PRAIRIE FARE: USE MODERN PROCESSES WHEN CANNING
Older canning recipes and procedures usually are not safe to use.

By Julie Garden-Robinson, food and nutrition specialist
NDSU Extension

Sometimes when I do food preservation training, people talk about using their great-grandparents’ “time-tested canning recipes.” Some of the recipes are still safe but others make the hair on the back of my neck stand on end.
I believe our hard-working ancestors would want us to follow the innovations that came with time and research. Most of us do not routinely drive Model T’s of our grandparent’s era on the highway these days. (Pixabay photo)

DAKOTA GARDENER: TREE-BASED NAMES ON THE PRAIRIE
For a prairie state, there are a surprising number of tree-based place names in North Dakota.
• More than 50 townships in North Dakota have some sort of tree-based name. By Joe Zeleznik, Forester - NDSU Extension
I’ve always found North Dakota’s place names to be confusing. The city of Hettinger is not in Hettinger County. Nor is Steele found in Steele County. But Grand Forks is in Grand Forks County and Pembina is in Pembina County. I can’t keep track of it.
• Places are sometimes named for nearby natural features. Though Mountain is a little bit higher than the nearby Red River Valley, it’s not nearly as high as the neighboring Pembina Hills. Where’s the nearest butte to Butte, in northeastern McLean County? (NDSU photo)

DAKOTA GARDENER: COMPOST OVERLOAD
Composting reduces waste and allows us to return nutrients to the soil that can be used again in the growing cycle.

By Carrie Knutson, Horticulture Agent
NDSU Extension – Grand Forks County

My garbage bin composting system keeps up with my kitchen waste during the winter and spring. During the summer it is a different story. From faded peony flowers to strawberry hulls from making strawberry jam, the system just can’t keep up with the amount of material.
I use a modified version of pit composting during the summer to help spread out the work. There are many different versions of pit composting. (NDSU photo)

BE AWARE OF DITCH HAYING DANGERS
Safe Practices Can Mitigate The Dangers Of Haying Ditches.
As the 2022 haying season is in full swing, North Dakota State University Extension farm and ranch safety coordinator Angie Johnson urges farmers and ranchers to put safety first when haying ditches.
“Precipitation has greatly improved the 2022 hay crop, but in some areas, excessive moisture has been a challenge,” says Johnson. “The increase in surface and subsoil moisture means producers who cut, rake and bale road ditch hay have to watch out for water in the ditches that could lead to dangerous washouts, exposed culverts and soft spots.”

Start the day off right by adding fruits and veggies to your breakfast! Not only do fruits and veggies add a pop of color to your morning but they also add a level of nutrition that can't be beat. Try adding greens like spinach or kale to smoothies (as well as your favorite fruit). Peppers, onions and spinach will become best friends with your eggs ;) Try adding fruits like berries to pancakes or muffins. Fresh, frozen or dried all count towards your goal.

Speaking of goals.....do you know the recommendation for the amount of fruits and veggies you should eat each day?
