Just get out and do it.

Welcome to my blog, Garden for Your Life! This site will be mostly about my garden, but you can build one just like it in your back yard too. It can be bigger or smaller, just get out and do it. You can do it for fun. Your can do it for your health. You can do it for fresh food in these troubled times. The point is to get out and do it for whatever reason that you need.

Over time I will cover topics like canning and preserving your harvest, soil and beds, bugs, what to plant and when, and much more.

I've been working on this garden on mine and improving on it for over five years now. I will continue doing that for many more. You can too, just get out and do it.

Put those veggies to use!

Well its winter and I'm hungry.  Time to add a few recipes to the blog.  Here's my favorite potato salad using mostly veggies from my garden.  I use a thin skin salad potato as I leave the skin on.  The skin on a russett potato skin is to thick.

Lets start with fresh washed and scrubbed thin skinned potatoes

Slice and cube up to 1/2 to 3/4" pieces.  Put into the pot.

Add water, bring to a boil and add a couple of eggs, or in my case a few quail eggs. 

After five minuets fish out the eggs and put in a bowl of ice water.  Sample a piece of potato and when still firm but easy to bite through remove from heat, drain, and put back into pot.

Now lets cut the veggies.  Grate the carrots.

Chopped onion and celery from the store.  Place in a bowl until the eggs are peeled, chopped and ready.

Put it them in the pot and add the mayo, chopped garlic, mustard, salt and pepper to taste.

 Now time to clean up with plenty of Soap and Water.
Here they are in action!
