If you go out in the woods today……. look for mushrooms!
I finally remembered to bring my camera this morning on my hike through Horth Hill..
its been perfect growing conditions here in the pacific northwest
they are everywhere..
different shapes & sizes
some are very colorful!
and large , the size of a dinner plate…
too bad they aren’t edible
I’m assuming that or they would be gone…lol!
I’m not about to try…
they are simply a feast for my eyes..
and maybe yours too 😉
What to do with all of your beautiful celery greens? This recipe is a hit..
Thank-you to –
I found her recipe for Celery Almond Pesto; mine is just a little different!
I used 4c of celery leaves
1/3 cup of whole almonds (not blanched)
2 large garlic cloves
1/3 cup parmigiano reggiano
2/3 cup olive oil( this is a little too much for me)
Lemon juice to taste
Chopped nuts and garlic together, grated the cheese
added to celery leaves and blended, slowly adding olive oil
then stirred in the lemon juice…
Look at the color of this. I hope its as intense on your screen, it is so vibrant and so is the flavor! More mild and sweeter than basil or garlic space pesto’s. Don’t throw away your greens….you should really try it 🙂
Its a been a beautiful weekend 🙂
Here’s what is happening in the garden

Were you wondering what to do with all of those celery leaves, it seems such a waste to discard them…
I just had this conversation last night! Well.. Laura , this is for you 😉
I found several websites today with recipes and nutritional info on the use of Celery Leaves…don’t throw them away, they are the best part of the plant, and you can use them in Pesto!
Ok, I haven’t tried this…. yet…. but I’m excited to give a go since I have so much Celery, I love pesto.. and it almost time to harvest all of it!
I’ve grown Tall Utah, it has really long slender stems and loads of green leaves
they can be chopped into salads, stir-fry’s, soups, stews, dried or frozen …
They can also be used in green smoothies!
