THE BROWNISH BUTTON FALL COLLECTION
We're excited to show off Abby Peterson's Brownish Button for Fall! Her American Folk Art collection features whimsical boxes, pumpkins, plates and of course her signature big-footed crows. Abby's pieces always sell quickly; don't miss this fall's offerings. Now at the Lazy K.
Those craftsmen in Pennsylvania are at it again. The family-run team takes pride in creating one-of-a kind handcrafted pieces of Americana Art from raw hard gourd shells. These beautiful pieces are painted and carved into shapes and figures reminiscent of pastoral country styles which are hard to resist. They are perfect companions to galvanized metals, vintage linens and weathered wood furniture. Our collection in the Flower Shop plays to the whimsical heart of Halloween, but these kind gourd faces and personalities can light your way home through beautiful autumn evenings.
Spinach is a wonderfully versatile vegetable, popular worldwide, with nearly every cuisine featuring spinach somewhere in its repertoire. The Italians are particularly partial to spinach and have hundreds of dishes using this vegetable. The words "a la Florentine" mean the dish contains spinach.
Spinach requires rich, fast draining, soil. Give plants plenty of water and one feeding to encourage lush, full foliage.
Popeye's addiction to this "power-packed" vegetable comes from the fact that it's a rich source of iron as well as vitamin A and C.
Kohlrabi looks like a cross between a cabbage and a turnip and is often classified as a root vegetable. Even though it grows above the ground. It is a member of the brassica family, but unlike cabbages, it is the bulbous stalk that is edible rather than the flowering heads.
There are two varieties of kohlrabi. One is purple and the other is pale green. They both have the same mild and fresh tasting flavor, not dissimilar to water chestnuts. Kohlrabi is neither as peppery as a turnip nor as distinctive as cabbage, but easy to see why people think it is a little of both. It can be served as an alternative to carrots and turnips, nicely steamed and whipped.
Although kohlrabi is not a very popular vegetable in North America, it is commonly eaten in Europe, as well as in China, India, and other parts of Asia. The bulbs are often sliced and eaten in salads and the greens are cooked in mustard oil with garlic and chilies.
When growing, kohlrabi likes full sun, ample water and fertilize at planting and then a few times after. Grow as you would cabbage.
Kohlrabi is rich in potassium and vitamin C.
Many gardeners are saddened when the weather begins cooling, because they believe the colder weather will hail the end of color in their garden. A yard filled with beautiful flowers in summer and fall suddenly seems impossible to duplicate when the weather is cold and the sun is hiding. But there are two plants that are becoming increasingly popular and cheering up winter gardens.
Let us introduce you to "flowering cabbage" and "ornamental kale." These ornamental plants look much the same as their cousins bred for the table, but have been bred specifically for their showy colors and ruffled foliage. They come in a variety of colors, ranging from white to pinks, purples, or reds. (The ornamentals are edible, but not bred for taste.)
More important, these plants can survive winter temperatures as low as 5 degrees (and with some protection, they can survive even lower temperatures). While a sudden severe cold can be deadly to seedlings or new transplants, these plants will do just fine if given time to acclimate. What is more interesting, a light to moderate frost will even help intensify their brilliant colors. They actually prefer the cold and don't do at all well in the summer months.
Both flowering cabbage and ornamental kale prefer to be planted in the full sun but will tolerate some shade (although their colors might not be as intense). As with all other annuals, they do best when planted in rich soil. So, for best results, amend the soil before planting. We also recommend feeding them every two weeks to keep them looking their best. In addition, they do very well in pots, making them great for adding a bit of color on patios and around entrances.
- 1 cup oregano
- 1 cup lightly toasted pine nuts
- 1/2 cup garlic confit
- Olive oil for drizzling
To make confit: Put peeled garlic cloves in oil and place over a medium flame on the stove for five minutes, stirring gently.
Mix all of the ingredients in a food processor and slowly drizzle olive oil until it reaches a consistency you like.
