Re: Eco and Sustainable Shopping

We have the best luck at the used clothing/consignment stores where I spend $3 - $20 on designer pieces. My daughter draws the line at used sportswear but when I can find barely used Athleta for $10, I'm fine with it :) I wish that these were all made in America and workers made a decent wage but I ...

Nightshade family: tomatoes, eggplant, potatoes, peppers are susceptible to the same diseases like blight, and the spores will survive in the soil for 3 to 4 years.

Re: Growing one's own greens (and other foods) :)

I am a master gardener and plant an organic vegetable garden each spring in 4 raised beds. Each bed is 5' x 11' which means I can sit on the edge and reach half-way from the narrow side so there is never compaction from walking on it. Weeds are easily removed in loose soil and seeds can be planted m...

Hello - I'm 4/4

I am a 57yo female that received the dreaded 4/4 status from 23&me on April Fools day. Not funny! My maternal grandmother had dementia for a decade before passing at 78. My mom showed signs at 69 and passed a week before she turned 78. My dad died at 74 of Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma. He has a younge...
