Learn How to Create Treats Fresh from the Garden

I was very fortunate to still find wonderful cool weather vegetables* that are bound to be a delicious treat!

For a container, I chose a woven wooden basket measures nine inches long and eight inches wide.  Since the basket did not have a liner, I used a plastic bag to line the basket.

The plants include one four inch pot of Stone head cabbage, one four inch pot of red cabbage, and one four inch pot of Red Sails lettuce.

For decorative accessories, I included a small green and white pumpkin, a little moss to cover one area, and a decorative wooden sign that measures three and one half inches tall and eight inches wide.

The finished basket measures seventeen tall and twelve inches wide.

You may not find the same vegetables that I found, but it’s worth cooking great veggies for your friends or family!

I hope you can find wonderful veggies and do follow through with inviting friends.

*Editor’s Note: At this time, Behnke’s does not have edible cool-season vegetables, but a similar arrangement with our decorative cabbages and kale and/or herbs would look fantastic!

Stephanie Fleming was raised at Behnke’s Nurseries in Beltsville. Her Mom, Sonja, was one of Albert & Rose Behnke’s four children. She was weeding from the moment she could walk and hiding as soon as she was old enough to run, so many weeds, so little time. Although she quickly learned how to pull out a perennial and get taken off of weed pulling duty.
