Even though we have experienced above average weather temperature here in North Carolina this month, leaves are tumbling down as they gradually reach their peak expression of fall colors.

We look forward to collecting leaves for our winter compost bins and mulch for our garden beds wher...

For the rest of us, take heed if you want to grow food all winter.

It has long since been a goal of mine to be in sync with nature as I learned to grow my ow...

This article is the first of a series that will be about the 5w’s of “black to nature”. We will discuss issues and activities that are necessary to make a transition…, “back to nature”…while being black. Because there has been so much written and media film about living in the country and growing your own food, it will be easy for you to get an idea of who, what, where, when, why and how to do it.

We spend years trying to develop just the right relationship with the tomato. 

They come in hundreds of varieties, various sizes, shapes and flavors.

We like them raw, cooked, canned, dried and fried. We put them on pizza, pasta, salads, soup and stews. What is it about a tomato that makes it so appealing?

Lycopene, (which is said to increase when tomatoes are cooked), is the medicinal property that reduces the chances of heart a...
