Then! As fate would have it, our friend Tara Dudley from Plant Life Designs (you know Tara) shares an image of their earrings and plugs their open house on November 10th. Now you know I’m obligated to share this local, homemade goodness with you.

Simple Tomato Soup Recipe and a Chipotle Clothing Contest

Simple Tomato Soup Recipe and a Chipotle Clothing Contest | Annie Haven | Haven Brand | Scoop.it
Perhaps simple food needs to be redefined. Simple food should be fresh, with only a few ingredients, and easy to prepare or healthy to eat. I once joined a cooking class and the chef taught us how to make this challenging tomato soup.
Haven Brand | Manure Tea's insight:

Happily I have good news – restaurants are picking up on the same concept of simple, healthy, environmentally friendly food. I have always been a fan of Chipotle, for instance, because they work to bring fresh ingredients with respect for the animals, the environment, and the farmers that grow the food to their public.

Sorry, Shoppers: You Can’t Trust Food Labels

Sorry, Shoppers: You Can’t Trust Food Labels | Annie Haven | Haven Brand | Scoop.it
Haven Brand | Manure Tea's insight:

Where is food fraud most likely to occur? According to ABC News, liquids and spices are the most likely to be adulterated. For example, olive oil is often diluted with inferior oils. In other instances, tea bags have been found to contain lawn grass or fern leaves, while pantry items like paprika and saffron were tainted by dangerous food colorings.

Burt's Eye View: Stuck in Malibu

Burt's Eye View: Stuck in Malibu | Annie Haven | Haven Brand | Scoop.it
What then is preventing me from seeing the world? I am not in prison. I can simply get in my car and drive off. And LAX is only an hour away. The answer in one word is—MALIBU.
Haven Brand | Manure Tea's insight:

When I moved here a year ago, I was excited by the prospect of exploring new territories.

During the first 69 years of my life I had pretty much explored a good chunk of the East Coast from the lakes and beaches of Maine to the Florida Keys (not nearly as poetic as Woody Guthrie’s from the redwood forests to the Gulf stream waters). I had traveled to Europe several times, went on safari in South Africa, visited Israel, and even lounged on the beaches of the Seychelle Islands.

Q&A with Amy Stewart

Talking botany and booze with author Amy Stewart.

 

Juniper has gin. Barley makes beer. Behind every bottle of booze you’ll find a bevy of botanicals, and fusing the drinks world and plant kingdom into one is botanist, cocktail enthusiast and author Amy Stewart. In her latest release The Drunken Botanist (featured in our January/February 2013 issue) Stewart explores the mysterious and intertwining plant-drink connection through flavorful history lessons, anecdotes and recipes. Here, she chats with us about the crossover between the cocktail and plant communities, why we drink plants in the first place, and the best botanicals for growing your own cocktail garden.

Eight Easy-To-Grow Edible Flowers

Eight Easy-To-Grow Edible Flowers | Annie Haven | Haven Brand | Scoop.it
Wake up your taste buds with these eight flavorful flowers that taste as good as they look. Rose photo copyright Isabel Gomes.
Haven Brand | Manure Tea's insight:

Borage, (Borago officinalis): This annual grows 2 to 4 feet tall with purplish blue, star-shaped flowers that “make the mind glad,” according to renowned 16-century herbalist John Gerarde. Sow seeds in a sunny spot after the last frost, or earlier in warm climates. Borage tolerates most soil types and usually reseeds itself. Transplanting isn’t recommended due to the taproot.

The Rainforest Garden: Beautiful Edible Gardens for Any Situation

The Rainforest Garden: Beautiful Edible Gardens for Any Situation | Annie Haven | Haven Brand | Scoop.it

Repeat after me: "No backyard is too dry, wet, or shady to grow my own food." I'm going to take that statement a step further and say that you can make it so attractive that neighbors will have no idea that those beautiful plantings are edible too! To show you just how 'ornamental' you can make your edible garden, I'm sharing some photos from my latest trip to Trad's Garden Center here in Jacksonville.

Haven Brand | Manure Tea's insight:
Edibles for Everyone When I tell strangers that I'm a gardener, they usually say something along the lines of "Oh, you grow tomatoes?" or "What kind of food do you grow?" forcing me to backtrack and clarify. I used to regretfully tell them that I couldn't grow that many herbs and vegetables because I garden for a hot and sandy apartment complex with no irrigation to speak of. To make things more difficult, I also have to grow plants that are attractive and uniform enough to 'work' for a business landscape.
