By Gabbie / February 17, 2016

Larry planted Utah Tall celery from seed last January 2015. He transplanted it into a GAB…probably over-planted, but it worked. We took our box of celery to our audition for Shark Tank in April, to farmers markets, expos and the fair all last year. We let people sample it. It was amazing, btw…”tastes just like…

By Gabbie / February 3, 2016

Color me happy! Harvesting a Cosmic Purple Carrot from Baker Creek Heirloom Seeds is a beautiful way to start a morning. I discovered an actual carrot had formed and not the just carrot thinnings that I’ve been doing for a couple of weeks. I could have let it get bigger, but I was too excited. My…

“Chicken Greenhouses”

By Gabbie / January 15, 2016

Here are a few pictures from last year in the greenhouse: Before we had our attached greenhouse, we just had shelves and shop lights in our laundry room.

By Gabbie / November 13, 2015

I saw a post on Pinterest a while back about veggies that you can regrow in your kitchen. I’ve tried to regrow carrots and the occasional avocado seed, but I got bored. I never had much luck, until…I tried celery. I really like regrowing celery. I make my own chicken broth and use carrots, celery…
