Juniper Berry Benefits: Growing ConditionsJuniper Berry Benefits: Growing Conditions

Juniper Berry plants are most common in the Northern Hemisphere and they come in a few different varieties. You can tell these varieties apart by their heights, as they are either one and a half feet tall, four feet tall, six feet tall, or twenty-five feet tall. So, these plants can vary from the sizes of small shrubs to large trees. Since they are similar to conifers, they have needles or scales that are useful for helping the plant survive droughts. But, this means that the Juniper plant can’t handle being over watered. If they have wet soil that doesn’t drain well, they will suffer. So, you should never need to water your plant unless there have been severe drought conditions. Although Junipers prefer acidic soil, they can grow in a variety of soil types. Also, they will prefer to be exposed to full sun.

Juniper Berry Benefits: Harvesting Your Juniper Berries

First, make sure that you do in fact have an edible variety of juniper before you begin your harvest. The most common edible variety of juniper is Juniperus communis, but there are many varieties out there that are poisonous or bitter tasting. After you are sure you have the correct tree, you will want to pick the soft berries that are a blue/black color. Make sure that you don’t pick unripe berries as they won’t dry properly. Then, you can dry your berries by allowing them to set inside at room temperature for approximately three weeks. Once the berries are dried you will need to remove any berries that are brown or have viable entrance holes. These berries will have bugs living inside them. Lastly, you can either use your berries immediately or store them in an airtight jar for up to a year.

Juniper Berry Benefits: Caution for Anyone that has Apple Trees

You may want to hold off on planting a juniper berry tree/shrub if you have an apple tree. There is a fungus that can infect your apple tree called cedar-apple rust. It will begin growing on the juniper trees or shrubs first. Then, the fungus can make its way to any of the apple trees nearby. So, you would be putting your apple trees at risk by planting juniper nearby. However, anyone without apple trees won’t have to worry about this disease transfer.

What are the Benefits of Cornsilk?: Growing ConditionsWhat are the Benefits of Cornsilk?: Growing Conditions

Around here we are no stranger to corn or cornsilk. But, that no surprise as this American staple is perfectly fit for our summer months. Corn stalks love long summer days full of bright sunshine. Also, they need soil slightly acidic and full of nutrients like nitrogen. If the soil is nutrient poor, then you likely will begin to see yellowing leaves. Plus, they need moist soil that is well draining as their roots are close to the surface. Another thing to know about corn is that they use the wind to spread their pollen. So, they should be planted in blocks of at least four rows instead of one long row. This will increase the likelihood of your corn being pollinated and growing correctly.

Another interesting aspect of corn farming is the timing of harvesting. There are three phases of the corn. First, is the milk stage where the fluid inside the corn is similar to milk in consistency. Next, is the dough phase where the kernel gets more solid. Finally, you have the driest stage that is referred to as the black layer stage, as the tip of the corn is black. While the corn could be harvested at this point, waiting a bit longer will help cut down on the drying costs.

If the corn isn’t harvested when it is as dry as possible, then the farmer will need to dry it themselves and that costs money. This drying makes it easier to store the corn for the right time to sell. Also, drying helps make sure the corn stays good through the transportation process. So, transportation can effectively get the corn to where it will be used. So, you will often see what looks like dead corn left drying in the fields before it is time to harvest. However, farmers are actually just about ready to harvest these crops. The only concern is that they are more likely to fall on from the plant before harvesting at this point, especially due to a storm or strong breeze.

What are the Benefits of Cornsilk?: Using Corn for Predicting the Weather

Sometimes animals and plants pick up on the subtle hints that nature provides before we ever could. In this case, plants and animals seem to notice cues that tell them to get prepared for an especially bad winter. So, these organisms will make special preparations that they wouldn’t ordinarily do. While we don’t have enhanced senses, we can pay attention to these organisms to determine whether they think a harsh winter is coming.

One plant that we can pay attention to for signals is corn. According to folklore, corn becomes harder and the husks tighten around the cob when a bad winter is approaching. Since the corn is used to the warm summer weather, a subtle, cold temperature change would lead the corn to want to help protect itself from a harsh winter.
