Fruits and Vegetables Are Getting Less Nutritious
Care2.com
Recent research on fruits, vegetables and staple crops such as wheat and
corn shows that, over time, our food has gotten less and less nutritious.
The vitamin and mineral content in our foods has been steadily declining
over several decades.

Q&A: Japanese Red Maple

Question: My Japanese Red Maple is 12 years old and for the first time this year it only has leaves on 1/3 of the tree. All the other branches appear to be dead. The leaves are on the side of the tree closest to our house. There does not appear to be any animal damage on the trunk. What caused this? Will my tree live? Should I cut off the dead branches? Thank you.

Answer: If the tree is only leafing out on the protected side, the side closest to the house, it sounds like winter damage. Cold winds or ice can kill back branches, or at least retard their growth. Try scraping the bark on the affected branches. If you find green tissue beneath the bark, the branch is still alive and there’s still hope. If the tissue beneath the bark is brown, that part of the branch is dead and you can safely cut it off. With any luck there will be live material somewhere on those seemingly dead branches. If so, they will eventually leaf out. If not, the entire branch should be pruned away. As long as the roots and the rest of the tree is healthy it will send out new sprouts and you can train those sprouts into new branches. Let’s hope for the best!

Q&A: Edible Flowers

Question: Can you give me a list of edible flowers, what parts of the plant are edible (and what parts to avoid), and any other tips?

Answer: First of all, do not eat flowers if you have asthma, allergies, or hay fever. And eat only those that have been grown organically and have no pesticide residue. Collect flowers for eating in the cooler parts of the day — preferably early morning after the dew has evaporated. Choose flowers that are at their peak, avoiding those that are not fully open or are starting to wilt. Immediately before using, wash the flowers, checking for bugs and dirt. Remove the stamens and styles from flowers before eating — the pollen can detract from the flavor and some people are allergic to it. As far as what parts to on which flowers: You can eat the entire flowers of Johnny-jump-up, violet, runner bean, honeysuckle, and clover. Remove the sepals of all flowers except violas, Johnny-jump-ups, and pansies. Eat only the petals of rose, calendula, tulip, chrysanthemum, yucca, and lavender. Roses, dianthus, English daisies, Signet marigolds, and chrysanthemums have a bitter white portion at the base of the petal where it was attached to the flower; remove this portion before using. Dandelion leaves are delicious in salads or cooked as a green. The flowers are edible when young; they become bitter with age. Remove dandelions’ sepals — they are bitter. You can also eat both the flowers and the leaves of nasturtiums.

Q&A: Comparing Greenhouse Glazing

Question: I am planning to buy a hobby greenhouse kit, about 8’x12′ for seed starting, bulb forcing, rooting cuttings and overwintering a few tender plants. I’m in Zone 6. I’d like a comparison of some of the glazing options. I’ve ruled out plastic film (I want something more permanent and attractive), and glass (I need better insulation). On the market, I’m finding twin wall polycarbonate at 4.5mm, 6mm and 8mm, corrugated polycarbonate, among others. The various companies make a variety of claims about insulation, light transmission, condennsation control and durability. Can you help me sort it out?

Answer: Basically, it’s a matter of cost vs. benefits. You need to isolate the main requirements to meet your needs and work through a hierarchy that way. In your case, to overwinter tender plants in zone 6 will take a lot of heat so insulation value in relation to your heating costs may be the determining factor. After that, look at the other benefits — if the structure is visible from the street you may want to reduce condensation, if the structure may need strength to combat heavy snowfall then that may be a consideration. Longevity may also be important to you if this is a major construction project and/or your budget is tight. You might want to talk to some greenhouse owners in your area and find out what their experiences are; you might also be able to see some of the materials in action — they don’t all have the same “look”. Finally, regardless of the material you use, keep in mind that every individual greenhouse has its own individual “quirks” that you’ll discover them over time so you just make the best choice you can and then work with the results. Since I don’t know your specific requirements (and I’m not you) I can’t begin to tell you which one in my opinion would be best in your situation — they all have pluses and minuses one way or another as you have already realized!

Tip: Care for Your Easter Lily

Once your Easter lily blossoms fade, get ready to plant it outdoors. Although not reliably hardy outdoors in the Midwest, if you keep it healthy until frost has passed and put it in a sunny spot in the garden with some protection, you may get it to rebloom next year.

Ha Long Bay, Cat Ba Island, Vietnam Travel Video Guide

Uploaded by on You Tube

Heritage listed Ha Long Bay is a major tourist attraction in Vietnam, and rightly so. The bay is home to over a thousand jungle clad limestone pillars, several of which are hollow and contain enormous caves. I next visit Cat Ba Island, the largest island in the bay. Half of Cat ba is National Park. I interview Tuan, a local cafe owner. He takes me for a tour of the island and we also visit a floating village, where people farm fish in small enclosures.

Vịnh Hạ Long, đảo Cát Bà, Du lịch Việt Nam Video Hướng dẫn

Di sản được liệt kê Vịnh Hạ Long là một điểm thu hút du lịch lớn ở Việt Nam, và đúng như vậy. Bay là hơn một ngàn trụ cột rừng đá vôi phủ, một số trong đó đều trống rỗng và chứa các hang động khổng lồ. Tôi tới thăm đảo Cát Bà, hòn đảo lớn nhất trong vịnh. Một nửa của ba Cát là Vườn quốc gia. Tôi phỏng vấn Tuấn, một chủ quán cà phê địa phương. Ông đưa cho tôi một tour du lịch của hòn đảo và chúng tôi cũng ghé thăm một ngôi làng nổi, nơi mọi người có trang trại nuôi cá trong các thùng nhỏ.

Q&A: Gardening near Walnut Tree

Question: If I plant a vegetable garden near a walnut tree, will it affect my vegetables performance? The garden is not under the tree but a few of the leaves and walnuts land at the edge of the garden.

Answer: It’s a good question because walnut tree leaves and bark do contain compounds that can impede the growth of some other plants. My sense of it is this: If you new vege garden is not inundated with leaves and nuts, it’s probably fine. Right around the base of the tree is clearly another matter, but if you well beyond the outermost branches I do not forsee a problem. Beyond the growth inhibiting compounds in walnuts, shade and root competition from any kind of tree is also a factor. If your new garden area is not overwhelmed by walnut roots, and if the trees branches do not shade the new garden area, you’ll be okay. My advice is to go ahead and develop your new garden area. With the above factors in mind, if growth does not meet your expectations, you’ll have some culprits to consider. Good luck!

Q&A: Starting Spinach Indoors

Question: Can spinach and/or New Zealand spinach be started in a greenhouse and transplanted outside in March or April?

Answer: Although it’s possible to start regular spinach indoors, it doesn’t take well to transplanting. And since the plants are hardy, spinach seed can be sown outdoors about five weeks before the last frost, so that’s the most common practice. New Zealand spinach is not a true spinach, and is not cold-hardy. It should be sown right into the garden after all danger of frost has passed. Since this is a heat-tolerant plant and doesn’t bolt like regular spinach, there is no need to get it started early.

Q&A: Blossoms On Seedlings

Question: Our zucchini and squash seedlings doing beautifully in our sunroom. The weather here is still cold, but the seedlings have sprouted blossoms. It’ll be a week or more before the weather gets mild. Should we pick off the blossoms?

Answer: I would pinch them off. At this point, you want the plant to be spending its energy on foliage and root systems, not on flowering. In my experience seedlings blossom when they are rootbound and stressed for moisture, nutrients, or space. I hope you can get these seedlings in the ground soon. I recommend direct sowing some extra seeds, too, just as insurance, in case this batch is stunted. Good luck to you!

Tip: Carefully Try Borax for Creeping Charlie Control

Creeping Charlie (Glechoma hederacea), is an invasive perennial weed that vines through lawns and chokes out grass. Although fairly indestructible, it is sensitive to boron. For creeping Charlie control, dissolve five teaspoons of 20 Mule Team Borax in one quart of water and spray over a 25-square-foot area of lawn. This treatment should not be used in flower or shrub beds as the boron can also harm the plants you care about. Do not repeat on lawns more than once.

Q&A: Lady Palm

Question: I’m planting 2 Lady Palms. The containers are full of stems and roots. Do I break them up before planting or plant them whole?

Answer: Palms have fibrous root systems and it will be difficult to separate the roots of your palms. Just plant them as is without trying to untangle the root mass. Dig holes as deep but a little wider than the nursery containers and set the plants in, backfilling with soil you took out of the planting holes. Water the palms thoroughly after planting to help settle the soil and be sure to water twice a week until they become established. Best wishes with your new palms.

Q&A: Wireworm Control

Question: What is the best way to rid the soil of wireworms? They destroyed half a row of bean plants, and I’ve given up growing potatoes because of them.

Answer: Wireworms are the larvae of the click beetle and are often a pest of potatoes, beets, and beans. You should plant your potatoes in a different garden spot this year. To help control the problem, cultivate the soil frequently to expose and kill the wireworms. Try planting a cover crop of clover in the garden area — it repels wireworms. If all fails, don’t plant potatoes, beets, beans, or carrots for a few years, until the population of click beetles dwindles.

Q&A: Green Growth on Soil

Question: What is the green stuff growing on the top of the soil in some my pots of seedlings? It can be scraped off and it hasn’t gone any further over the top.

Answer: It’s probably a moss or algae. Which ever it is, it is not a plant disease, but rather a sign that you are keeping the soil too wet. Back off the watering a bit, allowing the plants to dry out some between waterings. This will cut down on the unsightly green stuff.

Tip: Prune Roses

When pruning roses in the spring, remove damaged or dead canes, as well as any suckers or shoots that arise from the rootstock (this is not an issue with own-root roses). When pruning roses, be sure to cut back to an outward-facing bud so that new growth spreads away from the center of the plant, ensuring good air circulation and fewer disease problems. Fertilize roses now and apply a fresh organic mulch. For an extra boost, sprinkle one-quarter cup of Epsom salts around each rose and water in.
