How to Get the Most Juice from a Lemon

You probably already know how much I love Meyer lemons, but if not, let me be very clear:  I LOVE THEM.  I would bathe in lemon juice if it were socially acceptable and didn’t dry my skin out.  So, whenever I make anything that calls for lemon juice and I have fresh lemons on hand, I microwave my lemons first.

Heating the lemon releases almost twice the juice {you can put it in a pot of boiling water for 30 seconds if you prefer that to the microwave}, which means you need less lemons for each recipe.  Less lemons means less money.  {I am really good at math.}

So next time life hands you lemons, heat them, and make even more lemonade.

Wahoooo!

Square Foot Gardening – How Does Companion Planting Work?

square foot gardening mavis

Yesterday it rained all.day.long.

Although it was nice to lounge around in my pajamas all day long and watch movies, around 5 pm yesterday I actually got bored {can you believe it?} and so I got dressed and went outside to do a little gardening.

I don’t know about you, but when it’s raining outside, I like to wear my husband’s coats and shoes and I have no idea why.  I’m not sure if it’s because I don’t want to get my stuff wet {Ha!} or if his stuff just seems cozier. After 18 year of marriage I still haven’t figured that one out yet. I’m pretty sure it’s something crazy people with too many things on their mind do. I say this only because I don’t think my husband would walk outside with my shoes and coat on. And if he did, well…

swiss chard seeds

Okay, back to the garden. As I was putting the square foot garden together last week, I was thinking how cool it was going to be to have 32 squares with different vegetables growing in them.

square foot garden

But then as I was planting seeds yesterday, I started to wonder how on earth I’m going to be able to grow 32 different varieties of fruits and vegetable in an 8′ by 4′ raised garden bed.

Is it really possible?

Is it a bad use of space to plant only 6 beets or 12 radishes in such a small area? Will this one raised garden bed really grow a significant amount of food? Will it grow MORE food per square foot than if I would have planted an entire bed with just one vegetable? I need answers people!

square foot gardening

I am beginning to think it might be a trick question, but I’m still pretty excited about it. I’m just not sure how the whole companion planting aspect is going to play into it though.

So far 9 of the 32 square have been planted. Sugar snap peas, carrots, beets, Walla Walla onions, strawberries, lettuce, Swiss chard, radishes and celery all have their own little 12″x12″ plot.

What do YOU think?

Have YOU ever tried square foot gardening? Do you think it’s a bad idea to try and grow 32 different plants in this small of a space? Do you think everything will thrive or will it die, die, die because I’m trying to do too much in such a small amount of space?

Mavis wants to know.

Mondays with Mavis – How to Feed Your Family for $100 a Month

mondays with mavis

You know what’s really weird? After looking at this weeks pictures I tried to remember what I fed my family this past week. I remember serving pasta, salmon, buffalo, smoothies, oatmeal, sandwiches, soup, and lot’s and lot’s of eggs.

When you think about it, it’s pretty amazing what little a family needs to purchase each week if you do a lot of cooking from scratch.

But sometimes the pictures of what I purchased, still don’t come across as enough food to feed a family of four for one week. Probably  because I’m not reminding people of the food we have in or freezer, pantry or the food we purchased in bulk.  So you know what I’m going to do? This week I think I’ll photograph all the meals I prepare for my family and then show you the pictures next monday.

What do you think? Is that weird? Or would it be helpful? Let me know in the comments below and I will follow your lead.

Alright, here is what I purchased this past week:

milk in glass bottle

QFC & Fred Meyer- $6.08

As you can see, the debate about local milk is still a hot one in our house. The Girl and I can not convince the boys that the stuff in the glass bottles is fresher and better for them.

case of clif kind mojo bars

Vitacost – $2.41

I had some Vitacost credit and then shopped through ebates to score a 6% rebate on my purchase.

If you’ve never made a purchase from Vitacost before you can get a $10 credit just for signing up, and right now Ebates is offering a 6% rebate on any Vitacost purchase. Pretty cool if you ask me. Plus, if you are new to Ebates, you can also score a $10 gift card for signing up to their website as well.

fresh produce

Harbor Greens Produce Market – $7.88

Every time I buy a sack of potatoes I tell myself it will be the last time. But we keep eating them so I have to buy more!

dried cranberries

Swagbucks – FREE

I traded in some Swagbucks for an Amazon gift card and used it for a 4 pound box of the best dried cranberries on the planet!

food waste

Mr. Produce Guy – FREE

Thanks to Mr. Produce Guy, last week we ate big salads and had plenty of apples to pack in the kids lunches this past week. There is no doubt about it, free produce rocks!

artisan bread

The Bellingham Farmers Market $10

$10. Shut.The.Front.Door.

It was the biggest loaf of artisan bread we have ever purchased and and boy was it good! Sometimes you just have to be frivolous and buy the good stuff. Even if it’s expensive.

How did you do this past week? Did you hear the rumor that Albertsons Double Coupons might be going away? What do think about it? Will your grocery budget survive without them?

~Mavis

Total Spent This Week $26.37
Total Spent This Year $596.33
Total Spent This Year on Garden Seeds/Supplies $781.98 {I bought a Meyer Lemon Tree, Rhubarb crowns, 6 Fruit Trees , 15 yards of soil}, Walla Walla Onions and 90 pounds of seed potatoes.

Plus, supplies to make my own potting soil.

 Happy Monday! What are your plans for today?

I think I’m going to start a flat of lettuce seeds and try and get out to the garden and do a little weeding in the raspberry patch before I move a few raspberry canes around. Maybe I’ll even be able to get Lucy to help. We shall see.

Week 15 of 52 – Mavis’ Backyard Garden Plot

raised garden beds

Rain, rain, go away, come again another day. Like in the middle of a heat wave in August. Yeah, that would be nice. You know what the soggy, wet bark reminds me of right now?

Yep, I’d take neon orange bark over this crap any day of the week.

I decided all the sports gnomes needed to be together. So they guarding the perennial garden from squirrels and chipmunks.

magnum glass greenhouse

Thanks to the rain, the greenhouse is nice and muggy. Lately I’ve been keeping the doors open about a good 8 inches. My tomatoes and basil is in there and as soon as the weather warms uspI want to be able to plant them outside. So far the plants are all looking strong.

Poor Lucy the puggle dog was having a bad hair day and didn’t want to look at the camera.

The peas have begun to pop through the soil and the fava beans that I planted in front of the chicken fence are about 2 inches high now. I haven’t grown fava beans in a long time {since the kids were 2 & 3 if I remember correctly} So I’m pretty excited.

cascadia raspberry canes

The raspberry patch.cascadia raspberry canes plants

A view of the raspberries from the kitchen window. Hopefully I’ll have time this week to transplant the canes that are growing in the paths to the bare spots in rows 1 &2.

costco brown pots herb garden

The container herb garden. All that’s left to plant is the thyme. We already have oregano, sage, rosemary and parsley planted in this area. We also have mint planted in an oak barrel next to the garden gate as well.

If you look closely you can see 2 rhubarb plants. I’ll have to transfer those to the perennial garden before they get much bigger.

gnome rain gauge

Did I mention rain is in the forecast for 4 of the next 5 days?

Yep. It ain’t easy being green.

Peace Out Girl Scouts, try and stay dry.

How to Grow Celery {Start to Finish}

celery seeds

I started some celery seeds under grow lights a while back, and yesterday I transplanted the young plants out  to the garden. As long as you keep your celery plants watered, it’s about as low maintenance as it gets. Celery seems to thrive up here in the Northwest because of our cool spring and fall temperatures and it especially LOVES growing in my shady backyard.

Brief description: Celery is a versatile little veggie.  You can eat the stalks, leaves, roots and seeds.

Where to Plant  Celery:  Celery does best in a cooler climates out of direct sunlight.  It is a great choice for shadier areas of your yard {though, it still needs some light}.  You can grow it in garden beds, raised beds, or containers.

what do celery seeds look like

Planting Seeds:  Press seeds into the surface of the dirt.  Thin to 1 seedling per pot {or every 6″} when they are 1″ tall.  When plants are about 6″ tall, harden them off before planting.

celery

Growing Tips:  Celery likes fertile well-watered areas and does not tolerate the heat very well.  In the south, it can be grown all winter.  In the far north, it thrives in the spring.  In most other areas, it really thrives as a fall crop.

How to Harvest:  Cut the stalks off just above the soil line.  You can also harvest single stalks, if that is all your recipe calls for.

regional-planting-guides

Are you ready to start your garden but you’re not sure when you should plant your seeds or set out your transplants? Head on over HERE and you’ll be taken to a handy dandy chart that is broken down into what vegetables should be planted {or transplanted} each month in your area.

Anyone can do this. Dirt + Seeds+ Water = Food!

~Mavis

Storage Tip:  To store a fall crop of celery, pull plant up root and all, and store in a box with moist sand or dirt completely surrounding the roots.  They should keep several months this way.

chicken noodle soup crock pot recipes{Crock Pot Chicken Noodle Soup}

Besides eating celery stalks dipped in peanut butter {Yum!} my favorite way to enjoy it is in homemade chicken noodle soup. Mmm Mmm Good!

Yesterday The Girl and I were in Mt. Vernon for the Skagit Valley Tulip Festival. The Bellingham Farmers Market wasn’t to far away so we decided to stop by and check it out.

Mary from Hammerhead Coffee Roasters left a message on facebook page letting me know she was excited about opening day at the market  so The Girl and I set out to find her. And we did! Hi Mary! It was nice to meet you in person.

As soon as we took this picture people started swarming Mary’s booth so we went and checked out some of the other vendors while Mary served up some freshly brewed coffee.

Check out this succulent wreath. What a beauty! I need to make one of these! I have a wire wreath in the garage so maybe I’ll try and whip one up with some leftover succulants from the Sedum and Succulent Living Wall Planter I made last week.

These succulents were so tempting. I wanted to snatch them all up.

Looking for a mushroom kit? Cascadiamushrooms sells them for $15 at the market or $18+ shipping online. You can also find mushroom kits on Amazon if you’re not local.

Skagit Valley Tulip Festival – Roozengaarde

Roozengaarde

Yesterday The Girl and I drove up to the Skagit Valley Tulip Festival in Mt. Vernon, Washington. The festival has been going on for 30 years and it attracts over 1 million visitors from all around the world.

As I was standing in front of the giant windmill at Roozengaarde {the best stop on the tour if you ask me} I was like, Man. I totally should have brought my gnome dress! Oh well, maybe next year.

skagit valley tulip festival roozengaarde

In 1955 Dutch emigrants William and Helen Roozen in 1955 started their farm with only 5 acres of land.

RoozenGaarde {where all these pictures were taken} was founded in 1985 to serve as the Washington Bulb Company’s retail shop and display garden.

Now the Roozen family farms nearly 2,000 acres!

You could spend hours driving down the back roads and driving to all the farms on the map, but The Girl and I got a late start yesterday and we were on a bit of a tight schedule, so we happily paid the $5 admission fee and toured the Roozengaarde instead. And it was worth every penny too.

It took me a little while to notice all the beds below the trees were mounded.

Do you see it? I wish I would have known to do this back when I was planting my daffodil beds last fall.

Skagit Valley Tulip Festival - Roozengaarde

There was also a formal garden with gravel paths and smaller flower beds to walk through as well. You can always pick out the tourists {people who don’t live in Washington state} because they use umbrellas when it’s barely sprinkling. skagit valley tulip festival roozengaarde

If this was my garden, I wouldn’t pick a single flower. I’d  just drag a chair outside and sip tea all day while reading  Jane Austin books. Occasionally I’d send the Handsome Husband a text when I needed a refill of tea or a scone or something.

Who needs cable when you have a flower full of beautiful flowers?

Sunday Brunch Recipes – Blueberry Buckle

  • Like on Facebook

  • Print Friendly and PDF
  • Pin It

I found this recipe for blueberry buckle on my friend Jane’s blog a couple of years ago and have been making it ever since.  I make this blueberry buckle recipe with fresh blueberries in the summertime and frozen berries in the winter.

I like using an 8×8 inch cake pan when I bake this blueberry buckle because I want a big, fat, satisfying slice.  I’m sure there are a ton of calories in a coffee cake buckle with only 9 servings, but who cares, sometimes you just have  to live a little.

Got blueberries, raspberries or apples?  Go make this.  It’s totally delicious!

Ingredients {slightly adapted from Jane}

1/2 cup butter, plus more for pan
2 cups all-purpose flour, plus more for pan
1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
3/4 cup sugar
1 egg
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1/2 cup milk
3 cups blueberries {fresh or frozen} *If you use frozen your batter should stay white.

1 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp. salt
1/3 cup packed light-brown sugar
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
4 tbsp. butter, room temperature


Directions

Preheat over to 350 degrees. Line pan with parchment paper and set aside.

In a medium bowl, sift together flour, baking powder and salt. Set aside. In the bowl of an electric mixer, cream butter and sugar on medium speed until light and fluffy. Reduce mixer speed to low, and add egg and vanilla. When combined, alternate adding reserved flour mixture and milk to the mixer, beginning and ending with the flour mixture. Remove from mixer.  Gently fold in blueberries. Pour batter into prepared pan. To make streusel topping, mix cinnamon, salt, brown sugar and flour together; cut in butter using a pastry blender or fork until fine crumbs are formed. Using hands, squeeze together most of the mixture to form large clumps. Sprinkle topping generously over batter.

Bake for about 60 minutes or until a cake tester comes out clean. Let cool 10 minutes before removing sides of pan. Let cool 15 minutes before serving.

If you are looking for the perfect pan square pan for cakes or brownies, Amazon currently has the Fat Daddio’s Anodized-Aluminum 8-Inch Square Cake Pan in stock and ready to ship, plus the reviews are great!
