by Texas Homesteader ~ Y’all know I have to have my hands in the dirt. I don’t have any control over it – that’s just something buried into my DNA. But do you wanna know a secret? I don’t really enjoy gardening (I know, REALLY??! gasp!)  But it’s true. I don’t enjoy the planting, weeding, […]

by Tammy Taylor~ I love the concept of edible landscaping. Just because a plant grows something you can eat doesn’t mean it can’t be beautifully incorporated into your landscape plan. I’m fond of adding carrots along the perimeter of my plantings for it’s lacy greenery border. And I love using the bold crinkly leaves of […]

by Tammy Taylor~ This is my first year to plant strawberries, y’all! I’ve included them in my Edible Landscape this year. But I’ve been reading lamentations from other gardeners about the birds stealing those strawberries riiiiiight before harvest time!

by Tammy Taylor~ A popular garden planting strategy often attributed to the native American Indians is the 3-Sisters Garden. This is a garden in which corn, beans and squash were planted. But they were planted for very specific reasons. Each vegetable helped the other. And by helping each other, each vegetable also benefited by growing […]

by Tammy Taylor~ RancherMan was in the mood for something sweet. But I wanted to use only ingredients that I already had in the pantry. Hummm, let’s see. There was an older bag of marshmallows (when did we even buy those??) and a partial box of Rice Krispies cereal. Maybe I can make some Rice […]
