    Style A key factor to planning a marquee wedding is the style of marquee you're looking for, there are many styles to choose from. Conventional Style... rectangular marquee houses maximum number of guests in given amount of space, remember occupancy decrease if circular tables are used instead of rectangular tables.

  • How to grow veggies in poor conditions

    Farming in the slums

    Growing up in the slums is difficult many are destined a life of crime and some kids are taught to steal and hustle from an early age. Getting food is always a struggle as nobody has much money making it difficult to eat and to find money for other necessities. In Kibera which is located near Kenya and is one of the largest slums in Africa they seem to have found a solution to this food crisis. In the heart of the slum they are using unusual farming methods in order to survive. As the soil quality in the slums is poor because of lack of nutrients in the ground it makes it nearly impossible to grow produce there, the residents of Kibera have adopted the sack method of growing.

Bay leaves have a pungent bitter taste when eaten whole and if eaten whole can be a choking hazard and could even get stuck in the digestive system so its best to take them out of your cooking before eating.
