  • Go Cubs Go!

    Go Cubs Go is the name of the fight song that the fans sing following a win by their beloved Cubbies in Wrigley Field.  
    It is a real catchy jingle that has one singing along with the fans and long after the game is over and people are on the way home.  
    This year the song was sung more than in any year in recent memory as the Cubs had a year to remember.

  • Planting garlic, digging sweet potatoes

    There are two categories of garlic to consider: Allium sativum, or soft-neck garlic and Allium ophioscordon, or hard-neck garlic.   
    Soft-neck garlic is the easiest and most widely cultivated because the bulbs are large and the cloves and skin are tight, which prevent moisture loss and allows for longer storage.
