The Nation's First "Food Forest"

If your looking for an innovative idea put into practice, here it is. I have for a long time now tried to implement this sort of thing on local area farms and ranches where the perenial food is put into place and there is little to no upkeep. Certainly not on a daily or weekly basis. Take a look at this plan and I think you'll agree with me, it will be worth watching as it comes to fruition.

Share the Seed: How a Seed Swap Works

By Jill Henderson - Show Me Oz

Swapping seeds is both fun and addictive. I remember the first time I began swapping seeds with other seed-junkies in 1999, using a then obscure method of communication known as the internet.

Bald Eagles on the Rise

A few years ago, on a day much like today, Dean and I spotted a pair of adult bald eagles circling lazily on the warm, rising thermals of a mid-winter day. Their white head and tail feathers shone brightly against…

Has anyone given any real thought to the "homeless problem"?

A post in another thread got me on the so called "homeless problem".

The root of the problem is guberment. "Guberment is a disease posing as the cure." It takes a  little bit of thought but if you will follow along, I think you too will be convinced that illicit  guberment  involvement is a major contributor to creating the homeless problem. The guberment interferes with the free market which would come up with all sorts of solutions.

TJ had a lot right when he…

Flouoride in City water and your childs mind

What do you think would happen if you went to a city council meeting and surreptitiously added a little sodium fluoride in the coffee pot for the meeting?  What if you dropped to few Prozac in that coffee pot to force medicate the city council?

I can darn well guarantee you that doing either - you would be charged with trying to poison them or an act of terrorism.

What if I handed out Prozac to your children disguised as Halloween candy? Is this not exactly what the…

Burn Therapy N Eggs

What does burn therapy n eggs have in common?

Egg whites have just about all the nutrients including collagen.

Here is the long and short of this up front. Do keep in mind that this is taught to firefighters and emergency personal as well.

1. Spray cool water on burned area till the heat is worked out of the burned area.

2. If available, coat the area with fresh cut aloe vera gel. This must be fresh! Bottled or stored in the fridge won't work. The active…

Seed Saving: Beans & Peas

If you are planning on saving some of your own seeds this coming summer, the very best time to start is before a single seed goes in the ground. In fact, saving seed should begin with that catalog you’ve been perusing all winter. Seed catalogs are often filled…

Essential Herbs: Lemon Balm

By Jill Henderson

Lemon balm is one of my favorite herbs for many reasons. To start, it is by far one of the easiest herbs to grow and it’s beautiful to look at, as well. I particularly like the way lemon balm attracts beneficial insects and butterflies to my garden. Occasionally, even the hummingbirds…
