If you’re not really the gardening type but enjoy some fresh salsa in the summer, consider growing a salsa garden! Salsa is made from tomatoes, peppers, cilantro and onions. Salsa can be chilled, heated, chopped or blended. It's a great snack that’s low in calories and fat.

If your space is limited, or you don’t feel like digging up a large portion of your yard, a salsa garden can be grown in pots on the porch or in your side yard. Make sure that it will receive plenty of sunshine during the day – at least six hours.

Every year on March 17 Americans drag out their shamrocks, ‘kiss me I’m Irish’ shirts and prepare for the annual consumption of green beer.

The festivities are a celebration of Saint Patrick, a patron saint of Ireland who is believed to have died on March 17 in the year 493. He’s best known for ministering Christianity in Ireland and ridding the country of snakes.

Just because your family roots originate elsewhere, doesn’t mean you can’t join in on the fun.

I get a little giddy when February ends and March begins. March symbolizes the end of winter. January and February are cold, drab and seem to last forever. I especially love when we spring forward and the days get longer.

Even though it is officially March, we are on the brink of yet another snowstorm (hopefully, our last). So, let’s start dreaming of warmer days with warm temperatures and sunshine. When we can enjoy time with some friends at a bonfire or sip a drink on the back porch.
