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:

Compost Tea

In this episode, I teach the kids how to make their very own compost tea. My kids said to me, ” Daddy I don’t like tea”. In response I said, but do you like to play in the dirt, and they jumped on board. The kids made their very first batch of compost tea. This is easy to do, very inexpensive and a great spring activity to do with the kids.

How To Make Vermicompost

Here is a great video on how to make a worm composter. This is a great do it yourself project to do with your kids. The worm composter is super easy to build and works great. You can even leave it in your house cause the worms eat all the vegetables before start to smell. A pound of worms can eat about a pound of food in a day. The waste can be used directly on your plants. It is the best fertilizer that money can buy. Also the worms tell me that they love bread. Enjoy.

Shutting Down Vegitate ….. For The Season

I haven’t update the website in a long time.  I been keeping up with the garden but let it go since the summer heat was pretty much the death of Vegitate this year.  Half of Vegitate survived and I was able to get a lot of peppers out of the garden along with tomatoes.

I had to protect the the remaining garden back on October 18th, with old covers from the 1st frost making the garden look like Occupy Vegitate.

Occupy Vegitate

Dustin Blakey had posted an article in the efortsmith a while back that said basically due to no spring temps that if you could get them to make it to September they will start to take off and boy did they.

Here is another reason to grow your own vegetables.
