Another garden hint: Make a biodegradable seed starter pot: Take a 1/2 of your orange, after removing the fruit, fill with dirt and a seed. Free seed start pot that can be planted right into the garden. The orange peel will break down so you don’t need to worry about removing your plants before planting them in your garden. You’ll want to do fast growing seeds in these so you don’t have a lot of mold on your peels before you plant them. But remember one thing, if you’re hoping to get worms into your garden, don’t use too many citrus starters because this could repel them.

All you is a little bit of zest to punch up the flavor in salads, stews, grilled meat, and cocktails. Learn how by reading more here and watching the video: http://ow.ly/peWv30i4y3i

Fire ants were once only a problem in the southeastern United States. They now range as far away as California. If you've ever come in contact with a nest, you're familiar with their burning painful bites. (It can make wearing flip-flops in the summer a real hazard). An organic alternative to poisons for getting rid of these pests to make a solution of ground citrus rinds. The d-limonene in the rinds is toxic to fire ants. Read more here: http://ow.ly/g6c030i4xU0

Question: Can dogs eat oranges? The answer is yes, they can as the natural sugars in combination with the fiber present in an orange are safe. Keep the portions to 1/4 to 1/3 of a whole medium orange for small dogs. Larger dogs can eat an entire one. http://ow.ly/ilAV30i4Cjg

Citrus has a positive impact on Florida's environment. A modern grove design allows for large areas of undeveloped land, providing an excellent wildlife habitat and a natural buffer between farmlands and urban development. University of Florida researchers recently observed more than 159 native species of wildlife within grove ecosystems. Research shows that for every acre of mature trees, 16.7 tons of oxygen is produced per year.
