5 (Visual) Reasons To Grow a Fall Garden

A recent harvest.

Chinese cabbage ... we make kim chee using a recipe from the Los Angeles Times. LA has the largest population of Koreans outside of Korea.

Escarole is so beautiful, and slightly bitter. Eat it shredded in salads, or lightly steamed with Parmesan and finely chopped garlic, Italian style.

Haven't harvested these yet, but aren't they gorgeous?? Our friend Laurie picked us up a flat of plants in late August from a local nursery. These Brussels sprouts have thrived in the cool fall, with only light frosts.

I hardly ever go a day without eating several cups of lettuce ... I love it!!!!
