  • Quinoa (pronounced KEEN-wah) is a small, grain-like seed native to the Andes Mountains of South America. It was grown by the Incan people thousands of years ago and is often called the “mother grain.” 

    It is not a true cereal grain, but actually the seed of a plant related to beets, Swiss chard and spinach.

    We call it a grain because it can be prepared and used in the same way as traditional grains. 

  • It has been a long, hard and cold winter for Carroll County. With the snow and ice we have experienced this week, the beginning of March has certainly lived up to the age-old saying, “in like a lion.” Let us all hope it will go “out like a lamb.”

    Believe it or not, spring really is on the way, causing homeowners to begin turning their attention to the landscape.

    To ensure healthy spring plants, consider pruning trees and shrubs around the home that have been affected by the weather.
