PLEASE review the Grant RFP and details closely and note this has a very short time frame in order to disburse remaining grant funds to meet end of grant time lines. The grant aligns with the Food for a Long Life project that OSU Extension County, Family and Consumer Sciences participates in.

Harvesting a Healthy Spinach Salad

Jenny and I were back in the garden and the kitchen to create a healthy and delicious salad made from home grown spinach planted last fall, grown over winter and harvested fresh from the demonstration garden.  The spinach salad can be topped with any number of different fruits, nuts and cheeses as well.  Enjoy!

 

Lots of other fun and healthy growing and preparing videos can be found on our OSU Extension Franklin County YouTube channel.

Would you like to learn how to grow over winter?  Here is a virtual class recorded this past fall that will demonstrate the technique so that you can harvest homegrown spinach in the late winter and early spring.

Como Asar Elote a la Parrilla

Franklin County has a large and diverse population and at Extension we strive to serve all Ohioans.  Big thanks for the translation assist from my OSU Extension Franklin County colleague, Nora Hesse.  We will be translating more videos to engage more of our central Ohio client-residents.

El maíz dulce es delicioso y crece muy bien en Ohio. Se planta a mediados o finales de mayo, y se cosecha a finales del verano o principios del otoño. Asar a la parrilla es una manera fácil de preparar maíz dulce que maximiza su sabor. Aprenda a cultivar, cosechar y preparar maíz dulce con este video divertido y atractivo creado por OSU Extension Franklin County.
