Come along with me as I journal about my latest cooking and gardening adventures. Discover what grows in my zone five garden, and see what new recipes I try from my cookbook collection each week.

As I share recipes and information from my kitchen, I invite readers to comment and share ideas along with me in this blog. I am looking to increase followers to my blog, so that I may learn more about cooking and gardening.

Since moving to Midland, Michigan, I have been reading and researching many cooking journals, cookbooks and collected recipes from the past thirty years. Organizing pictures of gardens I enjoy has also been a joy for me, as I continue to learn about garden design and horticulture.

sage, ginger and parsley

even in November, my herb garden is filled with wonderful herbs.  my sage plants this year have been producing wonderful quantities for my use all summer.  i am planning on using this fresh sage for thanksgiving as well.
the heart shaped leaves from this asarum or wild ginger plant are just beautiful surrounded by the falling leaves.  the ginger has been growing nicely as a ground cover throughout my shaded garden bed.  the plant is said to have a rhizome that smells and tastes similar to the ginger root, but i have not tried it.

my annual parsley plant is still growing well into November as well, producing large stalks of parsley that i should be able to use right until thanksgiving. fresh parsley and sage for a side of dressing sounds wonderful to me.
