The Jojoba plant (pronounced “ho-ho-ba”) produces valuable seeds that can be rendered into a helpful oil, and it is one of few plants that thrive in the deserts where drought is common. Its woody branches can brighten up sparse, dry landscaping and it has been used by Native Americans for a variety of purposes for centuries.

I grew up on a small farm and spent my youth riding horses competitively and gnawing on fresh vegetables from our garden. I moved away, went to college and spent time working in customer service, but the taste of fresh vegetables is kind of addicting. Our small farm has expanding gardens, a small flock of chickens, two geese, and is growing every season.
