Recipes from the Garden

Sukkot, which begins this Sunday night, is a holiday to give thanks for the fall harvest. We are thankful for our Campscape garden, and in celebration wanted to share some recipes from the garden! Another Sukkot tradition is to invite friends, family, and even strangers into your sukkah to rejoice- so make some fried green tomatoes and limonana and celebrate Sukkot!

Directions:
Blend well in a blender, till ice is pulverized and mint is in very tiny pieces.
Beware of brain freeze!
The perfect end to tending the garden!
