Memorial Day
Citrus and Avodcados

Planning an outdoor celebration for Memorial Day? Show your patriotism by planting some beautiful containers to adorn your deck in the traditional colors--red, white and blue!

A good way to design these containers is to choose one plant for the center or back of the container that can remain in the pot indefinitely and filling in with foreground or perimeter plantings that can be changed with the seasons. Be sure to choose a pot large enough to accommodate the plants selected for it. If the pot does not have drainage holes, be sure to drill some before planting.



Most gardeners aim for a good display of flowers for as many months as possible, and now that spring bedding is past its best, it's time to set out the summer-flowering plants and containers for the patio. Think a little further ahead to provide color for the fall and winter as well.



What You'll Need:

  • 1 pint heavy cream
  • 1 tablespoon confectioners' sugar
  • 2 cups sour cream
  • 1 1/2 cups flaked coconut
  • 1 (20 ounce) can crushed pineapple, drained
  • 1 pint fresh strawberries, hulled and sliced
  • 1 pint fresh blueberries
  • 3 cups miniature marshmallows

Step by Step:

  • Use an electric mixer to whip together the heavy cream and confectioners' sugar in a large bowl; whip until thick but not grainy.
  • Mix in sour cream.
  • With a rubber spatula, fold in the flaked coconut, pineapple, strawberries, blueberries and marshmallows.
  • Mix until everything is evenly distributed.
  • Cover and chill for at least 4 hours before serving. (It's even better when chilled overnight.)

Makes 10 cups - but will disappear fast when you bring it to a cookout!
