Patchwork: It's late August and time to recall our Irish roots

Posted on August 19, 2010 |
By Barbara Ganley



As I pick ripe tomatoes for one of Kate’s gazpachos (see last week’s column) and slow roasting, I think of the story my father-in-law tells of sneaking to his mother’s tomato patch brandishing a salt shaker spirited from the dining table, then squirreling himself inside the bower of sweet-earth smelling vines to devour tomato after tomato, warm, salted, sublime. It’s tough to imagine a disease brought on the wind marring this image or wiping out full crops of tomatoes and potatoes.

Patchwork: Season of plenty: Time to pick, clean, blanch, freeze

Posted on August 12, 2010 |
By Kate Gridley



It’s here: the moment of August profusion in the garden, the one I dream about in my armchair during winter. There is so much ripening in my garden — indeed all over the county — it’s almost overwhelming. What to eat? What to can? What to freeze? Problems of abundance are nothing to complain about (in fact, there’s no time), but I relish the wealth of choices.

Patchwork: Three Gardens, Many Kitchens

Posted on August 5, 2010 |
By Barbara Ganley



Flowers occupy an uneasy space in many vegetable and herb gardens. Sure, we grow them for their good looks and scent, to relieve the eye from all that green. Mostly, though, we’re trying either to forestall the flowering event in vegetables and herbs — if what we harvest from a plant is leaf or stem rather than fruit or seed — or to usher the plant safely through the flowering stage and on to the point — the fruit. But what about eating and drinking the blossoms themselves? Or the seeds?

Sunflowers and popcorn we grow for seeds, sure.

Patchwork: We be jammin' berries

Posted on July 29, 2010 |
By Kate Gridley



Raspberries are in and I find myself wishing, just briefly, that I had a larger piece of land on which to garden. This happens three times a year: during asparagus season, the beginning of potato season, and now, when the berries are actually in.

What I really want is what my friend George had down in Connecticut: a berry house. Loosely constructed of rough-hewn timbers with a door on hinges, the walls and roof were cloaked with chicken wire stretched tight like a skin.

Patchwork: A short discussion on the cucumber

Posted on July 22, 2010 |
By Barbara Ganley



I planted my first seed when I was three. At least that’s how the family story goes. While “helping” my mother in the garden shortly before we left for the summer, I was given a packet of cucumber seeds to hold, and managed to sprinkle them, without anyone realizing, among my father’s tea roses. We returned in August to a scene from “Little Shop of Horrors”: vines everywhere, crawling over the helpful, thorny roses, along the railing of the back stoop, up the fence and to the tops of the towering arborvitae. My father hated cucumbers.

Ask Judy: Deep summer questions answered

Posted on July 15, 2010 |
By Judy Stevens



Last week’s most common question from our customers was: How does your garden survive in this heat? The short answer to that is, irrigation, of course. We were fortunate that our weeklong 90-degree-plus heat wave was sandwiched between two substantial rains, 2-1/16 inches on June 27 and 1-1/8inches on July 9. During that time we ran our overhead irrigation for a little over 6 hours, which was barely enough to keep the plants from wilting on those truly hot days.

Patchwork: Gardens are good for starting conversation

Posted on July 8, 2010 |
By Kate Gridley



Something amazing is happening because of my garden, and it has nothing to do with weeding, thinning, pruning, watering, or harvesting vegetables. Instead, conversations are sprouting. Ideas are germinating. Something is taking root and it’s about people.

It started slowly. First, it was the older couple I ran into downtown: “I hope you don’t mind, but we went into your garden last week. You’ve got a huge crop of peas. What did you use for the trellis? And what made you decide to plant your lettuces that way? ”

Ask Judy: What’s going on in the potato patch?

Posted on July 8, 2010 |
By Judy Stevens



We are banking on a good crop of potatoes this year. Last year’s attack of late blight cut our season short. In order to save the crop we mowed the tops off early (Aug. 13), and successfully harvested and stored a modest quantity of small, but disease-free tubers. This year we planted our seed potatoes (a bit later than most years) with our usual springtime optimism and, knock-on-wood, the crop is looking pretty good so far.
