Seed organization is not that hard, and can save you a lot of money in the long run. Before you go out and buy more seeds, make sure you don’t already have them.

Ever found an old package of seeds lying around, but you weren’t sure if they were still good.

Here is a review/comparison using our whole wheat bread machine recipe (with all-purpose substitute) in a Black and Decker 3 lb loaf machine vs. the oven.

Rhubarb is a great way to add a tangy twist to every day salads. Ever since I discovered that rhubarb is actually a vegetable, an obvious but over looked fact. I’ve been looking for new ways to enjoy this wonderful vegetable. My first discovery was to replace celery in potato salad with finely chopped rhubarb, it was a delicious hit, (recipe to come soon).

The color it adds to any dish is just an added bonus. So that’s today’s recipe a nice tangy spring salad fresh from the garden to your fork. Continue reading
