  • Tomatoes are now in season, and soon you might have more on your hands than you know what to do with. A great way to use excess tomatoes, peppers, onions and other ingredients is by making salsa you can enjoy fresh now, or preserve for use throughout the year.

    To safely can salsa at home, you have to use proper food preservation techniques. If preserved incorrectly, the salsa could not only taste bad but also result in botulism, a deadly food-borne illness caused by toxins produced by bacteria in the canned food.

  • Weaning is usually a stressful time of year for calves. Limiting weaning stress in beef calves can increase their daily gain. Calves often experience four types of stress: physical, environmental, social, and nutritional. Practicing proper management can help them avoid or minimize stress.

  • Last week my husband and I took a short trip to Winter Garden, a town not too far from Orlando.

    We went to the historic downtown district with its trendy businesses housed in restored storefronts from as far back as the early 1900s.

    A restaurant we went in was originally Cappleman Brothers Grocery Store, built in 1912.

    As my husband read the menu, I read about the history of the building -- the original brick, the gothic stained glass panels in the front window that came from an old Presbyterian church.
