    Easy to make concrete bowls and planters

    http://www.instructables.com/id/Easy...ters/?ALLSTEPS

    If you have priced pot and planters for you patio or deck you know they can be pricey. WUVIE over on instructables shows how to make your own out of concrete in a variety of styles, sizes and shapes. I love what they did with the bowling ball.

    ...


    After seeing Wuvie's instructable:http://www.instructables.com/id/Easy...-and-planters/, I knew I had to do this. So, having all the available tools and materials on hand, I proceeded to make a functional planter using a plastic bowl and a bowling ball as molds. Having made several instructables that utilize concrete, I will refer you to those sites:http://www.instructables.com/id/Make...With-Concrete/, for example and, of course Wuvie's excellent instructable, listed above.

    How to Do a Quick Germination Test at Home

    Do you have seeds that were given to you or left over from last year that you would like to use his year but you’re not sure if they are still good or not? Well Homegrown has a way to test them to check and see if they are still viable or not. Why waste time if they aren’t or is you need to plant 3 instead on 1 seed. This is a neat little tip to help all of us as seed sowing times comes.

    http://www.homegrown.org/profiles/bl...ck-germination

    1.Use a double thick paper towel. Moisten with water and fold in half.

    2.Open paper towel and place a minimum of 10 seeds on one side of towel.

    3.Fold paper towel over covering seeds completely.

    4.Place paper towel in plastic bag, or on plate covered with plastic. It is ok to roll or fold paper towel to fit if necessary. Do not air seal bag shut as you need some air for healthy germination.

    5.Put bag in a warm spot (for example, on top of your fridge).

    6.Check daily to make sure towel does not dry out.

    7.Most seeds will germinate within 3-10 days. Some flowers and herbs may take longer and have special germination requirements. There is a great deal of specific germination info listed online - do a simple Google search for “germination requirements for ___”

    8.Check seeds every few days, and monitor seed quality and germination rate. Healthy seeds have uniform germination and will not have any fungal or bacterial growth on outside of seed coat.

    9.If your germination rate is less than 60%, consider buying new seeds or sowing your seeds extra thickly to compensate for the low germination rate.

    Friday, February 22, 2013 - 4:25pm

    BATON ROUGE, LA (NBC33) — You've seen them in body shops, drug stores and especially in bath tubs or showers all across the country. Where do those coarse stringy sponges really come from?

    "They are so surprised though because they think all these sponges come out of the sea," says Celeste.

    That’s right, the loufa sponge, it’s a common misconception is that they come out of the ocean, well the truth is, you can grow them right in your backyard.

    "Once you get them planted and they take root you don't have to worry that's it they just grow and grow and grow," says Celeste.

    Celeste started growing loufas over ten years ago and now; it’s more than just a hobby. "When I grow them I give them to so many people. I don't give everyone a whole one. What I do is I cut it in half so I can give to two people and I'll cut the end off and you can use that as an exfoliate for there face."

    The loufa plant is classified as a fruit, but looks like a vegetable and actually and grows on a vine. “My fence it goes 3 yards long and this was only 2 plants and it covered the 3 fences and then was growing up my fig tree."

    And before this fruit is peeled and used as loufa sponge you can actually eat it.

    "You can eat this when it is very young, they say it's like zucchini and okra," says Celeste.

    To make the loufa sponge all you do is plant the seeds, wait, then peel and clean them.

    "I love to do it and it's fun and when they are really dry you can shake them and you can hear the seeds loose inside. You would just beat it and the seeds come out."

    And now loufa season has come to an end but Celeste still has a few hanging on before the last freeze.

    "I like to pick them when they are light yellow and you can see all the seeds that are in here, after its dry then you shake them out, says Celeste. “I have some that have dark spots and I ill put them in light soapy bleach and it takes the stains out and of course you can’t use those seeds."

    And Celeste says just dry them out after each use, and you'll never have to say good bye.

    "They last forever as long as you take care of them."

    Celeste will start planting here seeds now so she will have loufas to give away all summer.

    Cilantro


    There’s nothing I like more than learning about inexpensive, common herbs or spices that exhibit unusual healing properties. Historically, the use of herbs and spices in cooking evolved as a method to preserve foods and make them safer to store and eat. We’ve grown accustomed to using these items to enhance or accentuate the flavors of food, but researchers continue to discover herbs have much more to offer than just good taste. Cilantro is such an herb and one of its medicinal benefits was uncovered through the work of Dr. Yoshiaki Omura.

    Dr. Omura treated several patients for an eye infection called trachoma (granular conjunctivitis), which is caused by the micro-organism Chlamydia trachomatis. Following the standard treatment, Dr. Omura found that the patients’ symptoms would initially clear up, only to recur within a few months. He experienced similar difficulties in treating viral-related problems like herpes simplex types I & II and cytomegalovirus infections.

    After taking a closer look, Dr. Omura found these organisms seemed to hide and flourish in areas of the body where there were concentrations of heavy metals like mercury, lead, and aluminum. Somehow the organisms were able to use the toxic metals to protect themselves from the medicine. While he was testing for these toxic metals, Dr. Omura discovered that the leaves of the coriander plant (cilantro) could accelerate the excretion of mercury, lead, and aluminum from the body.

    This came about accidentally when he noticed that mercury levels in urine increased after an individual consumed Vietnamese soup. The healthy soup contained coriander, or, as it is better known in this country, cilantro. And when cilantro was used concurrently with natural antiviral or antibiotic agents and/or omega-3 fatty acids, the infections could be eliminated for good.

    Dr. Omura’s discovery resulted in a novel technique, which greatly increased the body’s ability to clear up recurring infections, both viral and bacterial. By chance, he also discovered an inexpensive, easy way to remove — or chelate — toxic metals from the nervous system and body tissues. Chelation therapy using chemical agents like EDTA has long been used to help remove heavy metals, but cilantro is the only natural substance I’m aware of that has demonstrated this ability.

    I highly recommend you take advantage of this “poor man’s chelation treatment.” All it takes is adding a quantity of cilantro to your diet daily, for two or three weeks. You can add a handful of fresh cilantro to a salad, mix a couple of teaspoons of cilantro pesto with whole wheat pasta, spread the pesto on toasted Italian bread, or have it with your favorite fish (good in soups). Any of these dishes will give you the dosages Dr. Omura used in his research.

    2) Cilantro Chelation Pesto

    Heavy metal poisoning is rampant. It is a major cause of hormonal imbalances, cancer, thyroid problems, neurological disturbances, learning problems, depression, food allergies, parasites, etc. etc. This is a great recipe that is not only easy to make but also really yummy, and it tells you how to remove heavy metals from the body!

    Cilantro is truly a healing food. One friend suffering from high blood pressure due to mercury poisoning had her blood pressure return to normal after eating two teaspoons of this pesto daily for only a week. So whether you need to detoxify heavy metals from your body or just wish to use it as a preventative measure, 2 teaspoons a day is all you need to take. This pesto has now become a regular in my diet. Enjoy!

    Cilantro Chelation Pesto

    4 cloves garlic
    1/3 cup Brazil nuts (selenium)
    1/3 cup sunflower seeds (cysteine)
    1/3 cup pumpkin seeds (zinc, magnesium)
    2 cups packed fresh cilantro (coriander, Chinese parsley) (vitamin A)
    2/3 cup flaxseed oil
    4 tablespoons lemon juice (vitamin C)
    2 tsp dulse powder
    Sea salt to taste

    Process the cilantro and flaxseed oil in a blender until the coriander is chopped. Add the garlic, nuts and seeds, dulse and lemon juice and mix until the mixture is finely blended into a paste. Add a pinch to sea salt to taste and blend again. Store in dark glass jars if possible. It freezes well, so purchase cilantro in season and fill enough jars to last through the year
    .

    Cilantro has been proven to chelate toxic metals from our bodies in a relatively short period of time. Combined with the benefits of the other ingredients, this recipe is a powerful tissue cleanser.

    Two teaspoons of this pesto daily for three weeks is purportedly enough to increase the urinary excretion of mercury, lead, and aluminum, thus effectively removing these toxic metals from our bodies. We can consider doing this cleanse for three weeks at least once a year. The pesto is delicious on toast, baked potatoes, and pasta.

    Cilantro Pesto
    ■1 – 2 garlic cloves
    ■add raw pine nuts or raw sunflowers seeds
    ■1 cup packed fresh cilantro leaves
    ■some fresh parsley (optional)
    ■1 jalapeno pepper or chili pepper/powder
    ■2 tablespoons lemon or lime juice
    ■6 tablespoons olive oil (1st press, cold press, extra virgin)
    ■1/4 cumin
    ■sea salt & ground pepper to taste

    Put the cilantro and olive oil in blender and process until the cilantro is chopped. Add the rest of the ingredients and process to a lumpy paste. (You may need to add a touch of hot water and scrape the sides of the blender.) It freezes well, so you can make several batches at once.
    Can you imagine eating and detoxing? Yes by adding cilantro to your foods that’s exactly what happens!

    Cilantro Blend — Coriander/Yellow Dock Tincture

    Excerpt from The Botanical Review — a technical bulletin published by:
    The Institute of Quantum & Molecular Medicine:

    Since Roman times cilantro has been used as food and medicine. A recent study by Dr. Yoshiaki Omura from the Heart Disease Research Foundation, New York, NY, USA (Acupuncture Electrotherapy Res. 96; 21 (2) 133-60 and Acupunct Eletrother Res. 1995 Aug-Dec. 20 (3-4) : 195-229 has discovered that the herb cilantro will detoxify mercury from neural tissue*., is used to help stimulate the appetite and relieves minor digestive irritation.This is a remarkable discovery. It is a novel technique, which greatly increased our ability to clear up recurring infections, both viral and bacterial. Bioactive Cilantro blend is an inexpensive, easy way to remove (or chelate) toxic metals from the nervous system and body tissues. Cilantro blend contains yellow dock to help drain the mercury from the connective tissues. It is an excellent blood cleanser, tonic, and builder, working through increasing the ability of the liver and related organs to strain and purify the blood and lymph system. Achieves it’s tonic properties through the astringent purification of the blood supply to the glands and acts as a cleansing herb for the lymphatic system.

    Do dental amalgam fillings contain toxic material?

    Systemic Effects:

    Neurological: Frequent or chronic headaches, dizziness, ringing or noises in the ears, fine tremors (hands, feet, lips, eyelids, and tongue).

    Immunological: Allergies, rhinitis (inflammation of the nose), sinusitis, asthma, lymphaddenopathy (especially cervical or neck).

    Endocrine: Subnormal temperatures, cold, clammy skin, especially hands and feet, excessive perspiration.

    Other: Muscle weakness, fatigue, hypoxia (lack of oxygen), anorexia, joint pains, anemia, Edema (swelling), loss of weight.

    Severe Cases: Hallucinations, manic depression.

    Cilantro’s postulated mechanism of action is to act as a reducing agent changing the charge on the intracellular mercury to a neutral state allowing mercury to diffuse down it’s concentration gradient into connective tissue. This is called connective tissue mercury toxicity. The next step is to remove the mercury from the connective tissue. Mercury is preferentially attracted to the cell wall of the unicellular organism chorella. It can also be bound to sulfhydryl groups in garlic or to sulfur in the form of MSM. To get the mercury out, a cleansing of the liver, intestines, kidneys and lymph should be done. The clinical goal is to convert mercury into a state enabling it to be removed from the cells and be eliminated from the brain, connective tissues, lymph system, liver, gastrointestinal tract, and kidneys.

    Good News For Amalgam Sufferers:

    Chelation therapy using chemicals like EDTA has long been used to help remove these heavy metals, but cilantro is a natural substance that is good news for people suffering from the ill effects of amalgam dental fillings.

    Dr. Omura recently performed another study in which three amalgams were removed from an individual using all of the precautions available to prevent absorption of the mercury from the amalgam. Even with strong air and water suctioning, water rinses, and a rubber dental dam, significant amounts of mercury were later found in the individual’s lungs, kidneys, endocrine organs, liver and heart. No mercury was detected in these tissues prior to the date of removal.

    The active components in cilantro are fragile, and processing by heat will destroy the chelating agents. It is therefore recommended that it be taken in a liquid botanical preparation or raw, to get the most out of this remarkable herb.

    Indications and Usage:

    Metal toxicity, mercury amalgam toxicity, immune disorders, premature aging, cardiovascular disease, allergies, Alzheimer’s, gastrointestinal disorders, psychological disorders, asthma, cancer, chronic fatigue, endocrine disorders and gingivitis.

    ************************************************** **

    Cilantro is featured in dishes cooked everywhere from Spain to Mexico, the Middle East to the South America. The fresh leafs are often sprinkled over the tops of dishes, and the root is used in Thailand to give that distinctly powerful flavor to local dishes. You may already know that cilantro is one of the main ingredients in the salsa at your favorite Mexican restaurant.

    Cilantro, also known as coriander, has a distinct aroma due to its concentrated essential oils. This captivating aroma may have been responsible for humans around the world intuitively incorporating cilantro into their diets for health reasons that modern science is just beginning to understand.

    The History of Organic Cilantro

    While it’s difficult to prove where exactly this powerful herb may have originated, experts suggest that this valuable plant hails from the Near East or southern Europe due to the fact that these regions contain large amounts of the herb growing in the wild. Archeologists have also found remnants of cilantro cultivation in the tombs of the ancient Egyptians, including that of the famous King Tutankhamen.

    Cilantro was also cultivated in ancient Greece; the leaves being used for foods, and the robust essential oil being used for perfume-making. The Romans then introduced the herb to what is now modern day England during medieval times, where it was used to mask the smells of rotten meat. From Europe, the British brought cilantro to the North American colonies in 1670, and it has been a popular staple in the Americas ever since.

    The Health Benefits of Cilantro

    The rich qualities of cilantro oil have a powerfully positive effect on our inner digestive tract. The oils aid our digestive system in its production of digestive enzymes, acids and juices. The oil also helps to stimulate digestion through peristaltic motion.

    The known benefits of cilantro are extensive, and researchers are discovering more every day. Currently, there are several well-known, well-documented benefits of organic cilantro, including:

    List of Cilantro Benefits:
    ■Powerful anti-inflammatory capacities that may help symptoms of arthritis
    ■Protective agents against bacterial infection from Salmonella in food products
    ■Acts to increase HDL cholesterol (the good kind), and reduces LDL cholesterol (the bad kind)
    ■Relief for stomach gas, prevention of flatulence and an overall digestive aid
    ■Wards off urinary tract infections
    ■Helps reduce feelings of nausea
    ■Eases hormonal mood swings associated with menstruation
    ■Has been shown to reduce menstrual cramping.
    ■Adds fiber to the digestive tract
    ■A source of iron, magnesium, and is helpful in fighting anemia
    ■Gives relief for diarrhea, especially if caused by microbial or fungal infections
    ■Helps promote healthy liver function.
    ■Reduces minor swelling
    ■Strong general antioxidant properties
    ■Disinfects and helps detoxify the body
    ■Stimulates the endocrine glands
    ■Helps with insulin secretion and lowers blood sugar
    ■Acts as a natural anti-septic and anti-fungal agent for skin disorders like fungal infections and eczema
    ■Contains immune-boosting properties
    ■Acts as an expectorant
    ■Helps ease conjunctivitis, as well as eye-aging, macular degeneration, and other stressors on the eyes.

    James A. Duke, Ph.D., a former botanist at the U.S. Department of Agriculture, and author of The CRC Handbook of Medicinal Herbs, states that cilantro has been shown to settle the stomach. He recommends drinking a cup of the tea made from a handful of the leaves, when experiencing any form of stomach discomfort.4

    Natural Compounds in Organic Cilantro

    Cineole and linoleic acid are two primary components of organic cilantro that contain anti-rheumatic and anti-arthritic properties. These two components also help purge extra water present in the body due to swelling. Cilantro also contains oleic acid, palmitic acid, stearic acid and ascorbic acid (vitamin C). Each of these elements are effective in lowering high cholesterol in the blood, as well as the internal walls of the veins and arteries.

    Borneol and Linalool, other components of cilantro, work to cleanse the liver and reduce diarrhea. As well as Cineole, Limonene, Alpha-pinene & beta-phelandrene. Each of which contains anti-bacterial properties. The Citronelol component is a well-known natural antiseptic, helping to reduce bad-breath, heal mouth-wounds and prevent oral ulcers. It also contains high amounts of vitamin-A, and important minerals like phosphorus.

    The best known chemical found in cilantro is a substance called Dodecenal. In a recent study led by Isao Kubo, Ph.D at the University of Berkeley, laboratory tests have shown that this component of cilantro is two times as potent as the commonly-used allopathic antibiotic medicine, gentamicin. This is the same antibiotic used to kill Salmonella, a potentially deadly food-born disease. Researchers believe that cilantro is the only natural antibacterial agent that is more effective than gentamicin. These same researchers are even looking into using organic cilantro oil as a way to eradicate the ever-growing problem of allopathic antibiotic resistance.5

    The Cultivation of Organic Cilantro

    Cilantro, or Coriandrum sativum, is from the Apiaceae family, and is an annual herb. Organic Cilantro is grown without the use of chemical pesticides, fertilizers and with a clean water source. This soft plant normally grows to about 50 centimeters tall. The fresh, raw leaves and seeds are used medicinally and as a cooking herb, although the entire plant, including the root, is edible. It is easy to grow cilantro in an indoor herb garden, or in a pot or herb garden outside. To best grow cilantro, plant it in an area that will receive full sun. The soil should be kept well-drained but constantly moist.

    Side Effects or Contraindications of Organic Cilantro

    While many sources state that cilantro has little to no adverse side effects, there are some sources that warn that cilantro leaf should not be used during pregnancy, as it may lead to an increase chance of miscarriage in mothers, or may reduce chances of conception in women trying to become pregnant. If you are pregnant or breast-feeding, please consult with your health care provider before consuming cilantro in any form.

    How to make a Worm Tower



    A lot of folk use a worm bin or worm composter. Some are outdoors others are in basements and garages. Where ever you may keep it composting is a win win for a gardener.

    Composting is a great way to use your kitchen scraps and other compostables and turn them into organic compost to put on your garden.

    Compost is full of nutrients growing plants need. All growing plants do better with compost from flowers to veggies. I saw this tutorial for a worm tower and I really like this one because it is right in the garden instead of a bin somewhere.

    You put the tower in the soil of the garden and feed your compost worms and they eat the scraps and your garden gets all the benefits from it without having to lug the compost from the bin to the garden.

    Its a neat idea.
