Learn how to preserve your homegrown garden harvest by canning vegetables and fruits at home! Canning is a method to preserve food in jars at high temperatures for a long period of time, killing microorganisms and inactivates enzymes. The heating process removes air from the jar, creating a vacuum seal as food cools. Before getting started, you will need some basic canning tools to make your canning process easy. *Please note: Canning supplies are in high demand right now. Many products keeping running low on stock or are out of stock temporarily.

How to Hand Pollinate Squash for a Superior Harvest
Hand pollinating summer squash is easier than you might think. It's vital to have the flowers pollinated for a productive harvest. Typically this will be done by bees, butterflies, and other insects. However if you are finding that your squash are not growing well, rotting, or falling off small you might have a problem with pollination. The easiest way to pollinate squash plants for having the highest yields is by hand. The first important step is to understand that there are male flowers and female flowers. The male flowers are the ones with the long skinny stems that will not turn into fruit below the flower. Only the female flowers can bear fruit. When you look at the female flowers they should have a small tiny fruit growing below the flower and a stigma inside the center of the flower. You can pick the male flower, peel back the petals and simply touch it to the female stigma a couple of times as if you are brushing paint. Do not remove the female flower. The goal is to transfer some pollen from the male flower onto the female flower, it really is just as easy as that! The positive results you will see in your garden include more fruits per plant and an earlier harvest.

Swiss chard is high in vitamins A, K and C. It is also rich in minerals, dietary fiber and protein. There are a rainbow full of colors to choose from! We love Swiss chard because it is super easy to grow, hardy and tolerant of cold and heat, and so delicious. Most importantly the seeds are organic and non-gmo!
Swiss Chard is great to eat raw in a salad, slightly steamed, or sauted. Swiss Chard meal ideas I love include adding the baby greens on to sandwiches, tossing in a salad, adding to soups, stir fries, and probably one my favorites is to toss the greens with olive oil and apple cider vinegar and add them fresh on a pizza!

PAUL LOVES KALE! There is no question about that. In fact, Paul plants several varieties of kale in his garden. When we asked him, "What is your favorite vegetable or fruit to grow and eat?" there was no hesitation before he answered "Red Russian Kale." Therefore, this is our first recommended seed of the month!
If you have been on one of Paul's garden tours, you know that Paul recommends to eat a piece of kale from the stem upwards towards the leaf. Traditionally, people discard the stem of kale. Paul does not. Why? When you grow your own kale in a Back to Eden garden, it tastes sweet, is full of water, is super tender, and is full of nutrients!
Kale is considered to be a highly nutritious vegetable with powerful antioxidant properties; kale is considered to be anti-inflammatory. Kale is very high in beta carotene, vitamin K, vitamin C, and reasonably rich in calcium. If you are looking for a new heirloom, non-gmo, variety of kale to plant in your garden, we recommend growing Red Russian Kale. It is a hearty variety that is an excellent producer in cooler growing seasons.
