NOGAK NAMUL (cooked cucumber recipe)

This is a good way to use your old, overgrown, or over ripe cucumber, although you could use regular ones too.

1 cucumber (old, overgrown, or regular)
1 green onion, roughly chopped
2 Tbsp perilla oil (Korean ingredient, sesame oil is an acceptable substitute)
1 tsp garlic, finely chopped
4 tbsp water
½ tsp sea salt
Pinch perilla seeds (optional, or sesame seeds)

Peel cucumber and cut in half lengthwise. Scoop out the seeds from the center. Slice into thin slices. Chop garlic and green onions.

Heat the oil in frying pan medium high. Add cucumber, garlic’ and green onions. Saute for 3 minutes.

Add 4 tbsp water to pan and continue cooking an additional 2 minutes or so until most of the water is gone.

Garnish with more chopped green onions and perilla seeds . Serve warm or cold as a side dish.


Ooooh

Have you tried epsom salt on your peppers? I use 1 TBSP/gal. water, and give each plant about a cup full every couple of weeks, and especially when they start to bloom.

I have not, I planted in straight up composted manure so I figured they had too much nutrition

Well, it also greens up a plant because it increases chlorophyll, and if your soil is low in magnesium then all your plants will benefit from epsom salt.

Hey there Every one!

Goodness its been awhile since i was last visiting here. sept 10 2020 was the last time i posted and its been embarrassingly long since i came to visit. The last few years have been wild with everything going on. Unfortunately this group and a few other online ones got set off to the side for a bit

I'm nearing the end of my current degree, with luck i'll be graduating sometime next year and hopefully heading into a related career. Maybe not the one i was hoping or even guessing but none the less exciting still.

I'll have to snag some pics of the garden now, ITs changed a lot! The prior way we were growing wasn't working for everyone so we did a bit of an overhaul and as always its a work in progress lol.

We've chickens and ducks both again. The toruble neighbour moved, but the owner of that house moved in and that has been its own basket of hamsters.

More updates and regular visits to come hopefully?
