Making Peach Crisp – Wisconsin Garden Video Blog 790

See More Garden Goodies: http://www.WisconsinGarden.com – – – This afternoon we’re making peach crisp from our peach trees. So far we’ve made over 18 pints of peach jam and 4 pints of peach sauce. While we’ve picked hundreds from our O’Henry and Red Haven peach trees, our two Elberta peaches have yet to ripen. Perhaps some will be ready sometime next week and those we will be freezing and canning. We both enjoy America’s Test Kitchen because they explain the science behind what they do and why they cook things a specific way. So I’m going to be using one of their recipes. Now that Richard and I have some delicious peach jam and sauce for our occasional ice cream sundaes, we thought we’d top off tonight’s supper with some warm peach crisp. Wish smell-o-vision was here so you could join us in activating your taste buds once again.

Touring A Clean Water Treatment Plant – Wisconsin Garden Video Blog 787

See More Garden Goodies: http://www.WisconsinGarden.com – – – Today we’ll be touring a clean water treatment plant in Waukesha Wisconsin. We’ve been invited to join this tour by Joanna Salinas from the Waukesha County Green Team as part of their Green Drinks tours. Our guide for today will be Nate Tillis, plant maintenance supervisor, who will be explaining how the multiple stages of wastewater sludge is skimmed, condensed and processed for removal while the majority of water is filtered and cleansed through multiple stages before it can be released to the river and ultimately nature’s filtering aquifer. As Waukesha County expands so is the demand for water. In the near future Waukesha will be receiving its water supply from Lake Michigan after years of negotiations with the Great Lakes Compact Council approving miles of pipeline that will soon have to be built from Oak Creek to Waukesha. Waukesha will then return treated wastewater via the Root River. So the next time you flush your toilet you now have a cleaner idea of where all the waste goes and how it’s refined, processed and removed before being sent back to nature’s waterways, and ultimately the drinking water resource of the future. As past of a worldwide gardening community, we too are stewards of the land and need to know how we can help protect our most valuable resource – water.

Making Peach Jam With My Daughter – Wisconsin Garden Video Blog 786

Today we will be making peach jam with my daughter Lace. It’s been nearly one week since we harvested our first batch of peaches, wrapped each one in newsprint and set them downstairs in a cool dark place to ripen. We’ll be following the traditional Sur-Gel recipe. We start by pealing and pitting 3 pounds (4 cups) finely chopped peaches, add 2 tablespoons of fresh squeezed Lemon Juice, one package of Sur-Gel (pectin), ½ teaspoon of butter (reduces foam) and mix thoroughly. We’ll bring this to a rolling boil and slowly add 5 ½ Cups of sugar while constantly stirring back to a rolling boil. Set the timer for 1 minute while stirring constantly. Ladle into sterilize canning jars. Wipe jar rim and threads then cover with pre-softened lids and rings. Tighten rings firmly but not overly tight. Place each jar on rack in steamer (or in full bath), cover and allow to come to a boil and watch for a plum of steam 8” long (for the steamer). Set timer for 5 minutes. Turn burner off leaving cover in place for one minute. Carefully remove cover away from you (Steamy) and remove jars, placing upright on a towel to cool completely. You’ll hear each lid pop or once cool, press the center of the lid, if it springs back it’s not sealed. Either reprocess that jar with a new lid or simply place a jar that doesn’t properly seal in your refrigerator to use immediately. It will easily keep for up to 3 weeks, possibly longer. Now it’s time to enjoy this very tasty treat. Delicious!

Harvesting Garlic – Wisconsin Garden Video Blog 784

See More Garden Goodies: http://www.WisconsinGarden.com – – – It’s the end of July and it’s time for harvesting Garlic in Wisconsin. Garlic is one of the simplest plants to grow. Late last fall we planted 3 raised beds with purple stripped hardneck garlic cloves and simply planted each clove 4” deep and 6” apart. We covered them with a couple of inches straw mulch and let nature do all the rest. As the plant grows each leaf indicate the number of clove in the maturing bulb. When the bottom 4-5 leaves turn brown we know it’s time to harvest. Today we counted 187 garlic bulbs from 3 of our raised beds more than enough to last us through next year. Join us today as we carefully dig out all of our new garlic bulbs.

Summer Prairie Garden Tour – Wisconsin Garden Video Blog 780

See More Garden Goodies: http://www.WisconsinGarden.com – – – This summer prairie garden tour is the 4th in our seasonal tours of the prairies at the Redeemer United Church Of Christ in Sussex Wisconsin. We’ve had the distinct pleasure of having Nancy & Rick Vollbrecht take us on the fall and seed harvesting, winter & spring tours and now the summer tour where we get to see the prairie in all its glory. With over 40 different native varieties of healthy plants, this prairie continues to expand and surprise all of us as we find more native plants growing in places where they were never planted. The prairie is now expanding itself on its own. Today we will see many varieties including compass plants, false sunflowers, grey headed coneflowers, bergamot, weeping daisies, blue vervain, rosinweed, echinacea, butterfly weed, prairie dock, mullein, ironweed, culver’s root, rattlesnake master, penstemon, lead plant, common milkweed and invasive plants such as chickery, queens anne lace, thistles, knapweed, curly dock and a very invasive Butter & Egg plant. It truly has been a lush and beautiful year for this amazing prairie garden in Sussex, Wisconsin. We hope you’ll take time to visit it in person.
