Horehound is a very interesting herb. It's not just like another version of mint in what it does (although it does some of the same things). I recommend studying it. While this article doesn't tell a lot of the things horehound is supposed to be good for, if you're interested in horehound more

This EFY song (from the Here Am I, 2015 album) relates to some things Elder Holland said in his talk in the Saturday afternoon session of General Conference, today: It's He Hears Your Heart, by Bryn Castleton. Anyway, it's one of my favorite EFY songs; EFY more

Note: If you're in the USA and want free seeds for any of my breeding projects, don't hesitate to ask. I would love for you or others to grow them. * Project name: Snacker_ * Status: Almost stable as of the F2, actually (due to so many recessive traits showing up); growing F4s in 2022. The more

Experiments in rooting grapefruit cuttings

in Grapefruit
by Radishrain • | | 1 comment
I've previously tried rooting grapefruit cuttings in water in a windowsill (probably about four times). Each time it failed. The cutting would eventually dry up and die, with no roots, after some weeks. I didn't use hormone-rooting powder, however (but that would dissolve in the water, rather more

in Avocado
by Radishrain • | | 0 comments
Many people know the following about starting an avocado tree from a seed/pit: Stick toothpicks in the side to hold it up in a jar of water. Wait for it to grow. Plant. However, did you know there's a trick to getting the tree to grow straight up and really tall really fast? Basically, more

How to light a nice slow-burning fire

in Substance
by Radishrain • | | 0 comments
My method of making a slow-burning fire that lasts a good long time for the amount of wood is to do this: Place a surface of wood on the bottom. On top, place two pieces of wood parallel to each other with a space between. Put a firestarter there. Place two parallel pieces of wood (with a more

in Substance

So, those no-hassle firestarters (for lighting fires to keep your house warm) are getting expensive, these days (those Strike-a-fire ones). We've been dividing them up into several to make them last longer. Yes, you don't need them to light a fire, but they make the process easier. Within more

Eating more onions at once feels healthy

in Common Onion
by Radishrain • | | 0 comments
I discovered the other day when I ate a whole large onion (I fried it, and then put it on my quesadillas, and fried them) that I felt really good, like eating that much onion was super healthy or something. It was a red onion, if that makes any difference. I've eaten fairly large amounts of more

Roasting garlic in flames

in Garlic
by Radishrain • | | 0 comments
Did you know you can roast garlic directly in the flames of a hot fire? (Such behavior causes marshmallows to burst into flames, or would likely turn hotdogs to charcoal.) I didn't read how to do this online; I wanted to burn the skins off instead of peeling them. Here's how you do it: 1. more

My Christmas cactus moves

in Christmas Cactus
by Radishrain • | | 2 comments
Every once in a while (days to weeks or so), one of my Christmas cactuses moves. When it does, it seems to do it all at once. It starts out flopped on the north side of its pot. Then, it spreads out across the pot nicely, with part of the plant north, part in the center, and part south. Then, more

Dill powder (and dip/spread recipe)

in Dill
by Radishrain • | | 0 comments
I got some organic dill seeds a while ago. I decided I wanted them in powder form to make them easier to use at a moments' notice for a wider variety of purposes. So, I blended them up, and now they look kind of like peat moss, but workable. The freshly blended up seeds smelled like menthol, more
