Locally Grown Food and Cancer Prevention

Moms For Local Food ( Kayla G. and I) spent much of this morning at an American Cancer Society(ACS) fundraising ride this morning. I was hot but our time was well spent. We put together a nice handout on locally grown food and cancer prevention and even handed out a few. Kayla and I got a chance to catch up on a more personal level as well. I also had the opportunity to reflect on the depth of the problem we face with our goal to re-localize our food supply. Do people really make the connection… Continue

The Ant And The Grasshopper - Interesting Insight


This one is a little different ...

Two Different Versions ...

Two Different Morals


The ant works hard in the withering heat all summer long, building his

house and laying up supplies for the winter.

The grasshopper thinks the ant is a fool and laughs and dances and plays

the summer away.

Located in the northeast corner of the Master Gardeners Demonstration Garden in Nathanael Greene Park, we find the potager garden. In the United States, the potager garden is commonly called the kitchen garden. Being a kitchen garden, vegetables are on top of the list. Herbs, flowers, vines, and berries are often included. The variety of plants is left to the imagination of the gardener… Continue

I’m turning the TV off. Nothing new on the Sunday morning shows. Do I mean new in the last year? Two years? Nope. I mean new since Nixon…. Possibly even before. Since then we have been globalizing. With every step in that direction, furthered by every consecutive administration, we have diminished our local economies ( and in turn the US economy) , we have diminished our health and…

Issues with plants?

Hello, I was wondering if anyone else has noticed strange or weird spotting/burning or dying of any of their plants? Fruit/Vegetable or Flower types, we are seeing some really unidentifiable damage that we don't understand or recognizer. Please let me know if anyone else is seeing anything strange with their plants & what maybe could be done to remedy these issues. Thank you in advance, Brad Richard - Ava, Mo! :)

Some exotic plants damage instead of help

Some exotic plants damage instead of help

Written by Francis Skalicky

Published in the News-Leader July 8, 2010

Sometimes, introducing exotic plants into a habitat is the equivalent of throwing a wrench into the cogs of a machine: In some cases, the machine continues to operate, but at a much-reduced efficiency. In other cases, the machine will completely shut down.

Summer is the annual peak of the human vs. exotic plant battle. Now is when the exotic plants are… Continue
