  • Winter gardening restores

    There is something about working in the garden on a sunny winter day: It clears debris from both the perennial bed and the gardener’s head.   
    There is clarity to the winter landscape that is quite different than any other season.  On a clear day, the sky is a true blue, you can see all the birds flitting about the leafless trees.

  • Favorites of last year’s reading season

    Yes, I have a reading season, and each year the season gets a little longer as I reject television and radio listening more and more.
    The current state of our news cycle has helped push me back into books and this year I came across four titles that I particularly liked because they deepened my understanding of food and farming.  
    First Bite: How We Learn to Eat
    British food writer and historian, Bee Wilson, might as well have this book referenced in the pre-natal care part of the bookstore.

  • Easy Peanut Butter Fudge Recipe

    This fudge recipe uses marshmallows as an easy cheat in place of more elaborate candy-making.
    Have your lined baking pan ready to go before you start and work fast once you remove the saucepan from the heat. As the fudge starts to cool, it can become difficult work with.
    Ingredients
    1/2 cup whole milk
    6 regular-sized marshmallows (NOT mini or jumbo marshmallows, certified gluten-free if needed)
    3/4 cup (150 g) white granulated sugar
    3/4 cup (165 g) packed light brown sugar
    2 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • Blooming gifts may need some special care

    Live gifts during the holiday season are welcomed by gardeners … a poinsettia or two, a rosemary topiary, cyclamen, African violets and orchids give us something to fuss over during the winter months. But, sometimes our homes can be a hostile environment for many of the most popular indoor flowering plants.  
    Light levels, low humidity or a missed watering or two can turn a pretty plant ugly in no time.
