  • Add edible flowers to your meals as a compliment

    I think about food so much this time of the year because vegetables abound and broilers and lambs are on pasture.  I have a deep appreciation for homegrown food and this includes making it look pretty when it is served for a meal, especially when we have guests!
    Any successful festivity needs food, friends and flowers; and the food and flowers can actually complement each other because there is a wide range of flowers that are edible.

  • Troop 60
  • Spinosad broad spectrum bio-insecticide

    I have a very small arsenal of insecticides and what I do have are considered bio-insecticides.
    Bio-insecticides are derived from naturally occurring micro-organisms like bacterium. They also include plant oils and compounds (like neem oil which acts as both an insecticide and fungicide), viruses and protozoa. When we use a bio-insecticide we are essentially using nature to eat nature.
