Hi Arlena, I recently saw you with Judy Clark when you were working on Fairy Gardens. You had a terrarium on the show that looked like a mini hot house. I was wondering where you bought it as it was perfect for what I was looking for. Thanks Cathy

Wow, cannot believe we just planted our vegies in 2015. Lots of tomatoes. Love the idea of dehydrating them. Looked at the dehydrators on your website and am enthused about buying one. I'm thinking about making the pumpkin butter as well. Thanks.

Howdy, Arlena. It's summer 2012 and my corn, squash, cucumbers and tomatoes keep on growing. I am still using frozen whole tomatoes from last year's garden for my pasta dishes. Just bought a large package of sweet Italian sausages to add to my sauce. Have a great summer!

Howdy, Arlena. Wrote you this last July but December 18, 2011, is upon us and I wanted to wish you and your family a very Merry Christmas. California is nice and crisp and we expect some rain today and tomorrow. You surely have snow in your area of the Country right now. Hopefully my health will be much better for spring gardening. I'm looking forward to lots of planting. Right now, we are savoring our Italian tomatoes which I used in my borsch yesterday. I make Russian molokan borsch taught to me by my inlaws. Our tomatoes are also used in our pasta but during winter I really enjoy all types of soups. I plan to learn the easy won ton soup as well.

Hi Arlena, I'm hoping that you can help me.....I have a bird bath and can't keep it clean. Last year my husband put a very little javex in the water and this did keep it clean but because the water splashed out the leaves on the plants below fell off....the plants came back this year but I was wondering if there was something I could put into the water on a regular basis to keep it clean....

Howdy, Arlena. What can I say? I'm in California but was also raised on a farm in the Bear Creek area in Merced County on the way to Yosemite. I have many wonderful childhood memories. I truly enjoy your website and there is lots to read up ahead. I love your videos where you interview farmers. I'm still looking at the feller that sells organic seeds as I plan to get some. Although I'm not back east, keep those videos coming as I plan to look at them as time goes on. I'm really impressed with all of your work.

Arlena, I saw your cooking show for the first time today and thought it was great. However, from now on when cooking would you please pull your hair back and not wear long sleeved tops as it all appeared to be falling into the food, which, as we all know is a turn off.

Hello Jayne Thank you for writing. No Azaleas are not Edible. There are a lot of edible flowers and many sites that have larger lists than mine. I would of course search any flower before adding it to the menu. Defiantly NOT an Azalea. I would love to send you those copies. Green Blessings Arlena

Hi, I love your website Garden Wise with Arlena. I brought in a stem of my azaela plants that are now in bloom and my cat ate the flower off of it. Are azaela flowers an edible flower? Are the only edible flowers the ones you listed on your webside or are there more. I would love a copy of the shows on edible flowers and cooking with herbs and making dipping oil with fresh herbs. Thank you so much for your time, Jayne

Spring is coming will you be doing anything fun with bulbs? Thanks Linda

Sometimes I tape the shows so I can come home to watch you doing something crazy. Lots of my friends think I'm crazy, it's fun and exciting to see what you do next. Your fan, Stacie
