What is wrong with me that i have to have some sort of experiment going nearly all the time?!!!
Here’s the one i started today: Start and plant date: 6 APR 19
Four containers which previously held Portabella mushrooms
Two containers are filled with soil from my garden. One is unamended, the other is mixed with 2 teaspoons of Thorvin Kelp from Iceland which i keep on hand for my cows. Each amount is approximately 2 quarts of soil.
Two containers are filled with ‘Magic Dirt’ organic potting soil. One is unamended, the other is mixed with 2 teaspoons of Thorvin Kelp from Iceland. Each amount is approximately 2 quarts of soil.
The purpose is to discover if the Magic Dirt is better than my soil (probably!) and if how it compares to each amended with Thorvin Kelp.
This is my go to version of my own making. However, be encouraged to try new and different flavors and ingredients. Having an abundance of squash and cauliflower leaves/stalks, i decided to substitute. To my pleasant surprise, substituting squash for carrots and cauliflower stalks and leaves for celery and onion is a hit and will be come a regular recipe for us.
1 lb ground beef
1 lb beef sausage
1 cup onions chopped
1 cup finely chopped carrots
1 cup finely chopped celery
2 tablespoons Liquid Aminos or
1 teaspoon black pepper
Thoroughly mix all ingredients, then place about ¼ to ½ cup of mix in a log shape on a prepared egg roll shell. Roll up properly and tightly, then fry in ½ inch of olive oil heated to a tick less than medium. For best browning do not overcrowd them. I cook 6 at a time in 12 inch skillet. Once lightly browned, turn over. Keep an eye on these, they need to be cooked through, but careful not to burn the shells. Drain on paper towels.
An example of a departure from my standard recipe is using this gorgeous Squash Zucchino Rampicante. I’ve grown a barrel of these and they are huge, so gotta start getting creative.
