About Eggs

The fresher an organic egg, the longer its shelf life. Look for cloudy egg whites, and discard any with a pinkish color. You should also discard any egg with a bad odor, as it is a sign of potential spoilage. Make sure to look for cracks before you bring the carton home!

Your Iowa Food Forest

Your garden can supply an abundance of food – seeds, nuts, fruits and more compromise a “food forest”.   A food forest is a multi-layered composition of food-producing plants.  It is ideally low-maintenance and produces a wealth of edibles.

Want to eat more organic food? A food forest is a great way to do that.

Permaculture design identifies seven layers in a food forest, from the tallest trees in the canopy continuing down below the soil layer.

There are many varieties of plants that are routinely available in Iowa garden centers, including a few examples below.

The silver buffaloberry requires between 15 and 20 inches of rain per annum. It is Native to IA.

The silver buffaloberry has a Late Spring bloom period. Propogated by Bare root, Container, Seed, the fruit/seed period of the silver buffaloberry lasts from Summer to Fall.

Surviving in temperatures above -38°F, the silver buffaloberry is in the Oleaster family. It’s scientific name is Shepherdia argentea, and it has a Medium drought tolerance.

While a plant may be listed as fruit-bearing in Iowa, you might not have the best growing conditions in your specific area.

Talking to your local garden supplier is a great way to learn more about the plants, shrubs and ground species that will be the perfect fit for your new food forest.
