Original Tip No. 3 Berries and wild plants

3. Plants with fruit and edible berries can be made into recipes. Same with vegetable and herb plants. You can plant an entire victory garden, or make a container garden. Garbage cans for planting tomatoes are popular. Gourds and pumpkins do well in sunny soil and come up more than one year. There is a lot of satisfaction in using gourds, pinecones and holly from your own yard to decorate. Pinecones or gourds in a nice basket make a very nice gift for someone, and pumpkins are great in recipes, especially pumpkin soup, on a cold autumn day. As I look out this year in 2013, I note my wild blackberries have grown rampant. I replanted tomatoes in pots along with green peppers yesterday. We'll see. So far, our rabbits and wildlife have not eaten everything. On a happy note, our baby rabbits seem to have survived, and will live to grow and eat my garden another day. The misery of my Master Gardener Grandpa's planting experience was that the mulberry trees were at the mercy of the local birds. He scarecely got any berries. Same was true of our wild cherry trees; way too high up to harvest, and not a cherry picker in sight. Of course, the crows would have fought us for them, I'm sure. Good sources for more: Any books or articles by the alte Euell Gibbons. Any books or articles by Michael Pollan. Barbara Kingsolver, Animal, Vegetable, Miracle Various articles, shows, clips by Martha Stewart and The Victory Garden on PBS. Logees catalog Recipes.com Your local garden shop for tips. Joanna Fluke's Hannah Swensen bake shop mysteries; she always has great recipes for pies and cobblers. For gourds and pumpkins, try any of The Moosewood cookbooks.
