  • The Gingko tree is an absolute work of the art of nature; from its beautiful shape to its fan-shaped leaves, leaves which change from luminous green to translucent gold. One would be hard-pressed to find a tree of such beauty.
    This lovely tree doesn’t show her age. The “Silver Apricot,” as she is known in China, has an ancient history. The gingko is speculated to have existed during prehistoric times. One tree growing in China is approximately 3500 years old. She was introduced to the U.S. in the 1700’s. Once here she found a loyal following.

  • Winter squash come in many shapes, sizes and colors. They are packed with antioxidants and vitamins. They don’t have any fats and can be prepared sweet or savory. The different varieties of winter squash may be substituted for each other in many recipes. Don’t be afraid to get creative.

  • There are several virus diseases that can affect strawberry.  They occur rarely or infrequently, but transmission via imported cuttings can occur.  This fall, we have seen suspect viruses in planting stock.

  • A number of years ago, a man I know had multiple surgeries on his hand, which left him without feeling in it.
    He had had surgery because of pain, so in one respect, not feeling meant he also no longer felt pain, so that’s a good thing, right?
    However, as a craftsman, that also meant he couldn’t use his hand to do his job, which required using both hands and all his fingers.
