Garden Your Way to Better Health
You'll stretch and strengthen muscles while promoting cardiovascular health and maintaining bone mass. A University of Arkansas study found that yard work as well as weight training more significantly maintained bone density than aerobics, dancing or bicycling in women over 50.
And for those of us trying to lose weight, add 30 minutes of gardening to your daily or weekly routine to help shed some extra pounds. A half hour of raking burns 162 calories, weeding 182, and turning the compost pile a whopping 250 calories. Gardening several times a week will help keep you and your landscape looking its best. Anytime I can receive double or triple the benefit from my time and energy, the more likely I am to complete the task.Sign Up for E-News
Protect your joints and muscles while gardening. Warm up, just as you would for any workout, with a few simple stretches. Protect your knees by using a stool, kneeling pad or one legged kneel (keeping your other foot flat on the ground and back straight) instead of squatting.
And no matter what shape you are in, drink lots of fluids to stay hydrated during and after you finish gardening. This is especially important with the extreme temperatures we are experiencing this summer. Try gardening early in the morning or evening when temperatures are a bit cooler. And time your work in garden beds when they're blanketed in shade.
Protect both your eyes and skin from... Sep 8, 2017
Plant of the Week: Russelia equisetiformis
Arkansas and beyond. We hope you'll enjoy our extensive archive of his works and return each week to see what's new.Plant of the Week: Red Firecracker Fern, Coral FountainI’m always delighted when a hummingbird buzzes by my patio in search of sweet nectar. They find me more out of desperation than design, for I don’t do anything special to attract them. Next year I think I will try to be more thoughtful by planting Red Firecracker Fern or Coral Fountain (Russelia equisetiformis) in my patio planters.Red Firecracker Fern is not a real fern but a member of the old snapdragon family that has, due to the mysteries of DNA-based classification, had many of its members inexplicably transferred to the plantain family. There are about 50 species of Russelia described from tropical America but only three are listed for sale. This species is native throughout tropical parts of Mexico to Guatemala.Coral fountain is a common name that gives a good description of the plant. It is a subshrub that grows about five feet tall and wide with a much-branched stemmy persona that cascades into a mound of branches tipped with tubular, coral-colored flowers. In really bright sunlight the stems and scaly leaves take on a reddish hue.The stems are square and green with the leaves reduced to quarter inch long scale-like bracts. The plant branches freely as it grows, producing smaller and smaller branches as it radiates out from the central mass of the plant. The smaller outer ... (Harrison Daily (subscription))Jul 27, 2017
Hints from Heloise: Today's Sound Off -- late isn't great
I only hope this will give others who are never on time a chance to think about how it affects others." -- Charlotte F., Hot Springs, ArkansasFast factsDear Readers: Here are some hints for repurposing old books:Stack up several volumes to make a side table by a chair.Create a multilayered wall collage with pages from any book.Hollow out the inside of the pages and hide valuables in there, then place on a bookshelf.Cut pages into strips and glue to a lampshade for a "novel" look for your lamp. -- HeloiseTeaching timeDear Heloise: I work part time as a substitute teacher in an elementary school. It saddens me to see bright 6- and 7-year-old kids who are having trouble doing simple math.One pupil was having trouble counting by 10. To help at home, it would be a fun game while, say, preparing dinner to practice counting by 10 with Mom. And start with a number like 6: 6, 16, 26, 36, 46, etc.I know that every family is different and time is at a premium, but this can be a fun way to teach your kids math. -- Theresa J. in TexasDear Heloise: I use a facial mask that is wonderful and all-natural. It works well on nearly everyone I know:Grind 5 tablespoons of oatmeal in a blender or food processor until it's a coarse powder.Add 1 tablespoon of honey.Add 2 tablespoons of plain nonfat yogurt.Add 1 egg yolk, optional.Mix everything together and apply to your face for 30 minutes in order to achieve best results. If you have time, lie down and relax during this treatment. Everything in this mixture is designed to brighten the skin, remove dead skin... (Lompoc Record)Jun 29, 2017
