Organic Pest Control

Your heart falls right out of your chest. Holes, tiny or not so tiny, have been chewed in the leaves of your beloved and pampered plants. Tiny seedlings have been cut off at the base of the stem. Immediately, pictures of the probable culprits pop to mind. They are images of hinged-legged, creepy-crawlers and slimy worm-like menaces with oversized, plant chewing jaws. "It's on," you think.

Gardening Tip of the Day

  • There’s nothing like going into the garden in the middle of December to pull large, luscious parsnips for your holiday dinner. Wash and gently scrub the roots, then briefly steam them to make paring easier. With larger roots, remove the woody core and use only the tender outer flesh.

    To retain the parsnip's delightful, sweet flavor, don’t boil them as the sugar in the roots dissolves in water. Many people ruin the taste of parsnips by cooking them until they’re mushy and bland. The best way to prepare parsnips is to brown the slices in butter or sauté them in a little oil, keeping the heat low to lock in the flavors and avoid scorching the sugar in the flesh. Or simply bake them. If you want a simple side dish for Christmas dinner, steam parsnip slices with fresh peas until tender and serve drenched in melted butter. It’s so delicious, it’s almost decadent!
