Rutabaga is a great addition to a cold weather garden! It is commonly mistaken for turnips since they look and are grown very similar!

Inflammation is the reaction that occurs within our body to help our body heal. Whether you have a minor wound, pain, or chronic inflammation causing cancer, a healthy diet can help to make you start to feel better. Exercise can also help to promote an anti-inflammatory response (unless otherwise contraindicated). Anti-inflammatory effects can be seen with the intake of omega-3 and some antioxidants.!
May is one of the best months for growing in Oklahoma.
Culantro is a herb typically grown in tropical areas as a replacement for cilantro. Cilantro is one of our favorite herbs to use in cooking, but our growing season here in Oklahoma makes it difficult to grow because of how hot it gets. Culantro is a great alternative to cilantro that flourishes in heat and can handle as much sun as you give it. It has a bit more of a kick than traditional cilantro, but we are usually using it in Mexican dishes so we enjoy this extra kick! Culantro does not typically transplant well so it is best to do them from seed.
Berry bushes are typically fairly easy to grow and well worth the reward! There are a few pests to watch out for, but you can manage easily organically!
Lyme disease is a disease spread by ticks. There are many long-term symptoms that are associated with this condition. As with any chronic illness, a healthy diet with plenty of vegetables is essential!
