Whole Foods Market claims to be "America's Healthiest Grocery Store." However, Organic Spies recently conducted an undercover hidden camera investigation of Whole Foods that told quite a different story.
I am not a fan of the current trend that extols us to grab a shipping pallet or some cast off boards and use them to make something else. Most of what results still looks like garbage. Who cares if the materials are free?
These chairs by Old & Board satisfy my designer instincts and are made from recycled wood.
It’s that time of year again. Our beautiful wildlife garden is winding down and getting ready for its winter nap. Our long weeks of drought and high 90′s temperatures here in northern Kentucky are already a fading memory. I love the colors and textures of autumn…the sunset colored leaves of yellow-orange-red, the plump pumpkins, striped gourds, and all the delicious tastes and aromas of fall festival foods…hot apple cider, fresh-baked pies, caramel popcorn…

The long vines are prolific bloomers and they produce a large amount of flowers that are beautiful to look at and almost as good to eat as the squash itself.
A couple of weeks ago, we had one night where frost was predicted. It was a bit early and thank goodness, we managed to slip under the radar that night. It was patchy around us, but we have just enough tree cover that afforded us a bit of protection.
At the request of my dear friends and fellow gardeners, Kylee Baumle, of Our Little Acre and Annie Haven of Authentic Haven Brand Natural Brew (Annie produces my favorite natural soil conditioner, Moo Poo Tea), I am happy to share my recipe for...
