It’s that time of year! If you have a garden, or are a frequenter of your local farmers market, you are sure to be wondering, “What the heck am I going to do with all this stuff!” Here are some of my favourite recipes, and resources, to tackle your vegetable growing and hoarding habit.
- Cucumbers, Peppers, Basil, and Beets – oh my! These are some my favourite all time recipes that I hope you can enjoy: Roasted Habanero Salsa, Beet Pickles, Perfect Pesto, Refrigerator Pickles.
- Got Fruit? If you have an abundance of apples, raspberries, cherries, and any other fruit (and you can’t keep up with picking) try this volunteer picking service. The fruit that is picked is shared with the volunteer, owner, and a charitable organization in the city.
- Grow a Row! Did you know that the good people in our RRC Pavement and Grounds Team are growing a garden full of potatoes and carrots and are donating the bounty to Winnipeg Harvest? You can too by dropping of your fruit and veggies at Winnipeg Harvest, Mondays – Sundays.
- Need more? Here are a bushel of great resources for you to peruse….. Food Manitoba, Prairie Fruit Growers Association, Dig In Manitoba, Peak of the Market.
Have fun and eat your fruit and veggies!
