Botanical Dictionary

Do you need help understanding something like this: "...Jovibarba have flowers with six erect yellow petals with fimbriate margins. The rosettes form caespitose clumps or branch dichotomously in Jovibarba huefelli or produce easily detached globose plantlets (tumblers) in the leaf axils in the rest of the species."?

Drowning In Tomatoes? Try Something Different This Year.

 

If you’re a home gardener about to drowned in tomatoes rolling in off the vines and demanding to be consumed before they go bad, hang on. Here comes a life preserver.


I chop up a small bowlful of fresh very ripe tomatoes, add chopped red onion or scallions, minced garlic, chopped fresh basil, and extra-virgin olive oil.  I sometimes add Kalamata olives. I make this dish in the morning and let it set on the kitchen table all day. By evening meal time, the flavors have melded nicely, and I serve it over hot cooked spaghetti noodles and top it with fresh grated parmesan for an easy meal on a hot summer day.
