Pickled Purslane Recipe

Purslane up close under the Microscope prior to bloom phase by AquarianBath
Would you like to know what to do with purslane in your garden?  Did you know it is a tasty edible?  Check out my blog post at EcoEtsy on how to make pickled purslane stems and find out ways that other EcoEtsy members use edible weeds in their garden.  I am now a monthly food and gardening contributer at the EcoEtsy blog so I will be sure to share here when I post articles there.

New Microwave Flaxseed Neck Pillows with Organic Herbs

I recently tripled my inventory of flaxseed microwavable neck pillows.  In addition to many new fabrics, I also made a new herbal blends.  So now there are 3 types of pillows available: 1) Plain Organic Flax seed, 2) Organic Lavender and Flax seed and 3) Organic Spearmint, Lavender, Chamomile and Flaxseed.  The blend with Spearmint is really wonderful hot for sinus congestion.  I used it almost exclusively recently when I caught a little sinus cold from the kids.  In order to make it easy to shop by type of pillow I added these 3 categories to the neck wraps  section of Aquarian Bath.  You can use them for heat therapy or cold therapy.  I store mine in the freezer and use them for bumps and bruises or to cool down.  These make wonderful holiday gifts.

Beach Clean up in Ormond Beach Saturday morning

My Mother in Ormond Beach 2012
One of my 8 year old's favorite activities is trash clean up. She gets so excited about it! So of course we will be participating in this Saturday morning Beach clean up in the morning with my friend and Volusia County Council District 4 candidate Shannon McLeish. I hope to see some of my online friends tomorrow morning also. I'm looking forward to congratulate Shannon in person on her latest endorsements from the Sierra Club, the Democratic Veterans Caucus of Florida, and the Volusia Environmental Action Committee. I'm really proud to have a chance to support someone who is so active in community building and who truly cares about the environment.

Meet at the gazebo: Bicentennial Park 1800 Ocean Shore Blvd. by 7:30 AM this Saturday, September 15, with "Un-Leash McLeish" t-shirts, fruit, and juice (bring your own coffee). The actual clean up is from 8 to 10 AM.
