One of her most popular products are her organic vegetable seedlings,
especially the tomatoes, which are cool-weather
varieties that do well on California's foggy Central Coast. Native plants or at least plants adapted to similar conditions as your region will have a better chance of growing and thriving. Wood can be used as long as it's not treated with chemicals.

After application the hair is simply dried, either naturally or using a drier.
Likewise, using imported shampoos and conditioners from a tropical country when your climate
is cold and temperate is not such a good idea.
Generally, these products are more expensive than their watered-down counterparts, but you
can find a few affordable pure silicone hair products (see below).
