Flu Update
 
As most of you know, our flu vaccine was routed to the Deptartment of Health to be distributed through Dallas Co. Health Dept. You can call them for a schedule of vaccination clinics at 214-819-2100.

There are many herbal-enzyme-vitamin combos that can help you during the flu season. If you are unable to get a flu shot, maybe we can help keep you from getting it so badly. At the time of writing this, we have Flu Mist for ages 5-49 who are healthy.

As of November 1, 2004, Flu Vaccine Company is distributing some vaccine to area doctors. Please check with yours for their status. Will not affect Gibson Pharmacy's status.
 
WE WOULD LIKE TO BE YOUR PHARMACY AND WELCOME THE OPPORTUNITY TO FILL YOUR PRESCRIPTIONS

Planning Ahead
 
The price of feeding a family keeps going up, doesn't it? And the price of organic-grown (free of pesticides, etc) is even higher! Gary and I grew up on a farm and both sets of our parents had gardens. As a result, we have one in our backyard too. Our garden this year fed us our vegetables all summer. The garden for next year starts going in on January 15. We put in our onions, potatoes, and other in-ground items then so we start preparing in December. Our garden is an "above" ground garden. This year, we had the following items in our garden, standard-size yard for Grand Prairie, placed mostly in flower beds around the fence.

Tomatoes
Potatoes
Sweet Potatoes
Collard Greens
Sage - 3 kinds
Fennel
Echinacea
Gotu Kola
Rose Hips
Stevia
Marigolds
Cinnamon Basil
Corn
Asparagus
Oregano
Onions
Strawberries
Okra
Dill
Green Beans
Catnip
Garlic
Chamomile
English Peas
Rhubarb
Cucumbers
Peppers - 4 Kinds
Lettuce - 3 Kinds
Radishes - 3 Kinds
Cabbage
Watermelon
Chives
Mint - 4 Kinds
Lemon Balm
Sheep Sorell
Blackeye Peas
Lavender

A lot of these are put up for this winter - either dried or frozen. If this is something you'd be interested in, we'd be happy to show what we've learned through time. And yes, I do have a life outside my garden. It doesn't have to take up all your time to be helpful to the old budget.
