Come on over for dinner! We are having cattails.
Cattails- These plants that line the water’s edge were a staple food in the diet of many Native American tribes. Nearly every piece of a cattail is edible. The brown cattail portion can be harvested in early summer and eaten like corn on the cob.
Boil leaves like spinach, and the white part of the stem base can be eaten raw or boiled. Roots or rhizomes offer a crunch. Munch them raw or boil them. Hmmmmmm yummy...
Let's eat some beautiful and edible Nasturtiums in a salad.Yes, as you can see they are not only pretty but also have a great flavor and a bit sweet and peppery.
I am surprised with the delightful presentation and good taste, that more people don't know just how good they are. What an eye-catching display they make. Try some!
You can do this!
Before Spring has sprung or in the Fall when all has gone dormant, you can prepare your blueberry patch!
Blueberries require little space and are very easy to care for.
So here are a few things you need to do and then you can anxiously wait for spring.
Once upon a time there was this 5'3" woman who could unload and carry numerous 50 pound bags of horse feed into the barn with ease. She could hop up onto the truck and begin throwing off sweet-smelling bales of hay with no sweat. Ahhhh memories. Those were the 10 hour days of work away from home, plus another 4 hours tending barn, family and house chores.
Yes, I can honestly say I miss that Wonder Woman.
I need to plan. I make a list, prioritize and organize.
When it comes to gardening, my brain starts to concentrate on this years garden. What to grow, seed list, money allocated, where to improve, what seeds will I be starting indoors, all these things need to be considered. All this planning will save time and money, and lots of running around at the last minute.
Are you holding your "heirloom" seeds in your hand? Why not?
You haven't a minute to lose.
It is finally time to plant!
Here in north Georgia, the leaves are bursting, the ground is turned, the garden plan is made and the seeds in hand.

Something has been taking place that most are unaware of.
People go about their normal routine and take for granted that there always will be plenty of food lining the grocery store shelves whenever they walk through the doors.
What would you do if you walked into the store one day, only to find that there was nothing on the shelves?
What if there were a national disaster, natural disaster, or food shortage, how would you feed your family?
Sadly, there is no info on this video to the maker's website. (Claire Vasquez) This excellent video explains farming on a smaller piece of land. Today's interest in organic farming is starting a trend of new small scale farmers. This is exciting! I love seeing this trend taking place.
