Chive Vinegar…..and the prettiest Spring!

Chive garden 16

It’s that time of year. And we have had such a wonderful spring. We are hoping that we don’t pay for it later this summer but for now it’s heavenly. My garden each year produces my chives. Each year I tell myself to grab those flowers but each spring passes so quickly that I seem to miss that window. Not this year!! There is really nothing to Chive Vinegar (thank goodness). It’s those beautiful chive flowers soaked in White wine vinegar. Let soak for at least two weeks. The color alone will inspire you. It’s just gorgeous. That’s it! My kind of recipe with my hectic schedule.

Bon Appétit!

Healthy reminder on pesticides and fruits and veggies.

This is a great visual reminder when shopping of what really not to eat. Especially when it comes to some surprisingly glorified veggies. Thanks The Food Network Revolution and my friend John for passing this along.

The 12 most pesticide-contaminated foods (Infographic)

Pesticides have been linked to cancer, developmental disabilities, endocrine disruption, and many other serious problems.

This infographic from Juicing with G gives critical information about which are the most, and the least, pesticide contaminated fruits and vegetables.

The garden yummies!



The brussel sprouts are the only plant that is still not producing, though it’s awfully big. The wonky carrots, amazing beets, eggplants, tomatoes and onions are wonderful. Not a bad season. Having no rain for 80 days sure kept the snails away. And the boys FINALLY stayed out of the plant food! Whew. Why fish food for plants seems appetizing to dogs, I’ll never understand. For now, just glad my plants loved it.

Happy Canning everyone.





A film that is a must see in the Genetic altering world…please watch.

A must see if you care about your health, your children’s health and the health of the planet. Watch free for another week.

Thanks Gary for passing along.


We are deeply grateful to Nutiva for their generosity in sponsoring this free showing week.

Why is there so much sickness in America???

During the first free showing week in September, there were over 1.25 million views of this astounding documentary featuring testimony from healthcare practitioners, scientists, veterinarians, parents, and others about the health risks of genetically modified foods, and amazing health recoveries from switching to a non-GMO diet.  The response has been incredible!

In the remaining critical days before the election, the vital information in this documentary is extremely important to voters in California who are facing a barrage of misdirection from the biotech industry to influence their choice on Prop 37 for labeling of GMO food.

This is a film you and your family need to watch and then send to all your family and friends…especially in California.

There is still the opportunity to change course if enough people see this film!
God Bless


Please pass this film around. You can be the change for the future. There are many other great films on the health of our planet. Become aware and become involved.




My Chamomile harvest for 2012

This was the first year that I ever grew my own little patch of chamomile. What a treat and super easy. I only wished I had planted it under my bedroom window as the aroma is just heavenly! The bees love it, the spiders love it and come fall I am going to love it.

Grow a patch even if you just have a big plant pot! Mmmmmmm.

Sweet Dreams!
