The Lemon-Garlic Mixture Recipe that Chris Wark (Chris Beat Cancer) Recommends

My husband and I are both over 70, and while we have the odd age-expected ache or pain or fallen hair or swollen ankles or whatever, we have avoided many of the BIG Diseases: Heart Disease, Diabetes, High Blood Pressure, Arthritis, Cancer-- but we have had family with these diseases and there is a good chance that we will have something like this hit at some time.  That is the way of the world these days, is it not? So, to be proactive and preventative, we believe that "Food is Our Medicine" and we adhere to a Whole Food/Plant-Based way of eating.

Falling Away from All that Extra Garden Work...

Eileen over at her blog Organic Gardening for the Clueless has discovered that leaving the leaves in the garden and the dead heads to bob in the wind is actually not so clueless ... it's good environmental science. The leaves turn to compost, the odd seed heads provide winter munchies for the birds.  And, now, WILD BEES are also benefited by my messy yard! Turns out that winter is the prime season for the lazy gardener... I personally wonder how I can convince my neighbors of this in my pretty pristine retirement ghetto? (I do care what my neighbors think, alas). The Bee Friendly Garden @ Bee Garden Colouring Book
