Use all your Mayonaisse!

TIP OF THE DAY FOUND AT OAKPARKHATESVEGGIES.COM ( http://oakparkhatesveggies.wordpress.com/ ) when we get to the end of a jar of mayonnaise, i add some warm water, some sea salt, and more garlic powder than i should. i shake it all up, and it makes the best creamy garlic salad dressing ever. not only does this use up the last of the mayo that would never come out of the jar otherwise, but it is a delicious thing to put on salads or cooked veggies. (try it on mashed potatoes -yum!) this is especially good and thrifty if you make your own mayo, because with the amount of time you have invested to make the mayo, you really want to use every single drop.

West Crest P-Patch

Not looking like much now I am thinking this will be a welcome green addition to the area come summer 2013.

Hope everyone is staying warm and fed this winter. Looks like we have a new neighboring community garden to say hello to... West Crest P-Patch. Located in the fabulous Westcrest Park at 8th Avenue Sw and SW Henderson, West Crest known for its expansive Dog Park, was the lucky recipient of the City of Seattle Parks and Green spaces Levy. Open to City of Seattle residents, sign ups for space is now. You can sign through the City of Seattle's P-Patch program.
