June in the Garden - 2013

Make them Last

When every penny in the budget counts, there's no room for wasting food. Yet, American families throw away almost 500 pounds per year of produce that's gone bad. That's about 14% of all the food they buy, and costs each family about $600.00 per year. Added up, that means as a nation, we toss out almost $43 billion dollars of brown bananas, moldy peaches, wilted spinach, and a soupy substance that used to be lettuce every year. Interestingly, the answer to this problem lies in chemistry. No, not more preservatives; the natural chemistry of plants holds the key to cutting down on food waste.

Making Your Own Display of Color

A flower garden, dangling like a colorful jeweled earring from the eave of your home. Yes, a hanging floral bouquet, the Hanging Basket--filled full to the brim with flowers and plants from the season, whether that is spring, summer or fall.

Things you may need
  • Flowers
  • Hanging basket/container
  • Potting soil
  • Slow-release fertilizer
  • Hand trowel or gloves (or just get your hands dirty!)

Tomatoes and Onions
and Cukes, Oh My!

You love growing your own produce; it's healthier, you save money, and it's fun! But, as any gardener knows, you always end up with way too much come harvest time. Even the healthiest eating family tires of zucchini pancakes, zucchini fritters, zucchini parmesan and more when it's served every day of the week. So, what do you do with all those extras? There are several things you can do to use up all those delicious fruits and veggies, which is great news, because nothing is better than growing your own!
