Grilled Eggplant

I’m a fan of wholesome food made fast. Recipes that take more than an hour or have more than 5 ingredients don’t usually make my dinner table. When it comes to fresh vegetables, grilling makes the fastest and simplest alternatives. Now that they’re ripening in the garden, lets start with Grilled Eggplant.

Green Tips!

Bee proactive!

A few things you can do to help keep bees healthy:

  • plant different flowers that bloom throughout the season for the bees;

    • native plants and other perennials

    • bloom colors of yellow, white,  blue, and purple

  • watch for neonicotinoid-free note on plant tags- some tags will claim that insecticides were used for ‘your plant’s health’ (but NOT for the bees!)

  • leave the blossoms until they expire

  • plant plants with fragrant flowers with a long bloom season

  • consider early blooming plants for bees that have had little nourishment over the winter
