Green B.E.A.N Delivery

As a supporter for sustainability and local products what are we doing as a community to distribute locally grown products to those that need them?  I would suggest that our local farmers and artisans are focused on their crops and trade rather than trying to develop a new distribution model, but that is just what Green B.E.A.N. delivery has done in Ohio, Kentucky, and Indiana. Green B.E.A.N Delivery

Homemade Electrolyte for You and Your Animals

I recently came across a recipe for homemade electrolyte for your farm animals and decided to use my health and wellness back ground to make it even better.

In the heat of the summer, all of us, including our livestock and pets can use a good electrolyte supplement to help keep our bodies hydrated, alkaline and functioning properly.

Remember, electrolyte is alkaline in nature. Our bodies are meant to be alkaline. No cancer can live in an alkaline body and most other diseases…

An open letter to the Greene County Commissioners:

Just a note to let you know my level of concern has increased reference the lack of Greene County’s financial support for the Greene County Extension Center’s office operating budget.

A Gardener’s Dream

Our new garden. © 2012 Jill Henderson By Jill Henderson - Show Me Oz -

Almost a year ago now, my husband and I settled down into our latest ‘new place’. We’ve lived quite the nomadic lifestyle over the last 20 years, moving to another house, state, or even country every few years.  In…

Gardening With Wildlife: Beefing Up Your Habitat

By Jill Henderson – Show Me Oz –

 

One of the coolest things about being a country gardener is that I am constantly surrounded by wild things. These creatures are part and parcel of a healthy ecosystem and one of the rarest and most precious gifts that one can have. However, it goes without saying that on occasion we are…

Save the Tomato Hornworm!

As an organic gardener, I consider myself a friend of the environment.  Thus, while we all severely dislike those ugly and  voracious Tomato Hornworms, I have started a mini-campaign to ask gardeners to NOT get…

Forgive my ignorance!

I'm new to this site, new to gardening, and not sure where to post questions.  My tomatoes seem to be thriving so far; my squash plants, which were gorgeous and thick with blossoms a couple weeks ago, are fried; the cabbage looks awful, the peppers are shaded by the cabbage, and I didn't plant nearly enough green beans.  They were amazingly good.  Anyway, this is definitely a learning curve for me.  What I would like to know is where can I find out what plants grow well in this region in the…

You want local? How about local money?

The heck with  Federal Reserve Notes. We know who prints them, and the

Gorilla Gardener

Not sure what the definition of Gorilla Gardener is but I view it as a person or group of people to go into an area and put in a garden and leave with little or no people knowing about it. Lol. Sound a bit ridiculous?

Well, in preparation for hard times, there are some good plants that are considered survival foods that take little or no tending to. To name a few: Perslane, Sun Chokes, lambs quarter, cherry tomatoes, onions, garlic, dandelion,Chicory, plantain, clover, sorrel, and…

Milk persecution in Christian County -- please attend the rally!

Last Thursday while delivering milk to our usual drop-off site, my husband was confronted with a public health official from the Christian County Health Department attempting to serve him with papers telling him that the Health Dept will not allow him to bring milk into the County unless he delivers it to each individual person's home. What is the difference between delivering to a person's home, or having people come to one convenient location? The result is the same. The people who are…
