Carmen - sending you prayers for a speedy recovery fo DD. My sister has a medically fragile child and we dread the winters because she always ends up in the hospital. She is just out and recovering nicely. Hope your DD comes home soon.
HeatherB - I told my husband about your post and he is out getting me Epsom Salts right now! I am passing on the Apple Cider Vinegar because the smell can trigger MS. The sweetie volunteered to go and get some for me. Thank you for giving us the idea!
We only have less than one acre but want to put in some fruit trees. We are in Baltimore, MD and still need to research what will work in our area. We will do some veggies also. My husband is more familiar with that because his father always grew vegetables in the yard. Anyone of you farmer-moms have any notion of what fruits grow well in Baltimore?
If you have a chance go to your local county Ag extension office and talk with the folks in the Master Gardener program. They have lots of stuff for your area specifically.
