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.

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.
