carrots 
c arrots
are one of the most important vegetables in our year-round garden. Not only are they an easy-to-grow, low-maintenance crop, but they’re also cold tolerant and may be stored right in the soil where they’re grown for a winter-long harvest of sweet, crisp roots. In fact, as temperatures take a nosedive, in late fall, their flavor improves as the starches in the roots convert to sugar. In terms of yield per square foot, carrots are also tops. Because they can be grown so close together and take up so little space, carrots supply a big harvest from a small plot. But perhaps the most important reason to grow carrots is their taste. The flavor of just-dug garden carrots is sensational: crunchy, sweet, and absolutely delicious. They even smell good — fresh and earthy. Carrots are one of the few vegetables our kids will eat without my nagging; they even run up to the garden to dig a few for their lunchboxes and after-school snacks. It probably helps that, thanks to increasing demand, heirloom carrots in shades of purple, white, yellow, red, and, of course, orange have been reintroduced into seed catalogs. Digging for carrots is also fun! Everyone loves to harvest from our “rainbow” bed, because you never know what color you’ll end up with. (I’m partial to purple.) Whatever types of carrots you choose to grow, with a basic cold frame or even just a thick layer of shredded leaves and a row cover, you’ll be able to enjoy them virtually 12 months of the year.

Getting to Know the Bush Fruits
well behaved; they will stay 4 to 5 feet tall and wide for many years. They take up relatively little space, and you need only one bush to get some fruit. Black currants and jostaberries are likely to spread, but usually not enough to be troublesome. Although currants and gooseberries are often found growing and bearing on abandoned farms where they’re choked with grass and receive no care, they produce much better when they get a little attention. The elderberry is extremely hardy, tolerates warmer climates than currants and gooseberries, grows in almost any soil that is somewhat moist, and requires almost no care. It has attractive flowers, berries, and yellow to red-orange leaves in fall. So what’s wrong with it? Not much, though it’s perhaps a bit too easy to grow, so it spreads rapidly, both by seed and by root suckers. Fortunately, we have plenty of room, and by keeping the grass mowed all around the bushes, we keep them under control.

The Ribes: Currants, Gooseberries, and Jostaberries
Currants and gooseberries belong to the genus Ribes. The genus name is often used as a common name for this group of diverse fruits. Red currants (Ribes rubrum) are just that, although also they come in white and pink. Fruits are small, about the size of a small blueberry, and ripen in mid- to late summer, as do other currants. Depending on cultivar, berries can be sweet or sour; the pink are the sweetest. Use the sour cultivars in cooking, jams, and juices; the sweeter cultivars are delicious fresh. Black currants (R. nigrum) have a musky flavor and fragrance and are used more for cooking rather than eating fresh. Black currant juice is popular in Europe, partly because the berries provide up to five times the amount of vitamin C found in oranges.

Currants are a good source of vitamin C, and they make tasty juices and jellies.

we don’t Pick cUrrantS and gooseberries when they first turn color, because both improve in flavor when they stay on the bush awhile until fully ripe. Watch them closely, though, because birds like them, too. Unlike most other berries (including elderberries), which last for only a few days, these store well in the refrigerator up to 2 weeks.

great for this purpose; most garden-supply stores and catalogs sell them. Gooseberries resemble small kiwifruits in texture and flavor. Different cultivars vary widely in size, color, and sweetness. When fully ripe, the berries are soft, and many are delicious right off the bush. Some people prefer to pick when slightly underripe for tart sauce and pies. Gooseberries 10/7/11 will continue to ripen off the bush if you pick them 3:42 PM before they’re fully flavored. Expect 5 to 10 pounds per mature bush. The red currant is a bit tart, and thus is best when cooked, although as a boy I liked to eat them fresh off the bush. Red currants are high in pectin (until they become overripe), which makes them ideal for jelly making. Use a mixture of ripe and half-ripe red currants for jelly recipes with no added pectin; ripe ones are good for jam. Use slightly overripe ones in juice and wine. The same is true for black currants; the dead-ripe ones are best for juice. Red currant jelly has long been a gourmet treat accompanying meat dishes as well as desserts. Black currant jelly and jam are just as tasty. I’ll never forget

With all currants, fruits are produced on flexible stems called strigs. look for cultivars with fruits produced in large clusters; they make for easiest picking.

The red, white, and pink currants ripen fairly uniformly, so wait until about 3 weeks after they begin to color to harvest. Pick a whole strig (stem), being careful not to damage the fruit spurs. Or use the tines of a fork to strip currants from the stem. Black currants don’t ripen uniformly along a single strig, so pick berries individually as they’re ready. Avoid picking wet currants, or spread them on a towel to dry before storing, as the fruits mold easily. Expect to harvest 3 to 10 pounds of currants per bush. Thorny cultivars of gooseberries can be a bit tricky to pick. Try wearing a leather glove on one hand to hold up the branches while you pick with the other hand. Long-sleeved “rose gloves” are

one effective way to strip currants from their strigs is to use the tines of a fork.

Others to try amaranth names can be colloquial and confusing, but some excellent, widely available varieties include ‘all red’, with beautiful, tender, mild red leaves; ‘kerala red’, tangy enough to add flavor to curries; and ‘merah’, with brilliant, yellow-trimmed burgundy leaves and a nutty flavor.

Every square foot of garden space comes with a bonus 6 cubic feet or more of usable growing space above it. The actual ground space taken up by any one vine may be reduced to just a couple of square inches. Training your plants upward lets you squeeze a lot more life into a small patch of earth than vines trailing all over the ground would ever allow, so you

can grow more of a favorite crop or experiment with something new and different. Another benefit of vertical gardening is that some plants naturally take a liking to one another, and the best way to take advantage of your extra space is to fill it — if only temporarily — with plants that grow well together. Quick-growing plants, such as lettuce, spinach, and radishes, make excellent filler beneath vining canopies or quick intermediary

You can always buy organic produce at the grocery store and shop the local farmers market, but most of these crops are easily grown in a backyard or even on a deck, so there’s no reason not to supplement your shopping with some homegrown produce that you know for a fact is completely free of residue.

what happened between those stages, it hadn’t registered. so, i started looking. i will be able to describe what i saw in botanical terms only because i consulted an expert who hybridizes magnolias and i visited several relevant websites that gave names to what i was seeing. i can’t underestimate the importance of both activities, because having someone to corroborate what you are seeing helps you see more. Here are highlights of a magnolia flower maturation process that takes all summer to unfold.

Predator satiation is another. this term relates to the “mast years,” or boom years, we witness when trees, particularly oaks, produce a significant abundance of fruit. in such years, trees produce more fruit than their predators can eat, thereby assuring that some of the seeds escape predation. bust years of seed production, which typically follow a mast year, further ensure seed survival by keeping predator populations low.

The Ever-Blooming Flower Garden
LEE SCHNELLER

Roses don’t have to be difficult to grow, and they don’t have to monopolize a gardener’s time. Gorgeous, bountiful roses can bring color and aroma to any garden — the secret lies in choosing appropriate plants for every climate and every garden condition. Schneider guides readers through the best plant options for trellises, hedges, containers, large or small flower beds, and many other garden settings. Gardeners in colder climates will find ample information on hardy shrub and heritage roses, and every rose lover will benefit from the growing and pruning tips and advice on dealing with pests and diseases.

We visited many family gardens while writing this book, and came across wonderful ideas. Here are just a few to play with as you begin your own: Kid-sized beds and tools Play areas: a sandbox, playhouse, or hopscotch pathway

Involve Your Kids in the Garden Design
Talk to kids who love their gardens, and you will often hear about things you might never have considered part of a garden before, like catapults, painting easels, sand boxes, Frisbee targets, or gopher-viewing chambers. Kids are more likely to feel ownership of the garden, and to enjoy spending time there, if they can see themselves reflected in the planning and design. Of course, the best way to achieve this is to involve them every step of the way. Whether you are installing a new garden or revamping an existing one, consider going to other gardens together and making notes of what you and your kids like best. You can then involve them in brainstorming and mapping appealing garden elements. It should come as no surprise that some of the best kid-friendly garden design ideas have come from kids themselves. Lee, a spirited 10-year-old, suggested to his mom and dad that they build a ship’s crow’s nest in their garden. And so, right in the center of their suburban backyard, they have a tall perch from which Lee can survey the neighborhood. Some less elaborate but equally whimsical kids’ ideas include child-sized nests made from woven branches, moats or miniature rivers for floating leaf boats, and outdoor sitting areas for favorite dolls.

Living structures: a bean teepee, sunflower house, or plant tunnel

And, because these are by necessity quick pickles, you must use a generous hand with the dill and garlic to them whole, so the flavor will penetrate better.

The lactic acid is also a preservative. is fuzzy looking and should be removed promptly. It is most likely to appear on the walls of the crock and can be removed with a paper towel. If your equipment is cleaned properly before use, and you take care to keep the vegetables submerged in the brine and to keep air excluded from the crock or jar, yeast and molds shouldn’t present much of a problem. If growth does happen, don’t freak out. once you’ve removed any colonies of yeast or mold by skimming off, taste your pickle. As long as the pickle tastes good and isn’t slimy in texture, it is safe to eat. You will know when a ferment has gone bad. trust yourself.

Storage

Yeasts and Molds

It is a rare batch of fermented pickles that exists without a little yeast action. Mold is less common, but still happens on occasion. Yeast is indicated by a whitish foam that forms on the surface of the brine. It should be skimmed off daily – that’s why you check – to prevent softening the pickles or developing off flavors. Mold

Fermentation will be complete in 3 days to 4 weeks. After 4 weeks, all fermented pickles should be stored in the refrigerator. The uSDA recommends canning fully fermented pickles for long-term storage, but this destroys the crisp texture of the pickle. If fermentation went well, you can refrigerate the pickles in the original brine. Alternatively, make up fresh brine, add fresh herbs and spices, and put the pickles in the fresh brine before refrigerating.
