November: What We’re Growing in our Backyard Oklahoma Urban Garden

November monthly article

Happy November! November is a month for feasting, and what better way to celebrate the holidays and give thanks than to eat what you’ve grown in your garden!

Hopefully, you’ve already harvested your sweet potatoes from the garden and have them stored in your pantry. The classic Thanksgiving dish, sweet potatoes, are a great addition to any meal this season! Impress all your relatives by making a Thanksgiving dish with food grown directly from your garden!

One of our favorite side dishes including sweet potatoes is a combination of our homegrown sweet potatoes and carrots sauteed in butter, then roasted in the oven. Try topping them with some herbs from the garden to make it taste unique each time! Our favorite herbs to use this time of year are oregano, thyme, and rosemary. Not only do they make dishes taste great, but they also add a lot of nutritional value as well!
