And the time has come for my Swiss Chard...Too be honest, I did not cook that much with it this summer despite a lot of it growing in my garden. It is such a low maintenance vegetable and absolutely no problem growing it. But I am just not that crazy about its taste. So, next season I will only plant a little of it so I can still cook with it from time to time but in majority of its place I will try a different vegetable. .

Misty mornings over frost-bitten zinnias... Sounds better than pea soup and powdery mildew! Those zinnias have got to go (and so does the basil) but I just haven’t been able to pull the trigger. I must have been waiting for this view, which right now feels more spectacular than midsummer. Sometime in the last week my brain accepted the fact that it’s November. I mean, I’m not ready to put the Christmas tree up yet, but I’ve accepted that this year is quickly coming to a close. I feel like it’s been the best one yet, and a big reason is because I got to spend more time here in this garden with you!.

My 'Spring Potato Salad' is up on the blog and ready to go. (Linked in my bio). This potato salad is different than the traditional mayo-based one we like to eat here in the South. Yes, it has mayo but it's not *too* much. More importantly, it's loaded with baby arugula, English peas, fresh dill, ripe avocado, and the all-star ingredient, fresh tarragon.
.
Honestly, that's what started this whole recipe concept. You see, the tarragon I have growing in my garden is totally showing off right now (swipe to 2nd image). Bursting with new growth, I knew I had to use some in an upcoming recipe. So here you go!
.
If you've never had tarragon, it has a very bright and pungent anise flavor. My favorite way to use it is in dressings (like for this recipe) but it's also fantastic in soups or baked with a protein like tofu or seitan. And did you know it's an excellent source of calcium, iron, and manganese? It's true! I recommend purchasing a small plant of tarragon to grow in your garden or even in a small pot on your porch or by your back door so that you can begin incorporating it into your cooking. Before I had my own, I always had the hardest time finding some in the herb section of grocery stores. Once I started growing my own plant, my tarragon cooking needs have been met beautifully and I've been able to introduce it to my friends and family, who love it as well!

Big thanks to @kellogggarden for sponsoring this recipe and some upcoming content while I build my very own organic garden. Lots of tips, tricks and inspiration coming your way soon. 🤗

I snapped this pic in 2017.  Little did I know at the time, what a rare event the monarch invasion of my garden was.  That year I had over 25.  Last year zero.  This year I've counted 4.  I've lost track of the 4 that are out there but will keep watch for the butterflies to appear.  I do everything I can to provide a sanctuary for them.  You just never know when you'll be blessed with monarchs.  If you find one in your garden, enjoy every minute!.

Standard morning view, traffic whizzin by and a post-rain check on the garden to see what tipped over (one purple sprouting broccoli, which got a stake). My plants aren’t climbing their supports much and my brassicas have some fairly wimpy stalks due to lack of light in this shady-ish winter garden, but things are pluggin along nicely and looking green. Baby greens are popping up and marigolds and nasturtiums are melting as they do in the cold and wet weather. All around shaping up as a nice December garden as I mostly just let it do its thing..

I swear there is a house back there! 😜.

In this corner of the front garden, the last round of radishes and asian greens for the year are popping up, zinnias are overdue for a haircut, and the basil is determined to last until Christmas (along with the thai pepper). And that coffee cup has been there since Sunday. Maybe something will grow in there too!.

Chickpea Avocado Salad with a garlicky creamy dressing and loads of fresh herbs like dill, parsley, and basil.
.
A few things take this regular chickpea salad to  completely over the top good: crunchy chopped Marcona almonds, whole grain mustard, red wine vinegar, minced shallots, garlic paste, ripe avocado, and buttery castelvetrano olives are the all-stars. Of course, there are other ingredients but these are the heavy hitters. The full recipe is on my blog: mississippivegan.com or linked in my bio.
.
I can honestly say it is one of the best recipes I’ve created and I couldn’t push harder with my invitation for you to try it..A big part of this recipe (and pretty much all of my recipes) are the fresh herbs. Fresh herbs are packed with flavor. They also are packed with vitamins and minerals as well. For example, did you know parsley contains iron and vitamins A, C, and K? It’s true.
.
Another positive aspect of growing your own herbs is having access to them all the time. This elevates your cooking from being ‘ok’ to ‘excellent’. No matter what I am cooking, there’s always an opportunity to sprinkle on some fresh herbs for an extra punch of flavor and freshness. Sure, dried herbs are great. But did you know that the combination of dried herbs PLUS fresh herbs is one of my secret weapons in cooking?
.
Lucky for you it is quite easy to grow rosemary, thyme, parsley, dill, cilantro, and basil (just to name a few) in your very own garden or in pots on your front or back porch. Even if you only have a little bit of counter space in a big city, you can still grow most of these herbs in a pot inside, next to a window!
.
I hope this post inspires you to grow your own fresh herbs and to incorporate them more into your cooking. A great way to start would be with this recipe!
