It's the peak of the strawberries this week, and last week is probably the last week for them, so get them now while they're hot!!! There will be Mitchell's strawberry ice cream at Shaker Square, and strawberry short cakes at Crocker Park. But what else? Onions and zucchinis/squash are in! Listen to the MP3 below, or on-air this morning, and you'll here Donita Anderson talk about an onion tarte-- here's a recipe we found on our Pinterest page that you might like to try!
Seal your heating and cooling ducts! Ducts that move air to and from a forced air furnace, central air condition or heat pump are often big energy wasters. Sealing and insulating ducts can improve the efficiency of your heating and cooling system by as much as 20% or more. Focus first on sealing ducts that run through the attic, crawlspace, unheated basement, or garage. Use duct sealant (mastic) or metal-backed (foil) tape to seal the seams and connections of ducts. After sealing the ducts in those spaces, wrap the ducts in insulation to keep them from getting hot in the summer or cold in the winter. Next, seal ducts that you can access in the heated or cooled part of the house.
