Raised Garden I found in Lucas


I found a great raised garden in Lucas while out the other day. I really like how it was made especially the sides to keep the animals out. We are going to try raised beds in the spring.

Why we do not use pesticides in our garden- great photo


We do not use pesticides in our garden for lots of reasons but this photo says a 1000 words- If you do not kill the beneficial bugs they will do all the work. This little spider is carrying a HUGE bug in his mouth. Yesterday while sitting on the porch the same spider was sitting on our pepper plant eating a bright green caterpillar.

Wild Flowers in Organic Garden- Lucas Texas

Photos my son Drew took of some of the organic wild flowers growing in our garden. They are absolutely beautiful. All of the wildflowers were grown from a .10 cent clearance package of seeds- gotta love that! From that package- orange, yellow, white and pink flowers have grown. The funny thing too is that each flower seems to have grown in its own place in the yard- the colors have grown separately if that makes sense?


Cosmos



Ladybird Dwarf Gold- this one is a vibrant orange-yellow, lemony color.


Cosmo Psycho White- really crazy wild flowers that are very fragrant. The cool part of the flowers are the spirly branches and leaves. The name is so fitting of the flower. Will take more photos so you can see it better.



Ladybird Dwarf Orange- There are two colors from these flowers. Some are a vibrant fiery orange and the others are a lighter almost flourescent orange. They smell really nice too.

Best Ways to Organize Coupons

Now that the kids are back in school and I have more time to coupon- in addition to hunting down and listing new organic coupons, I am going to try to write a series of articles about shopping tips and organization. Many of the die-hard coupon clippers already know the basics but with the economy being what it is there are more and more "beginning" coupon clippers. Besides that we can all pick up new ideas as technology and the world evolves.

The first in the series was posted today on the website- How to Organize Organic Coupons.

Best wishes

Amish Market in Gaithersburg

Does not matter how many times I have been there in years past- stopping at the Amish Market is a must do for every trip to Gaithersburg, MD. They have a wonderful market. It has baked goods, candies, fruit, flower, meats, baking goods- the most amazing pretzles and a wonderful restaurant- Yum. I am getting hungry just thinking about it.

The market also has some amazing artists that sell their homemade wares- Amish quilts, potholders, aprons, dolls, wall hangings, tote bags and crayon bags.


Outside the Amish Market-Sign




Farm Fresh Veggies


Freshly picked black berries and strawberries



More fresh veggie and flowers


The selection is awesome and so flavorful.

Home Remedies

I am so proud of my husbands new website Home Remedies I just had to write about it. He just showed it to me.

Randy's new website http://www.homeremediesfor.net/ has some really good articles about the use of natural/alternative remedies that most people can make in their own kitchen to help alleviate minor problems. The website does not advocate that people should not seek medical attention, just that many times there are some relatively inexpensive natural solutions that could be explored. With this economy, and the rising costs of health care-we could all use some inexpensive solutions. Right?

Besides the cost of prescription medication- my big concern is always the side effects of the medications. Sometimes the side effects for me are far worse than the condition that they were prescribed for. I have a tremor and am under the care of a neurologist. The tremor is a nuisance but does not prohibit me from physically doing anything. I tried a few different medications that make me so tired I cannot function. The tremor stops...sure but that's only because I am sleeping 22 hours a day....LOL Even my physician said that in my case the medication side effects were worse then the condition.

Again, something that should be part of the discussion between you and your physician. Never stop taking a prescription drug without talking to your Dr. first. (I always ask my dr. about the home remedies/vitamins I want to try just to be sure they will not react with any of the prescriptions I am already taking.) Some medications you have to be weened off slowly or they can cause some very serious problems. I have a "funny" story about my mother doing that...its a story for another day.

Be healthy

Organic Food Photos from Farmers Market in DC

On a recent trip to DC to visit my sister we went to several farmers markets. These are the photos I took of some of the organic fruits and veggies. I will post the rest of the photos this week. I could have eaten my way from one end of the farmers market to the other.


Beautiful tomatoes they were really a deep red and green color.


Amazing mushrooms they were huge!


The beans were my favorite- fresh and flavorful!

Why does produce have PLU codes?

While shopping at sprouts farmers market the other day I noticed that in the bin of organic apples had different codes on apples. Why they were mixed in the same bin was an easier question to answer, a little boy shopping in front of me with his mom was helping her to "shop". He was picking up all kinds of goodies that were not necessarily on her list so they were getting put back.

It made me think was I really buying the fruit and veggies that I thought I was? Does this child shop in front of me often?

So I looked at the stickers to confirm the sticker on the fruit was the sticker on the price tag at the bottom of the bin. I was surprised to see that the sticker had little to do with the pricing and more to do with the identification of the produce. Come to find out the "sticker" has a code called a PLU code. The PLU code identifies how the fruit was grown, conventional, organic or the devil produce GMO.

Read my entire article about PLU codes on organic produce. It was really interesting to see what information is able to fit onto that little sticker and why it is so important that we all know how to read it.

Organic Bagels Oh My


Today dad came over and we all made homemade bagels. Not only was it a ton of fun, but boy do they taste fantastic. You have to follow the steps or they do not come out right, a few did not rise up as much as we wanted and one or two got burnt on the bottom. But they are so good especially warm right out of the oven.
We learned a few things that we would have done differently next time and I'll share all that when I get the full recipe up onto Organic Food Coupons next week.
Dad is an "old" not in age but experience Italian cook so he had some great tips that you will never find in a book. Will try to have the full recipe up soon.


After Rising


Bagels boil for a few minutes to get that nice crust.
