Gathering your own seeds is a great way to save money, and to have fresh, viable seeds to plant every year in your garden. Collecting tomato seeds is really easy to do, and it is a great way to make use of those tomatoes that are split or damaged that you would not want to eat. Here's how to do it.
With the 4th of July right around the corner, this is a subject that many people will find useful! Outside barbecues, pool parties, picnics and outdoor sports all will cause people to be out in the sun longer than they normally are. Many people will use common sense and make sure to generously apply sunscreen, but even then it can be washed off by sweat, or watered down by swimming, leaving part or all of your skin open to the burning rays of the sun. Some, of course, will not wear sunscreen at all, so they are doubly susceptible to getting sunburn. Ouch!
A Delicious Chilled Salad for Summer Meals
If you garden like I do, you have an abundance of fresh vegetables in the summer months. I have so many that I keep a separate folder of recipes just for vegetable recipes that are great cold summer meals. This cauliflower salad recipe is one of my favorites. You can make it as a side, or as the main dish. It's easy to make and extremely inexpensive if you have a vegetable garden!
Hard to believe it's been 9 weeks since we bought our meat chicks. In that time they went from chicks to teenagers to adults ready to harvest. It really was unbelievable how quickly they grew up, so much faster than the laying hen chicks we bought at the same time. I would say the rate at which the meat birds grew was almost double to the rate of the laying hens, on the same food. They also ate a lot more! I noticed the meat birds didn't really do much of anything other than eat and roost.
Well, this is Memorial weekend. Most people have Monday off work, so it is the perfect time for a cookout. But cookouts are so common, what can you do to make yours different and special? Make it a Mexican fiesta! Everyone loves Mexican food, but instead of doing the same old tired taco/burrito menu, make traditional cookout food but with a Mexican flair! Here's some great recipes to make your fiesta cookout the most memorable ever!
Simple Syrup is an easy to make sweetener with so many uses! Many people think that use it think it is only good for making adult beverages. Now, while it is good for that, there are so many other uses for it, this is something you need to know how to make and how to use. Let's begin!
It's finally time to start my seeds. This winter has been so long and cold, I was beginning to wonder if it would ever end. But the time has finally arrived to plant my seeds and begin preparing my garden beds. It is exciting!
Over the years of gardening, I have tried several methods of starting seedlings with varying success. I wasn't really impressed with any of them. Some were too expensive, some were too much trouble and some fell apart before I was able to replant. So last spring I had an idea while at a family restaurant. I tried it out because I wanted to see how it worked before writing about it. I think it worked like a charm and it was also cheap and easy! Can't get much better than that. Let me show you what I did.
I was going through my old cookbook and I found an interesting recipe that I thought I would try. I had never heard of it before, but when I made it, I really thought it was delicious and it was fairly easy and not expensive. It will be even less expensive this summer when the harvest comes in and I am buried in peppers, onions, garlic and tomatoes. A perfect dish for gardeners!
We got these little chicks on March 31st, roughly a month ago. At that time they were pretty small. When I look at them today, it is amazing how much they have grown, especially the meat birds. They have quadrupled in size, easily! Thankfully, their feathers are finally growing in, so the bald patches they have had since the beginning are filling in. They still are kind of shaggy looking, but they are slowly looking more like real chickens!
