The unusual varieties of heirloom seeds still available today produce food that provide a mouthful of flavor unlike anything ever experienced from hybrid varieties.

This is a “must have” for foodies and cooks. The cookbook is a great resource. The book is a combination of heirloom specific recipes, concise growing tips, and heirloom history. The pictures are phenomenal and I even learned a thing or two from this book!

Eliminate Fruit Flies

Seriously, I can’t be the only one with this problem. I have tons of fruit flies in both my kitchen and bathroom. (Now, I couldn’t figure out why they were in the bathroom until a friend of mine informed me that they were probably coming up the sink!). I’ve been trying to get rid of these to no avail until I tried the Terro Fruit Fly trap.

TERRO Fruit Fly Traps are designed to lure adult fruit flies, using a special non-toxic food-based liquid lure. Flies enter the trap can’t escape to continue breeding and multiplying. Fruit fly populations tend to be greatest in late summer and early fall as they infest fruits during the harvest season (which explains my house infestation).

It took less than 5 minutes to set up and I’m literally running to the store to buy more of them! That’s how well they work!

It is safe for all foods, reversible, and my favorite — dishwasher-safe!

I totally love this Watermelon Cutting Board. It is perfect for when we go camping. It’s made super strong. It’s lasted through several camping trips and my house this summer. That is quite the feat in my house! Best of all, it is super cute! The knife worked great cutting the watermelon too, and that is super cute also.

I can only recommend both products which is why I have arranged to give away a Watermelon Knife And Cutting Board! Here’s what you need to do:
