Growing your own dahlias is easy | This Week in the Garden - Santa Cruz Sentinel

Do you have a favorite flower? You can bet that most members of the Monterey Bay Dahlia Society do and that they can tell you exactly why they are so devoted to these members of the daisy family from Mexico. MBDS member Anne Berg is definitely a devotee. She now grows dozens of the plants on her Santa Cruz property where she and her husband have gardened since 1978.How did she get smitten with dahlias? Some years ago, she happened to stop by the annual late-summer flower show put on each year by MBDS. She was overwhelmed by the gorgeous flowers she saw there and became determined to produce such beauty in her own garden. She joined MBDS and began attending monthly meetings so she could meet like-minded people and learn from the local experts. Her collection of dahlias increased rapidly and so did her understanding of how to grow show-worthy flowers. Fast forward to today and Berg is now one of the experts herself. She shared some of her tried and true tips for producing vigorous free-flowering plants. Berg’s dahlia year starts in early December when sh...

Live a little, eat a flower | Sweet Basil and the Bee - Chico Enterprise-Record

Oaxacan, Monterey Jack, or Muenster cheese, grated 12 corn or flour tortillas 6 tablespoons unsalted butter Salsa verde for serving Instructions: Put the poblano under the broiler for about 10 minutes, turning once until it blackens. Place in a plastic bag, close it and let it sit for about 20 minutes. After this time has passed, take poblano out of the bag, peel it (skin should shred off easily), remove stem and seeds and dice. Gently wash squash blossoms (there might be bugs inside) and remove stems and stamens. Roughly chop. Heat skillet to medium and add the olive oil. Add onions and diced poblano and cook for about 5 minutes or until onions are translucent. Add garlic, epazote, squash blossoms, salt, and pepper and sauté for 10 minutes or until all the liquid from the flowers has evaporated. Remove from heat and set squash-blossom filling aside. Taste and adjust seasonings, if needed. In a skillet heated to medium, melt a tablespoon of butter. Add a tortilla and cook it on one side until it puffs (about 30 seconds). Flip tortilla over and sprinkle over entire surface 1/4 cup of squash blossom filling and 1/2 cup of grated cheese. Top with another tortilla, and after cheese has melted and the two tortillas stick together (a couple of minutes), flip quesadilla and cook for a couple of minutes more or until lightly browned. Repeat for the remainder of the filling and tortillas. Serve warm with salsa verde on the side, if you like. Salsa verde Ingredients for the salsa verde: 1 1/2 pounds tomatillos, husked 1/2 medium yellow onion, peeled, cut into wedges 3 cloves garlic, peeled 1 or 2 Serrano chiles, seeded and cut in half 1 cup cilantro Salt to taste Instructions: To make the salsa, place the tomatillos, onion, garlic, serrano chiles and cilantro in a large pot. Add 3 cups of water and bring to a boil on high. Continue to boil uncovered for 10 minutes or until the tomatillos go from a bright green to a light, muted green (If the water doesn’t cover them completely, don’t add more water just turn the tomatillos in the pot halfway through the cooking so all sides are exposed to the boiling water). Turn of the heat and let cool for 10 minutes. Transfer the pot contents to a blender and blend until smooth. (If you don’t let the vegetables cool, the steam will make the blender lid pop off, which makes for a bit of a mess.) Add salt to taste. Burrata-stuffed squash blossoms and olive tapenade crostini Adapted from Melissa Clark — serves four. A simpler presentation is Melissa Clark’s appetizer of squash blossoms, black olive tapenade and crostini. You can make the tapenade or buy a good quality one in a jar and skip that step. Ingredients: For the tapenade: 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for brushing crostini 1 cup pitted mixed black olives, coarsely chopped 3 anchovy fillets, chopped 1 large garlic clove, minced 1 teaspoon chopped rosemary 1 teaspoon finely grated lemon zest For the crostini and squash blossoms: 1 baguette, sliced 1/4-inch thick on an angle Flaky sea salt, such as Maldon 12 squash blossoms 1-piece burrata or buffalo mozzarella Directions for the tapenade: Add the olives, anchovies, garlic, rosemary, and lemon zest to the bowl of a food processor, and pulse until coarsely chopped and mixed together. Drizzle in the 3 tablespoons of olive oil, and pulse until a cohesive paste forms. Skip, if you are using purchased tapenade.

On Gardening | There are many benefits to the Sticky Monkey Flower - Santa Cruz Sentinel

Sticky Monkey Flower thrives in a wide range of difficult soil types when good drainage is provided. It requires little or no irrigation during the Monterey Bay area’s summer-dry climate. This plant occurs in many different vegetation habitats and is compatible with a large number of other California native plant communities. For this reason, it offers considerable versatility in the landscape and can have many other native plants as suitable companions. The Sticky Monkey Flower attracts hummingbirds, butterflies and bees, and also resists deer. Maintenance recommendations include installing deep organic mulch to conserve moisture and discourage weeds, pinching back new growth in spring to maintain compact form, and deadheading spent blossoms to foster flower production. There are at least six species within the genus Mimulus (or Diplacus) and a growing number of hybrid cultivars. For an overview of the genus, visit the Las Pilatus Nursery website (www.laspilitas.com) and search for “monkey flowers.” The Sticky Monkey Flower is a good example of a California native plant that offers ready availability at local garden centers, low maintenance, and very good “garden-worthiness.” If you have been hesitant about using California native plants in your landscape, this plant could change your mind. A timely opportunity to discover new plants for your garden occurs this weekend, at the annual Mother’s Day Sale of Cabrillo College’s Horticulture Department. This academic program is a fine horticultural resource for the Monterey Bay area, and this sale is both a good shopping event and an important fund-raiser for the Hort. Dept. For information including plant list, search the internet for “Cabrillo plant sale.” Include California native plants in your garden!
