I was working on a list of places where you can buy a Pilea plant and then my computer crashed, so I had to start all over. The list is still really small and I'm still working on it, but I've already put it up online on my website (nininoes.com), so take a look if you want to buy a Pilea plant. And if anyone has any tips on where to buy a Pilea online, please let me know! (Link to my site is in my profile) #pilea#pileapeperomioides

🌿 Sunday harvest ~ over ten pounds of greens 🌱
In a typical week, we have no problem eating and storing all of this. As I merrily sorted and filled bags and strategtically stuffed the refrigerator full to the brim like usual, I took a step back to admire my work, paused, and uttered "Oh, crap". Until that moment, I wasn't thinking about Thanksgiving, and all the other atypical foods we'd be filling our fridge (and bellies) with from Wednesday through Sunday! So I made it a weird little challenge to see how much of this we could consume/use in a matter of three days. Between green smoothies for breakfast, a redonkulously comical amount of greens with every lunch and dinner since, and the half gallon of kraut we whipped up last night, I'm happy to report that this is all nearly gone and the fridge is ready to be stuffed with leftovers instead! 🙆♀️
As a produce manager, Aaron's work is at its busiest this time of year. He always has to work both Thanksgiving morning and Friday after, meaning we can't really travel to be with family. But that doesn't stop us from whipping up an extravagant, multi-course, vegetarian-heaven of a Thanksgiving meal here together at home, just the two of us! 🍷 Sometimes it makes me a bit sad and envious to think of all the big gatherings going on out there, but instead I choose to be grateful and appreciate all that we have, including an adundace of healthy food and a very strong friendship. We always have a ton of fun spending the day in the kitchen together, cooking and dancing and eating and laughing and drinking. Plus, more leftovers for us! 😉
I hope you all enjoy your families, celebrations, and traditions out there - no matter how big, small, traditional, or unconventional! 🍻
Heading out but couldn't show up empty handed so, naturally, a combo of giant Hydrangeas and giant Swiss Chard will have to do (hopefully there's no weird looks when I show up with this haha). A few months ago I was complaining that my Chard didn't really take off over the Winter - Enter Spring. Now it's huge, no complaints here ✌🏼️🌿

What do you plan to do with your pumpkins when you’re finished decorating with them?
We eat most of ours and any that aren’t great for eating usually end up in our compost pile.
We grow a variety of different pumpkins every year because @dailyflorish has a bit of an obsession with them, but what’s great is that the most attractive pumpkins are usually the best for eats.
Most of these pumpkins and winter squash can be stored in a cool/dry place like a garage for months until you’re ready to eat them, or just roast them now and freeze the flesh for later.
A few of my favorites pumpkin recipes this year have been; pumpkin hummus, Thai pumpkin soup, and pumpkin curry.

There isn't a more forbidden fruit growing in my garden than the White Currants...... I have many young shrubs that I have made from cuttings but only one older plant that is bearing fruit, so every little translucent gem is precious. How I have been waiting so very patiently for these plump pearls to ripen slowly one by one, finally these pretties are the first pickings of the season. Sweet, plump, juicy and no where near as tart as my Red Currants, they are delightful eaten straight from the plant.
