Hurricane Season is Here!

Article 6: "Hurricane-Ready"

As we were thinking about this month's newsletter, an obvious topic was the fact that Hurricane Season starts June 1st. Help yourself and others and please read this article: "Be Hurricane-Ready" and don't get caught rushing around at the last minute.

Dipping Veggies, and Taking a Dip!

Can you believe that summer is here already? Time to get dipping those fresh veggies in your favorite veggie dip (then dehydrate the fresh goodies that are left-over) - and time to take a welcoming dip in the pool to cool off, and have some summer-time fun!

It doesn't feel like we're half-way to Christmas already! But June 1st heralded the start of Hurricane Season, so we are keeping our fingers crossed that nothing bad happens to anyone, anywhere, as the USA has already had its share of weather-related fatalities - with floods, and tornadoes ... We can very easily prepare for hurricanes, due to excellent online and TV weather stations - but tornadoes are another matter altogether as you do not have much time to get out of harms way. Our thoughts go out to all who are currently suffering the aftermath of the wrath of destruction the tornadoes caused in May.

Growing Lettuce -- Indoors -- results so far!

Six weeks ago I attempted to grow lettuce, indoors, in a planter from Target, and some organic potting soil. Sad to say, the results were dismal, which is putting it nicely.

As a reminder, these are just generic seeds available anywhere, that I was using; they were NOT my 'good seeds' from the Survival Seed Bank; I'm saving those for when I 'know what I'm doing' with the cheapo seeds! :-)

I ended up subscribing to 'Florida Gardening' magazine, to find out what I'm doing wrong. I'm pretty sure it's because the seeds never got any 'sun', sure they were on my sunny south-facing window ledge, but that probably isn't enough - so I'm going to sow some more seeds today, and move the planter outdoors when I see sprouts - so yet again, I'll keep you posted!

Update on Dehydrating Turkey

As promised, this is to let you know that the sliced cooked turkey breast I dehydrated a month ago, is still good, i.e. has NOT gone bad!

Can you Dehydrate Brussels Sprouts?

Jamie, from New York, contacted us to ask if you can dehydrate Brussels Sprouts? The answer is "yes you can!" Check out the FAQ page at the bottom, to find out how!

If you already have RSS feeder software loaded, then RIGHT click on the top RSS orange button, select COPY which pastes the info. it needs to the PC's clipboard, and then go to your RSS reader, and 'add a feed', by pasting the clipboard's contents and there you go!

May Recipe Winner of the Month is ...

Congratulations goes to my mom for the May Winning Recipe, really, as she's the one who introduced me to the goodness of Ratatouille! This somewhat hard-to-pronounce Mediterranean recipe is easy to fix, smells delicious cooking on the stove top, and goes great with rice, or orzo.

My easy pronunciation: ra-ta-too-eee, which for some strange reason, makes my friend John in the UK, laugh hysterically!
