Garden Thyme: Citronella Mosquito Plant

Do you have a backyard, terrace, or other outdoor space? Constantly getting bitten by mosquitos? The citronella mosquito plant is great for the summer. Have you ever thought about where the “citronella” in citronella candles come from?

Colleen’s Banana Bread

Colleen’s Banana Bread

My sister made some delicious banana bread at Christmas last year, and again about a month ago. Last week, some of our bananas didn’t make it though the heat wave here in the city, so Fatima thought we should make some banana bread. So I called my sister and requested her recipe.

If you yourself have a black dog, by the way, Fred still needs models…
