Seed Time!!!!

At least in the deep south. This time of year marks Tue beginning of gardening endeavors. We bought 50 lbs of seed potatoes and are hoping for a better harvest this year. Last year we bought the same amount but too much rain in the spring ended our season. The potatoes still came up but the harvest was pathetic. Our wonderful neighbor, Mr L allowed us to dig from the plentiful harvest that he had. We canned a ton of potatoes and just finished the last jar last week. I was wanting to use the potatoes up, so I tried using the canned potatoes for potato salad. Bet you can't imagine doing that! But I tell you, it turned out pretty good for potato salad in the winter and not at a picnic or barbecue. They were not as good as fresh, but they sure beat store bought. Scared to try canned potatoes and potato salad? Just give it a shot. You will be able to tell the difference but the satisfaction
of using your canned potatoes in something as delicious as potato salad will beat that out every time. So, here we go on a new season of gardening and our first endeavor is always potatoes. We live in an area where the soil is perfect for them. Here goes!

ACV: A Friend With Many Uses

There have been many benefits to ACV touted in the news on the natural front. My most recent discovery in relation to its uses involves urinary symptoms. I wasn't tested at a doctor's office, but let's face it, a girl usually knows what's up when one shows up. I drink about 2-3 tablespoons 2-3 times a day for several days. Just dilute it in water, which helps the issue too, by the way. The pain disappears almost immediately. I keep it up for at least 3-4 days. By then, I think there has been enough time to clear out most of my system. Try it next time-- it's not as bad as you think. Really. Let me know if you do.

Just so ya know, I usually use Bragg's but the store I was in was out of it and I didn't want to go store hoppin' so this is what I ended up with ;)
