2/11, # 1: This picture represents the event in which Nhamo steals Tambu's mealies, or sween for. This event shows how Nhamo does not care about Tambu's education. In fact, he purposefully does not want her to attend school. This shows how in their society, women are expected to be at home, working, and not know as much as men. Corn is sometimes symbolized as money or wealth. This corn is Tambu's wealth; her chance at an education.

cilantro pot how to grow cilantro for continuous crop
A better way to grow cilantro - try this method for a fast, continuous crop. Wouldn't it be nice to have fresh cilantro growing right outside your kitchen door? Whenever you wanted to fix Mexican salsa or guacamole, or a Middle Eastern yogurt sauce for your lamb kabobs, there the lacy, sweetly pungent leaves would be, ready to harvest. But if you've ever tried to grow it, you've probably noticed that cilantro yields a fast crop; plants are barely up before they try to flower and set seeds. So those tasty leaves aren't around long, especially in warm weather. To keep leaves coming, you can sow seeds every two weeks for a continuous cilantro crop. Or, even better, try the method we perfected in Sunset's test garden last year: Grow cilantro as you would mesclun. Sow seeds thickly in a wide, shallow container; then, as soon as plants are 3 to 4 inches tall and sporting a couple of cuttable leaves, use scissors to cut off some foliage for cooking as shown. Shear from a different section of the container every time, rotating the pot as you go and never letting plants in any area mature. By the time you get back to the first section harvested, new leaves will have appeared. Cilantro growing tips 1. Select a bowl-shaped container at least 18 inches wide and 8 to 10 inches deep. 2. Fill the pot with a fast-draining potting soil; mix in an organic granular fertilizer. 3. Before seeding, moisten the soil using a fine spray from the hose. Because the seeds are fairly small, mix them in a bowl with sand (3 parts sand to 1 part seed) so they'll disperse more evenly. Sow the seeds, then cover lightly with soil. 4. Gently mist the soil so as not to displace the seeds. 5. Place containers in full sun or, if you live in a hot climate, light shade. Seeds should germinate in 7 to 10 days. 6. Harvest at least weekly to keep leaves coming. Using this method, it's possible to harvest four crops of cilantro from a single pot.
This hardy crop lasts for decades in the garden and is one of the first vegetables that can be harvested in spring. Plant asparagus (Asparagus officinalis) in full sun and moist, well-drained soil.

Asparagus...second year, harvest spears that are 1/2-inch in diameter, but only for two weeks. Cut or break off 7- to 9-inch-long spears with tightly closed tips. In subsequent years, harvest for five to eight weeks, then allow the shoots to develop into ferny growth to build up the roots for the following year's crop.

Easy grow herbs and several seed starting tips
Growing Herbs Herbs are easy to grow from seeds and there are literally hundreds of different herbs that the home gardener can grow. If you can’t have a large garden and are just itching to grow something growing herbs in containers is for you. Having fresh homegrown herbs on the window sill or right outside the kitchen door to use whenever you want is surprisingly satisfying. Fresh herbs taste so much better than dried herbs bought in the spice aisle. Gardening should be fun and I was going to give you all the technical information on how easy herbs are to grow from seeds but you know what? with the exception of the Lemon Grass all of these herbs will grow as an annual almost anywhere in the country. When I first started gardening I willy nilly picked the herbs and flowers that I wanted to grow. I had plenty of failures but I also had great success with plants that weren’t even suppose to grow here in Florida. It must have been dumb luck because the longer I gardened the more I learned and started to get pickier with the plants that I grew. Gardening: Easy Herbs to Grow from Seeds Herb gardening is a little different then flower or vegetable gardening. Most grow quickly from seed. Most reseed themselves and will give you fresh new plants that will continue to grow throughout the growing season or first frost where you live. When to Plant Herb Seeds As with all gardening you will need to know when the correct time of the year to start seeds in your area is if you are going to start your seeds outdoors. All seeds have a certain temperature they need to germinate. Here in Florida we start almost all our seeds in January or February depending on how bad of a winter we are having. Because it gets so hot here in the Summer months most of our vegetable gardening ends when the rest of the country is harvesting their vegetables. But with the proper care and lots of shade herb plants can be grown 12 months out of the year in Florida. You should wait until after the last frost to sow any seeds outdoors. How to start Herb seeds in a container The most important thing you will need to grow herbs in a container is a seed starting mixture. You may think that all you have to do is sprinkle some seeds over the top of potting soil, water and magically the herbs will grow. This is not the case when starting seeds. Seeds need a light and airy starting medium to get a healthy start. Potting soil is too dense, heavy and holds too much moisture. Many herb seeds are tiny and will not have the strength to push up through the dense potting soil. Seeds and seedlings will die of a fungus if started in a regular potting soil because of its ability to hold water. Potting soil is for established plants not seeds and seedlings. Tips for planting herb seeds in containers When I start herb seeds I like to fill my decorative herb container with a good potting soil. Then I sprinkle 1 inch of a seed starting medium on top of the potting soil. Then I will sow the herb seeds in the seed starting medium directly in my pot. This way I can avoid the work of transplanting the seedlings. Depending on the size of the pot and the seeds I may plant 10 to 20 seeds in the top of an 8 inch container. Some of the seeds won’t sprout but if they do I will either thin them out or transplant them into other pots. 12 Easy Herbs to Grow from Seed Basil Calendula Chives Dill Fennel Lemon Balm Lemon Verbena Mint (invasive do not plant in the ground) Oregano Parsley Lemon Grass Thyme Some recipes and ways to use the fresh herbs you have grown. Sweet Basil is the basil of choice for seasoning sauces and making pesto. It is not my favorite basil to grow. Lemon Basil is my favorite variety of Basil and makes a wonderful Lemon Basil Herbal Soda. I’ve also make a beautiful Blackberry & Lemon Basil Gelato recipe using fresh lemon basil from my garden. Calendula also known as pot marigold and not to be confused with the garden variety marigold found in garden centers is a healing herb that can be used to make a simple healing salve. I’ve made many a batch ( but have never posted the recipe here) to help my husband with his severly dry and cracked hands. Chives can be used to top a baked potato, used on any salad, added to egg salad or tuna fish. Any recipe that you might want to add the delicate onion like flavor. Dill I love growing dill because I love making homemade Refrigerator Garlic Dill Pickles during the summer months when the Kirby Cucumbers are in season. But I also love to use fresh Dill in a Dill and Cucumber dip I make. Fennel I’ve never personally grown fennel myself. Lemon Balm is another lemon flavored herb I love to use to make Homemade Soda with a simple syrup. I’ve also used it in egg salad and made an herbal dye out of the plant that I used to dye fabric for my art quilts back when I had time to sew. Lemon Verbena do you see a pattern here I love all the lemon scented herbs. Each one of the lemon flavored herbs have their own distinct lemon flavor. You will have to plant them to see what I am talking about. Lemon Verbena has the closest flavor and scent of a lemon then any other herb I have grown. It can be used in any recipe you want the delicate undertones of lemon. I love making a lemon verbena syrup and using it to sweeten a glass of Sweet Tea and I have also used it to make a batch of Fruity Red Wine Sangria during the summer. Mint is one of my favorite herbs to grow and come in so many varieties now. I’ve grown spearmint, peppermint, orange mint, pineapple mint, chocolate mint and probably a few more that I have forgotten about. Chocolate mint smells like a jr mint candy. Although I don’t have a recipe on the blog I have made a simple syrup from almost all these varieties and made homemade soda with them. Oregano is used to flavor soups, stews, meats and poultry. My favorite dish to use oregano on is to bake chicken thighs seasoned with it. I pull the meat off the bone, wrap it in a homemade flat bread like this homemade Gordita recipe and eat it with a little shredded cheese and a drizzle of Italian Dressing. Parsley I use parsley on everything. In salads, as a plate garnish in a homemade ricotta ravioli filling. Lemon Grass is used in many Indian recipes. Here in Florida it grown into a huge bush. I love Lemon Grass for it’s ornamental beauty and have never used it in a recipe but I have used it as a plant fiber to make homemade paper back in my arty days. Thyme besides a great culinary herb for soups and stews thyme is the herb of the fairies. It is a must have if you are planning to plant a fairy garden with your kids.

Rose Cuttings: This is crazy! I LOVE Roses and plant them wherever I live!!!! I'll be doing this! Did you know that you can grow roses from cuttings? Simply cut healthy stems, place them in large potatoes, and them bury them 3-4 inches deep in a healthy soil mixture of peet moss and top soil. The potatoes keep the stems moist and help develop the root systems. It's a perfectly simple way to multiply your rose garden without spending lots of $$$.
Rooting Rose Cuttings ----------- Propagating roses by cuttings is easy. Some say the secret of success is the humble potato! Before planting rose cuttings, push the bottom end into a small potato, which keeps the cuttings moist as they develop roots. It sounds crazy, but apparently it works really well.
root rose cuttings by plunging the root end into a small potato and then planting...the potato provides moisture and helps the new roots form. Try it! It works.
