Care for Bone Strength

Dark green is a sign of minerals and physical peace that will help you work like a fine tuned machine. The minerals are very unique to what you need for ph balance which demonstrates homeostasis for function and rejuvenation.

The human structure can easily identify and put to work the magnesium in each serving and quickly convert it to a useable source  of calcium for the the cells to combat  against bone loss. If you are irritable you may be experiencing acidic ph balance. Irritability is the first sign. When this happens calcium is deposited in the blood stream from the bones to adjust the imbalance.

The idea is to support the body for proper function and  collagen for human function is relative where some are using collagen for bone strength also. The question we had was is bovine collagen better than marine collagen?

Bovine collagen coming from the cattle skin is classified as type 1 & type 3. Type one is found in your skin hair and bones so the assumption type one would be usable by the human body.  Type three is found in organs and arteries which is using fish bones and scales according to some reports.


You also have options for vegan sources such as aloe vera, licorice herb, pomegranate and cinnamon that support the production of collagen.  We have found that silica in food supports strong connective tissue and the highest concentration of silica is in bamboo and horsetail herb.  Using the building blocks of amino acids, vitamin C, silica, zinc and polysaccharides must be available for this production. Vitamin E works in conjunction with these items listed also.

In the food groups; plant are equipped with different elements for proper assimilation so choose your source as you see fit and most of all we wish you fresh food each day so you can be your best.

Fruit Yogurt Parfait
It is always a refresher to enjoy food from the vine and make raspberry yogurt with fresh fruit. If you have fresh from the vine berries  your vitamin C content will be at the highest content.

Plain yogurt is the first choice  for high probiotic factors. Stir in frozen fruit until the color changes from white to pink. As the color changes the yogurt becomes thicker and chilled. We top with granola and a sprig of fresh mint.

This is made without sugar the fruit sweetens the parfait perfectly yet if you choose, add a sprinkle of your favorite enhancer. Little steps towards a happy lifestyle will set examples for generations to come.

If you need help resourcing fresh fruit in your area you may contact our farm headquarters for assistance. We wish you a very happy and healthy day.

The oils of each plant are not intended for internal consumption but are very therapeutic as a breath of fresh air that is enjoyed every time we open the bottle of relaxation and bliss.

We hope you can enjoy the array of elegance as you keep the oils close by for a whiff of rosemary to spark your mental activity or the fragrance of chamomile as an emotional curtain of hope.

Organic marjoram essential oil is superb mixed as a respiratory steam and can assist with feelings of calm and being in control. The interaction with receptors in the brain can produce a homeostasis effect in some situations. Find a quiet spot that you find relaxing and safe and enjoy the fragrance that will lift your spirits.

A common fragrance that is left on the counter is tangerine it is such a perky happy aroma one cannot refuse its joy.

Rose oil is so elegant and has a way of making one feel beautiful and luxurious it is quite surprising how the plants in the earth have been overlooked by some.

Defense of Symbiosis

In our efforts to showcase products we think are valuable we have found a new friend for immune support.

Fresh Cap has an Ultimate Mushroom Complex for an amazing result with daily consumption.

A combination of Lions Mane, Turkey Tail, Reishi, Cordyceps, Maitake, and Chaga mushrooms. Take a small amount to start because this is very strong and the flavor is not pronounced.

In a blender add mushroom powder coconut milk carob or chocolate powder and ice with a dash of honey or stevia tea and 1 mint leaf with green powder we used Jurassic green. Blend to perfection and enjoy.

We recommend this blend for immune function plus many more benefits. Every mushroom has an assignment and mental clarity, energy and the ability to focus without becoming drained that was the result our team noticed.

Thank you Fresh Cap we appreciate our fresh cap thinking powder.

Hidden Choice

Water is a precious resource that is valuable to those who have it. Some water in other regions may be cloudy or filled with toxins so we are greatful for . A recent online discussion suggested that if one drinks 6 ounces of water every 90 minutes it will hydrate you and not keep you in the bathroom throughout the day.

It is fashionable to add vitamins or immune drops or flavorings to make it energizing or improve on the flavor of water. It does taste plain and the cells in your body appreciate the quality of H20 to flush out toxins and hydrate your skin so you are performing at optimal rates for efficiency.

We have noticed some advertisers promoting alcohol free drops which can not be acceptable in some arenas such as young children. The idea of alcohol free is a good choice yet we have seen evidence that glycerin extracts that are used for preservation may be unhealthy.

The danger is that glycerin that comes in contact with a cell will draw water from the cell into the outer layer giving a plump appearance yet it can collapse the cells in the long run. Some people are suffering internally from gastrointestinal distress and/or having allergic reactions.

We want every one to live a healthy lifestyle and this information has been implemented in our community and we want this idea to be taken into consideration if others around you might be suffering unnecessarily.

Fresh Ideas for staying on the right track.

Beautiful Smile

The expression of the heart is a start for a new beginning. What brings joy is memorable as the internal composition of the body cellular structure functions perfectly when there is joy.

The obstacles in life are set to prevent elation and bring frustration. It has been said that if one can laugh at the trouble in life it will dissolve the ability to hurt. Anguish will not happen in a happy heart for it is impossible to laugh and be angry at the same time.

We like to surround ourselves with creatures that make us smile and find enjoyment from helping others in need. The bouquet of beauty in a vase is a fragrant symbol of elegance. If we can have hope in something that is joyful, happy and loving we can certainly move our thoughts from a negative swing to a grateful day.

Surround yourself with positivity and hopefulness and your heart will be full and have no room for arrows of anger. If others are rude and hurtful they have revealed their heart that may be full of pain. Understanding this behavior will bring one to a level of perspective that lets insults roll of off us like water on a ducks back.

Fresh Ideas for a Beneficial Approach

Fresh is Best

Planter Options

In the yard the edging will always catch the eye so here is an idea with parsley and petunias. The plants are companions offering shade for younger shoots and plants that support each other.

We have herbs that have matured from last years seed distribution fresh herbs work well with the planter and gives you immediate nutrition for tea and drying options. This plant is called Melissa for the support of anxiety also known as Lemon Balm.

This planter is started by seed which grew together for a continuous bloom. We have Swiss Chard, California poppy and radish. Herbs and flowers grow well because the taller plants offer afternoon shade when the temperatures heat up.

We transplanted young amaryllis in the beginning of the year. Keep in mind that there are other flower seeds that have been scattered beneath so when the plants like swiss chard are finished flowers will mature in their place. We have seeded zinnia’s on the way under this cover. Marigolds and delphinium are another good option.

The idea that garden plants will finish in 30-90 days it is something that will always be changing for a new look. This is not a long term project and the harvest in 30 days depends on the seed sown on this day.

Happy Gardening we wish you bundles of bounty

Gardener’s Circle

The entrance gives the garden or outdoor room an inviting appeal. In your community of friends you may have a circle of gardening friends.

Some like to come by bringing the bounty of their harvest to share. Sometimes it is fresh fruit or vegetables. Since we started our farm we have always sent people home with something to eat as a memory of the good times we enjoy together.

Today we received fresh fermented salsa brine from a friend and we sent them home with red and green romaine lettuce. It reminds me of how nice it is to have seed in the ground so fresh food is growing every month of the year.

Each month represents a different crop so there is always food on the vine or on a tree we would like to encourage you to plant a seed every month. It may be a flower or a tree or a vegetable that will be a blessing to someone in need.

The funny thing is that a plant does not produce a small amount is is always an overflow of food so we will never be hungry. The best choice is to go outside find some food and cook it fresh. Fresh Is Best is a motto that we live by and we wish for all others to enjoy the fresh crops of the ground. January to December we look forward to a new fruit or vegetable.

At Christmas we often give out jam or jelly from the farm and sometimes people give us fruit to use as long as we give them a pint of the jam they adore so much.

Connecting with people and touching their heart we love to help others each day from the start.

It is spring the crocus has come up with daffodils in bloom and while we wait for the tulips we have the most beautiful fragrance in the freesia gardens. The smell will captivate the traveler as they stroll by.

The white flowers are a stronger scent so while in bloom we put fresh bouquets by the chair with a view of the sunrise that will always relax our family and friends and all who visit our farm.

For Easter the multi colored bouquet is a very attractive conversational piece. We are thrilled to share with you the good news about this bloom.

Product Review

Enjoy fresh baked sourdough bread by clicking on our affiliate links as we are thankful for your patronage.

The table is set and company is coming for dinner. We have received a gift box from Wildgrain so we put our french bread loaf in the oven and baked it on the rack for 18-22 minutes. The first convenient thing is that the bread is baked straight from the freezer. Wonderful this is important for those who have a busy schedule.

We presented our dinner with fresh baked french loaf and the house smelled like a bakery as home style bread always does. No one could tell this was prepared ahead of time from the Wildgrain company. Someone commented she made this fresh you can tell the golden color because she uses fresh farm eggs in her bakery items.

Frozen to fresh in 18 minutes very impressive. The bread delivery for this came in an insulated box with fresh made pasta noodles and assorted loafs that were frozen from their bakery.

The idea of this sourdough is great and then we read the label on the back to check the ingredient listing and what a surprise they use organic non gmo products so if you are a label person you can see the listing here. This is something that is important for our family because we promote organic food with non gmo wheat and additional ingredients.

The most important point here is the flavor which has a crisp outer flavor and moist texture inside. Very authentic and delicious.

Thank you Wildgrain for supporting home baked goodness at an affordable price we give you a five star rating.

Using herbs in your cooking as a fragrance and flavor element creates a meal that is memorable. Historically if you were invited to partake of the bounty of food you would be considered a friend and important to the family with the invitation for the event.

Herbs have many properties in there leaves, flowers, bark and roots for medicinal and culinary enjoyment. If you are familiar with the plant properties wild or garden harvest would be used for the meal leaving 50% of the plant in the ground for further generations. Plants will flower and reseed your garden automatically so you will always have future herbs in your yard for many meals to come.

Another benefit for our meals is to consider that spices applied to meat in a dry rub or seasoned before cooking has an antibacterial action and can ward off pathogenic microorganisms and keep us healthy (Billing & Sherman, 1998).

Herbs stored indoors for the winter should be upgraded every 4 to 6 months therefore your dishes will taste their best when you serve them to your friends and family.

Planting seeds for outdoor landscaping and floral bouquets and culinary meals can be started indoors on a windowsill or a table by the light shining in from outside so when the weather is ready for planting in your area you will be ready for a aromatic backyard experience.

Live Strong

Veggies in the pot with water and soup bones from your market can produce a warm broth that is comforting and rewarding. The bones and the vegetables should be put in a crockpot and cooked on low for 24 hours. We enjoy the flavor of carrots, celery, salt, pepper and bay leaves with garlic and fresh thyme. To create a rich stock we use 2 pounds of bones.

A vegetarian option for broth can be made with carrots, celery, garlic, salt, pepper, parsley & kale. The options are many for broth using fresh produce would be best for flavor and nutrients.

We hope you enjoy the benefits of added calcium iron and potassium for heart health.

Welcome Bees

We enjoy the the symphony of the outdoor sounds that are relaxing and enjoyable in the yard. The trees around the garden contain birds who eat the seeds on the ground. Butterflies are so colorful as we relax in the morning sunshine.

What a joy to celebrate life as bees tend to the flowers to make honey for us to enjoy. We are grateful for raw honey as we use it to cover a wound for the antiseptic value.

If a friend or family member feels a scratchy throat we use cayenne and honey to remove the pain.

The idea of enjoying the outdoor attributes at dinner table are common. Wildflower honey infused with sage is very enjoyable on the biscuits that come from the oven around 5 pm.

What can done to preserve our friends that suffer from unnatural means to destroy them. We can plant flowers that are safe and create an environment where they can thrive and be safe.

Butterfly bushes, echinacea and wildflowers are just a few if we plant a small area we can help to create beauty and enjoyment for all around knowing we have made a difference with the land we have. A flower pot on a patio or a box of marigolds you see can do a lot for our beloved bees.

If you would like to see the flowers they may enjoy visit this page as you prepare for spring planting.

Plants can have a positive factor that benefits us. The spices in your kitchen add flavor and support for your health and immune system. Sage tea is good for a sore throat and thyme can be used to clean a wound. If you are in a bind and need an herbal solution it is nice to have fresh spices growing. Fresh spices are also very nice in flower bouquets.

Cardamom is a beautiful plant and the pods are ground to give a very unique flavor when used in moderation. This plant is useful for UTI’s, depression and a fatty liver. It is always best to consult a physician to get their approval before adding a new product in your diet. This plant is very unique in appearance and in culinary meals.

The cardamom pods are ground up to give us that unique flavor. The power of a plant can change your life. We hope you can enjoy your life to the full measure you are intended to have.

The next time you would like a special treat try adding a dash of cardamom to your french toast batter and serve with fresh maple syrup. Cardamom pairs well with vanilla so this fresh idea may brighten your cuisine.

When it comes to spices a little goes a long way so enjoy all the variety we have and treat yourself.
