Garden Things To Do In Winter

We’ve had two snowstorms about a week apart and another couple of inches fell right after the second storm. I need to get away from winter!

Testing Seeds Indoors

Even with our long winters here I need to ensure that I have a bumper crop of vegetables each year. Our growing season isn’t quite as long as it is in more southern climes.

Green beans – stew

Cooking from your heart

One of the key ingredients to prepare this dish is to have a well-stocked pantry, having canned vegetables, and a variety of canned soups on hand will make your life easy and make you look like rock star with your family when dinnertime comes!

My mother always used fresh cut green beans because she does not approve of using canned green beans, but I had to tailor the recipe to accommodate the cooking time I have, without losing or compromising the delicious flavor.
