Now that the weather has warmed and the cool chill of spring nights has faded into a sweet memory the herbs in the garden have exploded into a miniature jungle of green leaves and small, but lovely flowers. Amid the… Continue

The website says, “Squash blossoms stem from, you guessed it, squashes. The flowers from either winter or summer squash are edible and delicious, known as squash blossoms and available in varying shades of yellow and orange. Their flavor is light and airy – as the blossoms are…

Hi folks, I would like to introduce you to the pallet garden idea which is similar to the barrel garden but a bit less labor intensive and less expensive. Below I will attempt to describe how to build your own should you be the do-it-yourselfer.
What we have done is take a selected pallet that is approx. 4'x4'. Just a little smaller than a roll of landscape cloth. You can actually go as long as you want but be sure and finish this on site where you plan to set it up, as they get heavy… Continue

LAMAR, Mo. -- Couscous (pronounced koos-koos) is gaining popularity as a quick to fix side dish or, with the right ingredients, as a part of a one-dish meal according to Tammy Roberts, a nutrition and health education specialist with University of Missouri Extension. “Couscous cooks quickly and blends well with a variety of foods,” said Roberts.
Couscous is actually yellow granules of semolina which is made by milling hard durum wheat. The American Dietetic Association classifies it… Continue

This is very comprehensive and consists of 20 short films in a playlist.
It presents information that you have not ever seen even if you (like me) think you are on top of this
abomination. After watching I think you ought to raise a ruckus with your owners (the Springfield city council) and ask then why they think it is OK to drug you and your children. Lowering their IQ and damaging their bodies. Is this the reason you pay half of what you… Continue

Got 14 bulbs. Planted about 20 in our raised bed square foot garden but the squirrels kept digging them up. Nice harvest though. These bulbs and their cloves are huge.

Thanks so much for your friendship, support, and obviously the Garlic starts you gave me.… Continue

Do you love the USDA/FDA yet? They are one and the same. Do you want another tyranny to replace this one?
They both do not care if you live or die. They want special interests to make money on you being unhealthy.
There are a dozen cancer cures and just as many for all degenerative diseases. Your government thinks you need to die.
When is enough .... enough?

Just realized we don't really have a place for this in the classifieds so, I will just jot it here.
Last week I found a young Blonde Lab running around my neighborhood in southeast sgf/galloway area. No tags or collar, but he appears to be trained so I have been trying to find his owner. But I already have more pets than I can manage so I need to find him a place to stay.
If you are looking for a good sturdy outside dog, this one would be a good find.
