Time to Clean Out your Refrigerator

November 5th, 2011

With the change of seasons there is a need to make a quick clean so you have plenty of space for the herbs from your Herb Garden! On the 15th of November is Clean your Refrigerator Day. We don’t know how it got started, all we know is that it is a very good idea. With the change of seasons there is a change of cuisine, and most likely if you haven’t eaten it yet, most likely you won’t. So, here are some tips for a quick clean.

For a quick clean all you will need is a garbage bag, a clean sponge, a container with water and dish soap, and perhaps a pair of plastic gloves if you are like some people that forget what they have in their refrigerator until it’s too late. Start from top to bottom, this will enable you to not only throw out the unnecessary items, but also wipe the refrigerator down. Start with the freezer down, if it is easier, spread out a garbage bag on the floor to help you sort if there are a lot of things. Otherwise, simply move things from one side to the other. Throw out anything that has an overdue date, if you can’t see yourself eating it in the near future, and if simply cannot recognize what it is.

Once your refrigerator is cleaned chop up the herbs from your Herb Garden and place them in plastic bags in the freezer to use later.

Whether you have an Aerogarden or a garden in the back yard, you may find yourself trying to figure out what to do with all of your crops. This goes both for your beautiful flowers as well as the crops that you’ve taken care of all summer. There are numerous ways that you can put them to use, both to help you as well as your family and friends.

You can utilize your crops by keeping them for the cold winter months through freezing. Simply cut them up and place them in plastic Ziploc bags and place them in the freezer. This way you can have a fresh reminder of the summer when the temperature drops below zero. If you don’t want to deal with freezing them simply share them with family, friends, neighbours, and co-workers. A basket full of fresh produce from your home garden will surely help improve any relationship. The same goes for a beautiful flower bouquet, wouldn’t it be nicer to give them to someone than to watch them quickly dry up in the garden?

If you aren’t big on bouquets you can do the alternative, get creative. Make a gift basket with herbs, simply dry them and place them in pretty boxes or bags. Flowers can also be dried and the petals used for sachets. Or simply freeze the herbs and use them later when cooking.

The Aerogarden will offer plenty of great produce and flowers, and eventually you may find yourself wondering what to do with it all.
