Plantrama - plants, landscapes, & bringing nature indoors

Oct 8, 2020

We’re celebrating fall with autumnal beverages, talking about applying fertilizer in the fall, and discussing cleaning up houseplants when you bring them back indoors.


:31   True or False: Winter is a good time to fertilize gardens.

4:38  Eat/Drink/Grow: Fall Cocktails and other garden or plant-based beverages.   

17:58  The Plant Noob: Cleaning up houseplants when you bring them back inside. Repotting now? Cut back? Fertilize? Insects?

26:24   Love Letters and Questions:   Liz asks about the shownotes.


For Two Cocktails

2 cups tightly packed kale

1 cup water

juice two limes

4 oz vodka or gin

1 Tbls agave syrup


The Process:  Cut enough kale into pieces to fill a 2-cup measure. Cover these pieces with water and place in a food processor or blender. Puree for a minute.

Strain the solids out of the pureed kale with a fine sieve, pressing with a spatula to get as much juice from the leaves as possible.


Squeeze the limes and add the lime juice, vodka, and agave syrup. Mix well or shake in a mason jar to combine. Pour into glasses over ice. Garnish with a small kale leaf.
