Kale, Breads, Ladder & Greens


Cut a little more Kale.  Next year I need to do a better job of growing Kale for the winter!


Remember the Grow Light Kit I got for my birthday back in November?  On the left is the first lettuce I planted (Black Seeded Simpson and Prizehead).  On the right is spinach.  The middle one is a Mesclun Mix planted later.  I have one more empty tray yet to plant!


Here is five loaves of zucchini bread made of zucchini from my garden to give away for Christmas.


Not from my garden but time to bake bread again!  "Wonderful Gardener" does not eat home made bread so where does it go!!! Hmmmm. Can't blame Coco for this one!!!


My friend's husband made her some ladders to hang things on.  "Wonderful Gardener" is a man of many talents and I wanted one!  Of course "Wonderful Gardener" tries to keep "Wonderful Wife" happy so he made this one!  My Mom's embroidered and crocheted treasures are hanging on it.

I have some zucchini in the freezer that I had packaged up in the hopes of making zucchini bread this winter - which I have never done before. Did you make the zucchini bread from frozen zucchini or was the bread made this summer and frozen? And those greens look amazing - Looks like you may be picking greens for a garden fresh salad by New Years!

Hi Margaret, The zucchini bread was made from fresh but I do have some in the freezer to try. I don't know if I should squeeze the water out of it when I make it from the freezer or leave it in. Do you know? Nancy

The zucchini bread is fabulous! I love the ladder that your hubby made. It is perfect. xo Diana

He doesn't eat homemade bread? I couldn't imagine someone not liking that. But then my husband won't eat most fruit (basically he will eat applesauce and raisins and that is it) and I can't imagine not liking things like peaches and strawberries either.

Hi Nancy! The greens are coming along nicely! They will be nice to harvest for a salad soon. And what a nice thing to make and give as gifts, some homemade zucchini bread! My son doesn't like my homemade bread either. Can't understand why someone won't eat homemade bread! The crocheted treasures are displayed beautifully on the ladder made by Bob! Have a wonderful holiday season! Blessings from Bama!

Hi NanaDiana, Thanks! I hope they enjoyed the zucchini bread. I like being able to display things that were my Mom's so will enjoy the ladder. Nancy

Hi Daphne, Hard to imagine people not liking bread or fruit but more for us then! Nancy

Cozy Thyme Cottage said...

Hi Felecia, Thanks! Yep! Hard to imagine people not liking bread when I love it. My husband never thought he liked zucchini bread either until I started making my friend's recipe. Now he really likes it! Merry christmas to you too! Nancy

Margaret said...

My guess on whether or not to squeeze the moisture out of the zucchini would be to leave it in. My thought is that any moisture in the zucchini would have been there before it was frozen & would have been incorporated into the recipe.

Thanks Margaret. I am inclined to think that way too. Hope it turns out well. Nancy

Looking good Nancy! I think a grow light would be a good solution for me; we just don't have enough natural light from the windows to start seeds indoors. They all end up spindly looking. And I'm so ready to get started planting! LOL

Hi Leigh, Not sure how much I will actually produce with the grow light but it is fun and satisfies my itch to grow something! Give it a try! Nancy

lynn said...

your gifts of bread are darling, nancy! looks like the grow light works well, too. mr.w may not like bread, but, he is a great woodworker! love the ladder! !

Hi lynn, Thanks! I have been wanting a ladder like my friends! More bread for me to eat if he doesn't eat it! LOL Nancy
