I'm very interested in the concept of growing houseplants from seed. There doesn't seem to be much information that is easy to find about it, however. So, I plan to put information I discovered in this thread. I've read that these can be grown from seed: • Adromischus cristatus (Crinkle Lea...read more

https://www.exoticrainforest.com/Epipremnum%20aureum%20pc.html The above website shows pictures of how Golden Pothos leaves look as they mature in the wild. Apparently, they can look a lot different than most of us are probably used to who don't live somewhere tropical. Anyway, take a look! ...read more

List: • Ivy (especially English Ivy; grow seeds, ideally) When we have more room: • Kaffir lime (well, more for a culinary herb than a houseplant, but it would make a good houseplant, I believe) • Wandering Jews • Spider plants

Winco crushed pineapple review

in Pineapple
by Radishrain • | | 0 comments
Winco brand canned crushed pineapple tastes excellent, currently. Perhaps the best on the market. It tastes like Hawaiian pineapple, but it's a product of the Philippines. The ingredients are pineapple, pineapple juice, and citric acid. The citric acid definitely improves the flavor. I love it. ...read more

Great-tasting whole wheat spaghetti with tomato sauce (no meat/dairy)

in Wheat
by Radishrain • | | 1 comment
So, I made some baked spaghetti, today. Here's what I did: I blended up a quart of home-canned stewed tomatoes from 2019 (including all the juice, skin, and seeds), with the following things: the equivalent of one or two bay leaves, a liberal amount of basil, extra virgin olive oil, granulate...read more

At long last, here are some seeds rated for zones 4 through 9, and they're very inexpensive, too! I've never shopped with this vendor (so, I can't say what it's like). http://www.treeseeds.com/white-mulberry-tree-seeds

Is grapefruit really a pomelo-orange hybrid?

in Grapefruit
by Radishrain • | | 0 comments
https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2020/10/201029115836.htm I have my doubts that a sweet orange is a direct parent of grapefruit. Pomelos are not as bitter as grapefruit (they taste like tropical fruit punch, basically). Neither are oranges. Why would they combine into something more bitt...read more

https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2020/10/201029115836.htm Apparently, at least some commercial cypress mulch has been shown that it is not 100% cypress, if there is any cypress in it at all.

Dehydrating limes

in Lime
by Radishrain • | | 2 comments
I'm dehydrating a few bags of small limes (cut into eight slices each; skins, seeds, and all), and some tomatoes, currently. I think they're key limes, but I could be wrong. I plan to see if I can powder them. I wanted to dehydrate the peels separately, but they're very difficult to separate fro...read more

Best if used by date: 4 Feb 2022 Barcode: 078742358857 We got some of this within the last few weeks, from Walmart in the store (I didn't actually go myself and get it). Anyway, it took about 7 minutes to cook, which is nice. It's one and a third cups of macaroni in the box, with a tradit...read more

So, I was thinking today, it's pretty easy to dehydrate and powder leaves. Some leaves have a lot of protein (amaranth leaves, for instance). Seeds can be pretty difficult to harvest, and fruits take longer to dehydrate. So, why not powder lots of leaves? I'm considering powdering our edible ...read more

Harvesting common amaranth seeds

in Common Amaranth
by Radishrain • | | 0 comments
I figured common amaranth would have seeds just like the cultivated grain amaranths, since the plants look so much the same—but no. We harvested some the other day, and the seeds were like tiny black specks. I wasn't expecting them to be so small, neither did I expect them to be black (there's n...read more

What kind of fruit has the most seeds? I don't currently know the answer, nor do I have seed counts, but in general, these fruits have a lot of seeds: • Tomatillos (usually; sometimes they don't) • Muskmelons (I've never met a muskmelon with few seeds. They are reliably seedy, in my exper...read more

So, before I last went to sleep, I commenced dehydrating all our hot peppers, except the ones on the plants that I somehow missed during harvest. There always seem to be a few stragglers.

You probably know that black pepper is a common seasoning to add a little extra flavor, but did you know it has some pretty remarkable traits? 1. If you don't like the taste/smell of cloves, add black pepper! I got some turkey franks (turkey hotdogs) the other day, and they tasted strongly of...read more
