Year Round Gardening Tips with Pumpkin Ridge Gardens

July 23, 2014


Join us this Saturday, July 26th, for a chat with Pumpkin Ridge Gardens about year round gardening. They'll be giving an informal talk at their booth, and will be giving out leek starts (while supplies last). Be sure to stop by and check it out! 

We've also included a delicious recipe for a Leek Gratin:

LEEK GRATIN from Polly Gottesman of Pumpkin Ridge Gardens

  • 6 leeks

  • 5 Tbsp. butter

  • 3 Tbsp. flour

  • 1 ½ c. milk

  • 6 oz. soft goat cheese

  • 4 oz. pancetta (optional)

  • 1 ½ c. grated gruyere

  • salt and pepper

  • nutmeg


Slice leeks into thin rounds about ¼” thick. Slice pancetta into strips. Saute pancetta and leeks in about 2 Tbsp. butter until soft. Meanwhile, make a white sauce: melt 3 Tbsp. butter and stir in flour. Cook over medium heat for 3-5 minutes. Slowly add milk while stirring constantly. When white sauce has desired consistency, stir in goat cheese. Season with salt and pepper and a pinch of nutmeg. Transfer leek and pancetta to a gratin dish. Pour white sauce over leeks. Sprinkle grated cheese over the top. Bake in a 350 degree oven until bubbling and brown, about 25-30 minutes.

Polly Gottesman co-owns Pumpkin Ridge Gardens, a year-round CSA, located in North Plains, Oregon. She and partner Lyn Jacobs, who co-owns La Finquita del Buho CSA, sell vegetable starts, flowers and dried creations at the Beaverton Farmers’ Market and can be consulted there on Saturdays 8 am to 1:30 pm from May 3rd until November 22nd.
