Before you teach that we need a lot of antioxidants because oxidants are bad….

consider Charlie Nardozzi’s newsflash from USDA researchers in Maryland. They say we need some of the “bad” oxidants for proper metabolic functioning of our bodies. Whoops! Maybe like a lot of things, we need balance? Anyway, we need to keep up with the blueberries, watermelon, pomegranates — just don’t go crazy. Just got back from Oregon and now I want to find which variety of them do well in the Central Valley of California. One of my student’s parents worked in a blueberry processing factory, so I know they’re out there. Anyway, check out Charlie’s Edible Landscaping newsletter of the National Gardening Association. I just love it. So many great ideas.  www.garden.org/ediblelandscaping/?page=201108-charlie-says
