Good Advice from an Old Farmer…. and Albert Einstein!

The best sermons are lived, not preached.

Homegrown’s all right with me
Homegrown is the way it should be
Homegrown is a good thing
Plant that bell and let it ring
The sun comes up in the morning
Shines that light around
One day, without no warning
Things start jumping up from the ground
“Homegrown” by Neil Young

“Albert Einstein was a German-born theoretical physicist,
widely acknowledged to be one of the greatest physicists of all time.
Einstein is known for developing the Theory of Relativity,
but he also made important contributions to the development of
the Theory of Quantum Mechanics.” – wikipedia

“Insanity: doing the same thing over and over
again and expecting different results.”
– Albert Einstein

Your fences need to be horse-high, pig-tight and bull-strong.

Keep skunks and bankers at a distance.

Life is simpler when you plow around the stump.

A bumble bee is considerably faster than a tractor.

Words that soak into your ears are whispered… not yelled.

“A table, a chair, a bowl of fruit and a violin;
what else does a man need to be happy?” – Albert Einstein

Albert Einstein won the Nobel Prize for Physics in 1921
for the discovery of the photoelectric effect.
He received his Nobel Prize for 1921 one year later, in 1922.

Meanness don’t jes’ happen overnight.

Forgive your enemies; it messes with their heads.

Do not corner something that you know is meaner than you.

It don’t take a very big person to carry a grudge.

You cannot unsay a cruel word.

“Great spirits have always encountered
violent opposition from mediocre minds.”
– Albert Einstein

“Look deep into nature,
and then you will understand everything better.”
– Albert Einstein

Every path has a few puddles.

When you wallow with pigs, expect to get dirty.

Remember that silence is sometimes the best answer.

Most of the stuff people worry about ain’t never gonna happen anyway.

Don’t judge folks by their relatives.

“Science can flourish only
in an atmosphere of free speech.”
– Albert Einstein

Albert Einstein was married twice
and had three children from his first wife.

Live a good, honorable life…
Then when you get older and think back, you’ll enjoy it a second time.

Don‘t interfere with somethin’ that ain’t bothering you none.

Timing has a lot to do with the outcome of a Rain Dance.

If you find yourself in a hole,
the first thing to do is stop diggin’.

“Try not to become a man of success,
but rather try to become a man of value.”
– Albert Einstein

“Life is like riding a bicycle.
To keep your balance you must keep moving.” 
– Albert Einstein

Sometimes you get, and sometimes you get “got”.

The biggest troublemaker you’ll probably ever have to deal with,
watches you from the mirror every mornin’.

Good judgment comes from experience,
and a lotta that experience comes from bad judgment.

Lettin’ the cat outta the bag is a whole lot easier than puttin’ it back in.

Grow food, not lawns.

“A happy man is too satisfied with the present
to dwell too much on the future.” – Albert Einstein

If you get to thinkin’ you’re a person of some influence,
try orderin’ someone else’s dog around..

Live simply. Love generously.
Care deeply. Speak kindly.

Don’t pick a fight with an old man.
If he is too old to fight, he’ll just kill you.

Most times, it just comes down to common sense.

“The important thing is not to stop questioning.
Curiosity has its own reason for existing.”
– Albert Einstein

Oh, Mother Earth
With your fields of green
Once more laid down
By the hungry hand
How long can you
Give and not receive
And feed this world
Ruled by greed
“Mother Earth” by Neil Young

Dandelions!

Dandelions!
(Genus: Taraxacum, family: Asteraceae)

🌼💛 Hello, I’m a dandelion.
A lot of people call me a weed but I’m a friend and come to help you!
When you see me, remember that I’m the ONLY one who wants and can grow in that particular spot. Because:
Either the soil is too compact / hard / stomped and I want to loosen it for you with my roots.
Or there is too little calcium in the soil – don’t worry, I will replenish that for you with the dying of my leaves.
Or the soil is too acidic. But I will also improve that for you if you give me the chance.
Or a mixture of the above reasons, of course. 😊
I’m here because your soil needs my help so best you let me grow without disturbing me! When everything is fixed, I will disappear again, I promise!
Are you trying to remove me prematurely with my root? However meticulous you are, I will return 2x as strong! Just until your soil is improved.
You can even tell by my growth at which stage my help is at. If my leaves are flat on the ground then I’m far from ready but if they all reach up then I’m already a long way on my way.
Something completely different is that I am 1 of the first bloomers in spring so I will announce spring / summer for you.
During the day when it’s hot, I open my flowers but in the evening when it cools off I close them again quickly. In fact, if it’s not hot enough during the day I won’t open them at all!
My flowers are the first food for insects after hibernation and unlike most other plants, I have pollen AND nectar, not merely one OR the other! And I am generous with them! 🤪😉
My flowers are even delicious for you people by the way, did you know? I used to be called ′′honey (or gold) of the poor′′ because my flowers are so sweet in e.g. jam, sauce or salad! The internet is full of recipes – check them out.
But wait until the end of May or later before you start picking and even then, don’t pick everything yet! The biodiversity and bees will be very grateful!

Dandelions are an herb that is native to Europe.
Dandelions can be found in mild climates
in temperate regions across the Northern Hemisphere.

Taraxacum officinale is the most common species.
The common dandelion is a flowering herbaceous perennial plant.
The scientific study of the genus is known as taraxacology.

The English name comes from the French dent de lion  (lion’s tooth) 
referring to the shape the leaves.

Dandelions have medicinal properties used in traditional herbal medicine

Nicholas Vachel Lindsay (November 10, 1879 – December 5, 1931)
was an American Poet known as “The Prarie Troubadour”

“There’s starting to be a lot more argument that they should be kept because of what they can do for pollinators. Ecologically they are becoming very important as a food source for domestic and wild species of bees, particularly in early spring because they grow so soon. Butterflies and moths also feed on them as a source of sugar, and some species of birds feed on dandelion seeds”
– Ken Willis, University of Alberta Botanic Garden Head of Horticulture

Dandelions are edible and high in nutritional value (vitamins, minerals and fiber).
All parts of the plant (flower, leaf, stem, and roots) can be eaten cooked or raw.
The roots can be dried, ground, and used to make tea.
Dandelions are available as packaged herbal supplements
(capsules, extracts, oils, and tinctures).
Dandelions contain high levels of the antioxidant beta-carotene and polyphenols.

Other Potential Health Benefits from Dandelions:
Reduce cholesterol
Regulate blood sugar
Reduce inflammation
Lower blood pressure
Aid weight loss
Reduce cancer risk
Boost the immune system
Helps relieve mild constipation

Five ways to consume Dandelions:
  1. Dandelion green salad
  2. Sauteed Dandelion greens (cooking eliminates some of the bitter taste) 
  3. Dandelion fritters
  4. Baking with Dandelion petals
  5. Dandelion root tea (and coffee substitute)

Dandelion tea acts as a diuretic and increases urine output.
It has also been used to improve appetite and soothe minor digestive ailments.

Dandelions have low toxicity and are safe for most people.

WARNING! Dandelion can cause an allergic reaction!
People with allergies to other plants like ragweed may also be allergic to Dandelions.
And people with sensitive skin may experience contact dermatitis (a rash or hives).
Other side effects include stomach discomfort, diarrhea, and/or heartburn

WARNING! Dandelions may interact badly with some medications (especially diuretics and antibiotics)! If using prescription medications, consult a healthcare provider before using Dandelions.
