Bitter Melon (Oriental cuisine)
I know it is not quite January yet, but we are over the Christmas flurry and getting our New Year's resolutions lined up, so why not put gardening in the mix? Did we move the date earlier? I remember discussion but I can't remember the outcome.
My wife has already mandated that I get back to growing more Oriental vegetables. We give most away but she and her mother enjoy making new friends and surprising old ones with the unique veggies.
By the way, edamame is NOT on the give away list. We can't grow enough to satisfy our own craving, so those are still on the reserved list.
Craftin_Mom got this started with this post on another blog.
"So, my green thumb is itching! I have 8 2-litre bottles of winter sow already in the back yard. (saved half of each seed pack in case of winter-sown failure, lol)
When is the first W.E.A.R meeting of 2012? Would the club be interested in helping Eakin Elementary with a student garden club project? I've already spoken to Dr. Bennett, she loves the idea."
