Something to Crow About

Duane Campbell wrote us last year that he germinated rice seeds bought at his local health food store. He used the paper towel method of sprouting sprouts. The seeds developed a pedicel but, unfortunately, he let them dry out.

A Tip for the Environment

Those of us who use computers and printers produce a hazardous waste with our ink cartridges. Special recycling envelopes are available at the post office or business supply centers. You simply put your cartridges in the already addressed and stamped envelope and drop them in the mail.
