10 Tips on Controlling Dog Shedding

You can definitely tell the weather is warming up around here, because Lucy is totally shedding.  If this were a farm, and she was losing her winter coat, that would be one thing, but she’s shedding All.Over.The.House.  The HH bought Lucy a new brush, shampoo, and treats to help manage this hairy situation {ha!} and I know he secretly must really like her, although he would probably deny it in public.

dog hair

I have actually called all of my friends and neighbors telling them not to wear black to my house, for fear they will leave visibly covered in dog hair.  I’m sure you already know, but all I wear is black–so we have a real situation on our hands.  I looked up a couple of ways to control the shedding, turns out you can’t really stop it, but there are a couple of ways to minimize it’s effects:

  1. Brush your dog regularly, with a brush that is designed to deal with shedding.  That’s easy enough.  I think I’ll take Lucy onto the back patio and give her a daily brush to remove excess hair.  She’ll probably love it anyway.  Or better yet, maybe I’ll talk Andy the Plant Whisperer into doing it for me.
  2. Make sure your dog is not having an allergic reaction to something outside or their food.  {I’m pretty sure this is not the case with Lucy, but I thought it was worth mentioning.}
  3. Provide a fatty acid supplement.  Bonus:  it improves the shine and look of their coat as well.
  4. Vacuum frequently.  I know, duh!  But staying on top of the situation is key.
  5. Keep a lint roller close to their bedding.  It’s easier to deal with the hair when it’s newly shed than after it has had a chance to work its way down into the fabric.
  6. Put a blanket down in the the back of the car if your dog rides in the car.  It’s easier to shake the blanket out and wash it than it is to obsessively vacuum your car.
  7. Give your dog occasional baths using a soothing doggie wash.  It helps remove excess hair and soothes their skin, if it is irritated.
  8. That old saying, “you are what you eat” applies to dogs too.  Make sure to give them a highly digestible protein.  Healthy Treats that encourage your dog to sit still while you groom them are super helpful.
  9. If money is not really a concern, take your pet to the groomers.  They can give your pet a summer do that helps to minimize the effects of shedding.
  10. If shedding lasts longer than 2 weeks, it’s probably time to head to the vet.  Occasionally, shedding is an indication something is medically wrong with your pet.

How do you control your pet’s shedding this time of year?

raised garden beds

This year I’m on a mission to grow 4,000 pounds of fresh fruits and vegetables in my suburban backyard. In 2012 I was able to grow 2,028 pounds, and in 2013 I’m going double or nothing. I have absolutely no idea if I’ll be able to achieve my goal. But, as with any adventure, half the fun is getting there.   ~Mavis

*******

endive lettuce

This week we harvested a boatload of radishes, 6 heads of lettuce, peas, strawberries, chives, indoor sprouts and collected 74 eggs.  26+ pounds of veggies plus eggs! Holy cow things are starting to look up.

Because we had house guests, the Mother Earth News Fair and several garden tours, I didn’t get much done in the garden this past week. But, the weather is suppose to be awesome all week {in the 70′s} so I’ll be out there attempting to get a tan and planting some seeds.

The pumpkins and winter squash need to get planted as well as another round of beets, beans  and lettuce.

The fun never stops!

~Mavis

Here is what I have harvested so far this year:

fresh organic  basil

Basil – 7 ounces

We started more basil seeds in the greenhouse gutters last week and I can’t wait. I LOVE making fresh pesto.

beets

Beets - 14 ounces

bok choy leaves

Bok Choy – 4 oz

Check out this Asian Noodle Salad with Bok Choy I made. It’s pretty awesome.

carrots

Carrots – 3 ounces

chives

Chives – 10 ounces

fresh eggs

Egg Count – 1,317

We collected  74 eggs this past week. Coo-Coo and Piggey are still sitting on eggs, waiting for babies to hatch. They are seriously missing out on some good veggie scraps!

pallet gardening endive

Lettuce – 12 pounds 4 ounces

This past week we harvested 6 heads of endive and tonight I am planning on harvesting the rest of the freckles romaine for a salad. The wood pallet garden is going to look a little depressing for awhile until we can get some more stuff planted and germinating.

microgreens

Microgreens 5 ounces

I need to grow some more of these. My favorite way to eat microgreens is with egg salad sandwiches.

oregano container herb garden

Oregano - 2 ounce

fresh sugar snap peas

Peas – 7 ounces

Sometimes it’s really, really hard to get a basket of sugar snap peas in to the house. The Girl and I picked a bunch last night and immediately weighed them. What you see is what made it to the back door after snacking on them for a few minutes.

To me, fresh peas and strawberries, feel like the beginning of summer.

potatoes

Potatoes – 2 pounds 9 ounces

french breakfast radish

Radish - 21 pound5 13 ounces

We have just enough radishes left for a salad and then they’ll all be gone! Eeeek! I totally forgot to plant more. Now I’ll have to add that to the list.

fresh organic spinach

Spinach – 3 ounces

grow your own sprouts

Sprouts -1 pound11 ounces

Here are instructions for growing your own sprouts.

strawberries

Strawberries 9 ounces

Rainbow-Swiss-Chard-picture

Swiss Chard 12 ounces

cut-wheatgrass

Wheatgrass - 7 ounces

Total Food Harvested in 2013: 54 pounds 14 ounces

Total Eggs Collected in 2013: 1,317

If you are new to gardening or just want to learn more on the topic of organic gardening, my #1 favorite book is The Gardener’s A-Z Guide to Growing Organic Food By Tanya L.K. Denckla.

What Should I Make For Dinner?

dig-for-your-dinner
Every once in awhile someone will ask “Hey Mavis, it doesn’t look like you are buying very much food. What are you feeding your family? Rocks? We want pictures. Oh, and can you post a weekly menu plan too?”

The thing is, I don’t do a weekly menu plan. Which is weird because I have total OCD and you would think anyone with OCD would have a menu plan. Right?

Maybe I don’t like commitment, maybe I’m lazy, or maybe I just don’t like to be bound to a piece of paper telling me what to make on any given day of the week because like most of you, we are a busy family with kids in sports, vacations on the calendar and work deadlines.

For me, gardening is a full time hobby, and I strive to feed my family as many healthy, minimally processed foods as I can, but I am human. Sometimes I’m just to tired to make dinner and crawl under the covers and go to bed. Or lock myself in the bathroom and take a two hour bath so I can read the latest book I’ve ordered off Amazon. {FYI I’m reading the Bucolic Plague right now}. In that case, then its a MYOD night {make your own dinner}.

Other times I’ll toss something in the crock pot at noon and forget about dinner until my husband walks through he door and says “What’s the deal? Are you going to feed us tonight or what?”

Then there are the days when I spend a good 6 hours cooking 8 different things to eat throughout the week. So although there is always something to eat when it come’s to dinner time, it’s just not written down or planned out.

So even though I didn’t write everything down, here are some of the meals we ate {that I remembered to photograph} over the last 2 weeks.

waffles and eggs

Waffles and Eggs – We eat this combo for both breakfast and dinner.

breakfast oatmeal

Oatmeal with brown sugar and milk. I purchased 50 pounds of oats for $19 back in January and we still have at least 35 pounds left.

scrambled eggs

Eggs. Eggs. Eggs. When you have a flock of 15 backyard chickens, you are bound to eat eggs at least once a day. In some shape or form.

Raisin Bran Muffins recipe

Raisin bran muffins, or any kind of muffin in general is pretty awesome if you ask me. Save yourself some time and make a double or triple batch and freeze them.Then you won’t have to make them as often.

Rhubarb Walnut Muffins

Rhubarb walnut muffins.

Bagel and cream cheese

Bagels and cream cheese. Yes please! I typically purchase bagels from our local bakery outlet for a buck a bag.

tuna cassarole

Tuna Casserole – My husband LOVES this recipe!

chicken chili

Southwest chicken chili – Does anyone want the recipe? Let me know and I’ll share it.

BBQ Chicken Drumsticks

BBQ chicken – That would be chicken + 1 bottle of BBQ sauce. ;)

beans and weenies 

While I was away, the Handsome Husband made dinner. Beans and weenies. Go.Fight.Win.

hot dogs

He also made weenies and apple slices. I’m so disappointed I missed it.

chicken and corn

Corn plus 9 pieces of chicken. What the? Do all these people weigh like 100 pounds?

plate of spaghetti

Spaghetti. Ahhh now this is something we eat about once a week {or more}. I typically like to make a double batch and refrigerate the rest because spaghetti makes a great after school snack.

Asian Noodle Salad

Asian noodle salad with bok choy. The best freakin’ stuff on earth.

Butter-Glazed Radishes

Butter glazed radishes.

Sugar Snap Peas with Garlic

Sugar snap peas with garlic.

radish coleslaw recipe

Radish Coleslaw. Or is it cole slaw? Hmm

fruit salad

Fruit salad thanks to Mr. Produce Guy.

plate of cookies

The best chocolate chip cookies on the planet. Want the recipe?

line jello

Lime Jell-O. I have a boatload of this stuff leftover from my extreme couponing days and I”m not going to toss it. Every once in awhile I’ll make jello and pour it into serving dishes and place in the refrigerator. The kids pretty much always flip out when they spot it and it’s gone in about 10 seconds.

Clearly this is not everything we ate, but I think we are pretty normal.

How about YOU? Do you make a weekly or dare I say MONTHLY menu plan? Are you able to stick with it, or do you live on the edge like me and just make what ever you can think of.

Mavis wants to know.

Strawberry Rhubarb Crumb Pie

Strawberry Rhubarb Crumb Pie

Last week when the HH brought home a giant box of rhubarb I didn’t have the time to process it all so I have a bunch to my neighbor Hulda. Luckily her mom was in town and guess what? She made 2 pies. Luckily my neighbor shared and I was able to get a slice of both of them. They were both delicious, but this strawberry rhubarb crumble pie was my favorite.

The recipe comes from Taste of Home and let me tell you Bob, it was good!

Ingredients

3 cups chopped rhubarb, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
1 egg
1 cup sugar
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 pint fresh strawberries, halved
1 unbaked pie shell {my favorite pie crust recipe}

Crumb Topping

2/3 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup oats {quick-cooking or old-fashioned oats}
1/2 cup cold butter, cubed

chopped rhubarb

Directions

Pre heat oven to 375 degrees

In a large bowl, beat the egg, sugar, flour and vanilla together until well blended. Fold in the rhubarb and strawberries and pour into your pie shell.

In a small bowl mix together the flour, brown sugar and oats and butter until the ingredients clump together a bit. Sprinkle the topping mix evenly over the filling.

Bake for 30- 35 minutes until the crust is golden brown and the strawberry rhubarb filling is bubbling. Cool for at least 1 hour before serving.

how to make water balloon flip flops

Over the weekend The Girl Who Thinks She’s a Bird made herself a pair of water balloon flip flops. She loved them so much she decided to make a pair for bff as well.

I thought maybe some of you might be interested as these water balloon flip flops would be a super fun summer craft for any teen girl to make this summer on one of those “Mom, I’m so bored” days. ;)

water balloons

You need about 100 water balloons per flip flop. My daughter was lucky and found everything she needed at the dollar store. She spent $3 for a set of cute flip flops and 2 packs of water balloons.

how to make water balloon flips

Grab four water balloons. Have 3 water balloons going in one direction {ends together} and use the 4th water balloon to tie the other 3 water balloons to the flip flop strap.

DIY how to make water balloon flip flops

A double knot is recommenced.

Keep tying water balloons to the flip flop strap until you can no longer see the strap. If needed you can slide the balloons around a little to make sure the entire strap is covered.

JBLM Community Gardens and Planting Peas with Preschoolers

children's garden tacoma

Yesterday was Ryan’s last day here in the lovely Pacific Northwest so we headed out early and checked out a few more local gardens.

We ended up making a bean teepee and planting pumpkin seeds with some local preschoolers in their children’s garden. Oh my word I had forgotten how funny little kids can be.

ryan botanical interests

Ryan did a great job talking to the group of 30 kids and when he asked what the children’s favorite vegetables to eat were they surprised us with their answers. Cabbage, broccoli, beans, carrots {of course} and bean sprouts.

How many 4 year old kids do you know that eat bean sprouts? I thought it was awesome.

JBFL Community Garden Mavis butterfield Ryan

Then after planting beans and pumpkins with preschoolers,  Ryan and I took a trip out to the Joint Base Lewis McCord Community Gardens to donate some seeds and to plant a few raised beds for the troops. Karinna from Coupon Connoisseurs of JBLM invited us to stop by and take a tour so we did.

JBLM Community Garden  mavis ryan miriam holly

The garden has been there since the 1970′s but Miriam {with the baby strapped to her} has been in charge of the gardens for the past few years. The garden beds run $25 a year for an existing bed or $15 for the first year is you just rent a patch of dirt and build your own.

Ryan and I each planted a bed {I planted beans, beets, onions and squash} and Karinna is going to keep them watered and donate the vegetables for us. Pretty cool if you ask me.

JBLM community gardens mavis

Gardeners Holly and Jessica selecting seeds.

bee hive boxes

One of the soldiers over there even has bees! How cool is that? It was a great day and I had a blast showing Ryan around town and checking out the various gardens.

Gardens are cool no matter what size they are, big, small, or in containers. As long as you are having fun and enjoying what you are growing, that’s what it’s all about.

Peace Out Girl Scouts, have a great day. I’m off to go dig in my own dirt.

food waste in America

This past week we found quite a few treats in the fresh produce boxes we picked up from Mr. Produce Guy. Now that summer is right around the corner I have  feeling we’ll be seeing lot’s of watermelon and tropical fruits in the scrap boxes we pick up every week for our backyard chickens.

Slightly bruised pears don’t bother me one bit.

I simply turn them into smoothies. Pineapple + Pears+ Ice = Perfection.

Sugar Snap Peas with Garlic

Unless you planted oddles of pea seeds, chances are if you are picking fresh peas from the garden, they won’t even make it into the house. Or at least that’s how it used to be at our house when are kids were younger.

Well, if by some miracle, your peas do make it inside, this simple {and I do mean simple} recipe for sugar snap peas with garlic, makes a great side dish.

Ingredients
2 cups sugar snap peas
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 clove garlic, minced
1 teaspoon sesame seeds {optional}
salt and pepper to taste

Directions

Blanch sugar snap peas and shock in cold water. Remove the little threads from the pea pods and sauté in olive oil with garlic and salt and pepper for about 2 – 3 minutes and sprinkle sesame seeds over the top.
