Sow Seeds In September For Stir-Fry In November


  1. Okay, November stir fry... what are you growing there? *knows I missed a meeting somewhere*

    I did get the pitas done and you can read about it here. I had a blast making them and the kids want to help in the next go around. The older kids -- that is -- because everyone likes to get involved in these things.

    *poofs back over to my blog to fix somethings! grrrr.*

    *returns giggling at my word verification box* You have to name something or someone "shzoom"! These word verifications are too funny!

  2. Is that curly mustard? Mmmm.

  3. Hi Liselotte,
    I know exactly what you mean about never getting around to doing things. My garlic that should have been planted in October is sitting on a table in the living room. (But it is making progress. It used to be a lot further from the back door!)

    Hi Heather,
    Yay! Another person having fun with pitas!

    What am I growing here? Okay, I am almost positive this is what it is. (Of course I took detailed notes. But apparently I failed to actually write them down--yet again.)

    From front left to back right:
    1. Chinese Kale--Small Leaf Kailann
    2. Michihli Cabbage
    3. Chinese Cabbage--Loose Leaf
    4. Welcome Choy Sum

    All of these can be stir-fried, or you can use the tender, young leaves in salads. They didn't take long to sprout and grow, and they are all cold hardy. This photo was taken after several hard frosts and temperatures in the 20s(F). During the coldest nights they were simply covered with an old bedsheet.

    I bought all of the seeds from a wonderful mail order company here in Missouri called Baker Creek Heirloom Seeds. I highly recommend them. All heirlooms, low prices, and an incredible variety of seeds.

    Hi Jamie,
    No curly mustard in that plot, but I have grown it before. Yep. Mmmmm. : )


December 2015 update: Hi! For some reason I can't figure out, Blogger hasn't been letting me leave comments on my own blog (!) for the last several months, so I've been unable to respond to your comments and questions. My apologies for any inconvenience! You're always welcome to email me: farmgirlfare AT gmail DOT com.

Hi! Thanks for visiting Farmgirl Fare and taking the time to write. While I'm not always able to reply to every comment, I receive and enjoy reading them all.

Your feedback is greatly appreciated, and I especially love hearing about your experiences with my recipes. Comments on older posts are always welcome!

Please note that I moderate comments, so if I'm away from the computer it may be a while before yours appears.

I try my best to answer all questions, though sometimes it takes me a few days. And sometimes, I'm sorry to say, they fall through the cracks, and for that I sincerely apologize.

I look forward to hearing from you and hope you enjoy your e-visits to our farm!
