and preparing the vegetable area for planting. Oh what an exciting way to spend a chilly April evening.

The best way to garden is to put on a wide-brimmed straw hat
and some old clothes.  And with a hoe in one hand and a cold
drink in the other, tell somebody else where to dig.

My wife’s a water sign.  I’m an earth sign.
Together we make mud.

A weed is a plant that has mastered every survival skill
except for learning how to grow in rows.

Garlic Mustard Weed Pesto
1 1⁄2 cups fresh garlic mustard leaves
1 clove garlic
1⁄4 cup pine nuts or walnuts
3⁄4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
3⁄4 cup olive oil

In a food processor, finely chop the garlic mustard leaves, garlic and nuts.
Slowly mix in the cheese and olive oil. Pesto may be eaten on bread or crackers, on spaghetti or frozen in ice cube trays and stored for future use in sauces.

Laugh, learn and liven up your taste buds!
