Moringa

  • MORINGACEAE
    • Moringa oleifera - Horseradish tree {S seeds, spores} The long, bean-like pods are used in soups and curries or made into pickles. Young, mustard flavored leaves, twigs, and flowers are eaten raw in salads, cooked as potherbs, or put in soups and curries. Immature seeds are eaten like peas. Mature seeds, when roasted or fried, are said to resemble peanuts. The pungent root is used as a substitute for horseradish. Young, tender seedlings make an excellent cooked green vegetable. Leaves contain 7010% protein. Tropical Asia, cultivated. (Cornucopia: A Source Book of Edible Plants by Stephen Facciola, p. 136)

      • “The mix of materials or ingredients used for composting is often referred to as a recipe. Composting recipes attempt to provide a balanced amount of carbon (C) and nitrogen (N). If there is too little nitrogen, composting takes place slowly. However, too much nitrogen creates ammonia gas, leading to nitrogen loss. A ratio of 20 to 50 parts of carbon to 1 part of nitrogen usually results in relatively rapid composting. Youi can achieve the desired balance by combining the right amounts of carbon-rich and nitrogen-rich ingredients.” (ibid p. 12)
      • “In backyard composting, it is not practical to follow a precise recipe. Perhaps the easiest approach is to think of organic carbon sources as 'browns' and organic nitrogen sources as 'greens,' and then combine brown and green ingredients in rough proportions. A mix of 2 to 3 volumes of browns to 1 volume of greens often produces a C:N ratio in the 20:1 to 50:1 range. Examples of brown materials are dried leaves, straw, corn stalks, and woody materials such as paper, sawdust, wood shavings, branches, and shrub trimmings.” (ibid p. 12)

Cattle

    • The Milking Shorthorn breed is the most versatile of all breeds and this is one of its greatest attributes. These docile cows efficiently produce large volumes of nutritious milk each lactation and are large enough to have a high salvage value when their long productive lives finally come to an end. In addition, their healthy calves born each year on regular calving intervals are spunky at birth, grow rapidly, and those not kept for breeding stock and herd replacement make efficient gains and hang very desirable grading carcasses.
    • Albaugh Ranch in Fallon NV raising native purebred shorthorn cattle since 1946.
