How To Make Corn Nuts

We made our own corn nuts. We used a very simple recipe and tried to use our glass gem corn kernels. We love eating corn nuts as a snack. Next time we are going to try different kernels and bake them.

Here are few other recipes:

Garden Taste Test Challenge

The kids and I love to watch Good Mythical Morning and are inspired by the show. My daughter wanted to do a gardening version of the Will It Challenge that Rhett And Link do on their show. My ultimate goal was to get the picky eaters to try different foods from the garden even for only a moment.

They tried many different herbs, greens, and root vegetables including peppers and tomatillos. It was interesting to see how they reacted to different food items during each round.

WIND IS ESSENTIAL IN THE GARDEN

For plant starts to have the best chance at success you need the 4 main components from mother nature. However their is a 5th element that you might be over looking. You may have great grow lights and the richest of soils, perfect water and the best fertilizer how ever do not over look the 5th piece to the puzzle. WIND.

By providing a gentle breeze over you fresh seedlings you will get them to toughen up and grow a better stem to stand up once they get kicked out into the real world, aka the garden.

This year I learned that all important step by skipping that one step, I have always done it and now I know why I should continue to use a fan. My baby plants need it to give them the best 1st steps to be successful.

Garden Clean Up Equals A Clean Mind ✔︎

With spring around the corner and your garden looking like the aftermath of a toga party from your college days. It may be the time to do a complete make over of your garden just to bring back that natural muse that you had so many years ago after your 1st successful gardening season.

If you have been doing the same thing year in and year out in your allotment then it may be time to really overhaul your veggie setup. I hope that this will inspire someone to break down what they have been doing and get back that feeling they had back when they got the fever known as gardening.

How to improve soil with an easy soil test.

We finally got our soil test sample results back from the state extension office and was baffled by our soil results. I put of a lot of thought into and hard work to improve the garden space I figured that I would get better results or should I say different results. I research the internet to see what all the numbers indicated. I found the video from One Yard Revolution and he broke down the results on his soil sample and it all made sense.

Assuming anything can be a bad thing and you need to know the numbers to make sense of what you have and don’t have. A soil sample from a professional lab is one of the best investments you can make to your garden, plants and yourself.

The old cliche “knowing is half the battle” fits best with this ideology.

Please contact your local extension office and invest your time and get the information about your soil and your plants will thank you for it.

Here is a link to find your local extension office.
