You Should Brine Some Pumpkin Seeds in Beer and Air Fry ‘Em

I am not good at carving pumpkins. I can manage a rudimentary face with a snaggletoothed smile and triangle eyes, or simple ideological symbols, but that’s it! I am, however, very good at cooking pumpkin seeds.Read more… Continue Reading at https://lifehacker.com

Stop Throwing Your Rotting Pumpkins in the Trash (and Do This Instead)

The only thing sadder than a sunken, desiccated, mold-covered Jack-O-Lantern on your front step is one in your trash can.

Pick the Tomatoes at the Bottom of Your Plant First

This is year is my first year as a gardener. I think it’s going well, especially when you consider I have a history of killing every house plant I have ever attempted to keep alive (even air plants). Soon I will have nurtured into existence corn, tomatoes, and a truly absurd amount of tomatillos, and […]

Grow Your Own Sprouts in a Mason Jar

Sprouts are versatile little plants you can add to bread, salads, and sandwiches; they offer a range of tastes from subtle to even spicy; and they can keep your glucose levels low.

How to Make Your Own Bouquet Garni
