  • Hello once again, my friends. Here we are, staring fall in the face. All the glorious comfort foods that we love are coming back into season. Before long it will be chili Sunday at lots of households. Mashed potatoes with lots of cream and butter, stews and hearty soups. In essence what I am saying is it’s getting close to my favorite time of year!

  • Fall is known for its abundance of great, fresh foods, and apples are among the most popular. You can prepare apples in many different ways and include them as ingredients in main courses, side dishes and desserts.

    Not only are apples great additions to any meal, but they are also packed full of nutrients. They are low in calories, fat and sodium, cholesterol free and a great source of fiber. Apples also contain phytochemicals that may help prevent many chronic diseases including cancer, heart disease, asthma and diabetes.

  • With the first day of autumn, Sept. 23, now come and gone, it is a great time to think about taking soil samples for fertility analyses.
