Grow Some Homemade Soup for Valentine?s Day

 
Celebrate Valentine’s Day and National Homemade Soup Day by sharing a bowl of soup with the ones you love.  And while you sip some soup, start planning the soup ingredients you’ll grow in this year’s garden.
 
Start with a look at your favorite soup recipes.  Then decide what vegetables will grow best in your garden and store well for making winter soups.
 
Root crops such as carrots, turnips, parsnips and rutabagas are great choices since they store well and add nutrition to winter soups and stews.
 
Butternut, acorn and other winter squash make wonderful warm winter soups.  The texture, color, and flavor make it a great starter or complete meal for fall and winter.
 
And of course don’t forget the potatoes, onions and garlic.  All work well in container gardens and you can interplant the onions and garlic with other vegetables and flowers in your landscape.
 
A bit more information:  Grow carrots, turnips and other root crops in well drained soil, raised beds or deep containers for best results.  And grow short varieties of carrots if splitting and distortion have been a problem in the past.
