The USDA Hardiness Zone Map divides North America into 11 separate zones; each zone is 10°F warmer (or colder) in an average winter than the adjacent zone. If you see a hardiness zone in a catalog or plant description, chances are it refers to the USDA map. To find your USDA Hardiness Zone or use the map below.

The Number one seed starting mistake is starting too soon.
Try to resist the temptation and your seedlings will be better for it

Always use the right onion:
Sweet Onion: Best for onion rings, gratins, roasted vegetables, and frying.
Red Onion: Best for eating raw, making guacamole, salads, and sandwiches.
White Onion: Best for salsas, chutneys, stir-fries, and are the crunchiest onion.
Yellow Onion: Best for general cooking, meat roasts, sauces, soups, and stews.
Shallot: Best for vinaigrettes, egg casseroles, garnishes, and is the mildest onion.

Rub Canola/Olive Oil on your knives before cutting onions to prevent your eyes from tearing up.

Chickens start laying eggs when they are around 5 months old. They'll lay almost an egg a day for the first year or so, then take time off to molt (grow in new feathers). They might take off that next winter as well, depending on their breed. That next spring, their eggs will be a bit larger. They'll continue to lay until fall and then repeat the cycle. After 2 or 3 years of laying, their production will drop about 20% a year, until they're not laying many eggs at all, by the time they're around 6 years old. Maybe a few each spring and that's it. Chickens can live to be 9 or 10 years old and will happily sit on eggs and hatch chicks long after they stop laying eggs of their own. Fascinating creatures, chickens are.

So I found out something that was pretty cool that a lot of people don't know.
So I cranked up my generator it runs fine but it's not putting out power. So I called the Briggs & Stratton company. He told me my generator lost its magnetic field. So he told me to start up the generator and plug in an electric drill. And keep turning the drill backward. Till it automatically comes on. And goes the right way... it puts the magnetic field back into the generator.
I thought that was pretty cool to know.
