PMD Just Neem Collage

 By Melissa McArdle Living a life filled with an abundance of outdoor living is one of life’s greatest pleasures, but often times, we are reminded that humans are not the only ones who like to soak up the fresh air. Yes, I’m talking about those pesky insects which circle, flitter and fly within the same shared atmosphere we like to deem as only ours. At least we now have options in regards to ‘green’ repellents.

Kale Butternut Squash Galette

PMD kale squash galette

By Estelle Hayes Without question, fall calls for comfort food staples like homemade soups and grilled cheese. But this year, I’m ready to welcome butternut squash into my weekly menu rotation – any way I can get it. I cannot get enough of the of this super food.

In the Garden ~ Prepping for Fall/Winter Plantings

PMD pumpkins

  By Torrie and Ryan Sessions Here in southern California, the arrival of a new season isn’t exactly as “clear-cut” as is the case in other parts of the world.  Fall saunters its way in eventually, not always [ever] as timely or prominent as I’d prefer.  Spring, on the other hand certainly compensates for its counterpart’s delay, sprinting right in with the utmost punctuality- not only on time, but early even!  Don’t get me wrong.  A lingering summer has a wealth of benefits- benefits that serve our garden well, and our appetites even greater.   How Read More →
