The Green Beet: Late Harvest

The Green Beet: Late Harvest

Unavoidable circumstances led a late-season neglect of most of my garden. Imagine my surprise that, upon my return home in the fall, many vegetables which should have been long past their harvest date where actually primed and ready to pick. While the kohlrabi was lost to slugs and the second […]

School Lunches

Statistics show that one out of every three children is overweight or obese in this country.  The Kenai Peninsula Borough is not exempt from this trend, and we, as a family, community, district, state, and nation need to do all we can to halt this trend and raise our children […]

The Green Beet: Dip Netting Frenzy

The Green Beet: Dip Netting Frenzy

The red runs on the Kenai and Kasilof Rivers are in full swing, and the Soldotna/Kenai area is flooded with Alaska visitors ready to net their share of fish for the 2010 season. I’ve dip netted for years, sometimes coming home with my limit, other times with only a fraction […]

The Green Beet: Chickweed Spring Rolls

The Green Beet: Chickweed Spring Rolls

I’ve been enjoying some of my first harvest this week – radishes straight out of the ground, cucumbers out of a friend’s much-coveted greenhouse. This is also a great time to enjoy the wild plants popping up in your yards and along trails. This week my family feasted several times on […]

The Green Beet: Broccoli

The Green Beet: Broccoli

This is the perfect week for starting broccoli indoors to have the yummy crucifer ready by mid-summer. Four weeks before planting is a great time table to have the starts hardened and ready to plant by June 1st – possibly a week earlier if the evening temperatures cooperate. This plant […]

The Green Beet: Friends with Green Thumbs

The Green Beet: Friends with Green Thumbs

It’s the time of year I love: Gardening time. I’ve managed to start now three different gardens, four if you count the plot of carrots I attempted to grow in my neighbor’s garden in Seward when I was home for college. I don’t typically count that one, because I didn’t […]

The Green Beet: Dining with Baby

The Green Beet: Dining with Baby

By Jen Ransom The other day I found myself with a bushel of bruised apples, still edible but not so appeasing to the sight. Not one to throw out food, I decided that I would make some baby-wise applesauce (sans sugar and cinnamon). Six cored and peeled apples, about three-quarters […]
