    How to Sprout a Jicama Root

    by Megan Shoop
    The jicama root, sometimes called the Mexican potato, is native to New Mexico, southern Texas and Mexico. It tastes something like an apple and has the consistency of a potato, but contains less starch and fewer calories. For these reasons, jicama roots make a healthy, sweet addition to coleslaw and...

      Haven't had jicama since the '80s. After buying one a few years later, only to find it streaked with brown, did not try it again until today. Had a peach salsa with it which my husband liked (he doesn't like veggies). Low in sugar and salt and no fat. Eat raw, or saute for the crunch effect. Will try it in a fruit salad which will be a treat to beat the heat.

    I love the tall 'Limelight' Hydrangea (Hydrangea paniculata 'Limelight') for its beautiful and reliable white/lime green flowers, fast growth and easy care. You cannot go wrong with this plant if you have room for it. It is hardy to Zone 3, can grow to 10 feet tall and thrives in full sun or partial shade. It makes both a wonderful cut flower and landscape plant. You can even prune it into tree form.

    Great mix of lavender and wispy grass - natives to Northern California and easy to maintain. Low water usage.

    Easy, non-toxic way to kill grass without back breaking labor. I need to remember this for later!
