Cassie Thompson (Cassie Thompson, #8020) has received a certificate of achievement in Cleaning Up for earning a Beginner Level Recycling Merit Badge!

“I looked up my local recycling center as well as visited it. It's about 30 mins away from my house. They accept cardboard, magazines & newspapers, plastics(#1-5, #7), aluminum & steel cans, glass(clear, green, brown), and used cooking & motor oils.

I'm really grateful that this place exists and that the city manages it as well as they do. It's a bit of a trek to get stuff there, but if you make it a trip when you need to get groceries and such it's actually pretty convenient. I guess that's just how it is when you're a hippie who lives out in the sticks.”

Deborah Mraz (Gijanedoe, #7866) has received a certificate of achievement in Garden Gate for earning a Beginner Level Horse Dreams Merit Badge!

“I've been able to locate several horse farms or stables in my area. I wasn't able to identify any breeds yet, but my favorite is the Quarter horse.

I visited Beracah Valley Farm with a great friend, who has begun taking horse-riding lessons as a bucket list item. Maybe I'll look into taking lessons too. I even found a local stable where I can get free composted horse manure!”

“I have a recipe book that belonged to my grandma that we as a family enjoyed over the years. I also spoked to my aunt and many of my cousins to collect other family favorite recipes.

It was a lot of fun talking about the recipes and the fun times when gathering.”

“So on June 14th we did a zoom dinner and each of us made our favorite meal from our new recipes book. We shared a meal, shared stories, and just enjoyed each other's company.

It was the bomb. I loved it. We want to do another zoom dinner soon.”

Hennie Collazo (Henc, #8068) has received a certificate of achievement in Garden Gate for earning an Intermediate Level Herbs Merit Badge!

“I planted an herb garden to use for cooking. I'm growing basil, mint (planted at far end of yard because I heard it grows like a weed), lemon balm, oregano, lavender, and coriander. Everything is growing ok except coriander. I just got a few plants from the seeds.”

Winnie Nielsen (Red Tractor Girl, #3109) has received certificates of achievement in Outpost for earning the Beginner, Intermediate, and Expert Levels of the Speak for the Trees Merit Badge!

“I combined Levels Beginner and Intermediate together since they both worked on the same tasks. For Beginner level, I ordered a copy of the Peterson Field Guide for Eastern Trees, written by George Petrides in 1998. Like all field guides it has very explicit details of each species with color plates to use when identifying and maps where the species are located. I found this guide to be very helpful in figuring out the differences from trees that look similar. The Florida evergreen oaks are especially tricky to separate.

I combined the tree identification of my yard and neighborhood to include species in the City Park, where I walk daily. All of the trees I identified were native to this area, as shown on the field guide maps and descriptions. I also collected a leaf from each and created a listing of them all in my workbook. Each tree shows the leaf, the scientific name, where the tree was located, and other details of the species. The end result is that I have a nice collection in my workbook that I can use in the future.

The second part of the Intermediate level was to discuss windbreak use in my area. This was a new topic to research and discover. Here is what I found from the University of Florida IFAS extension site. In Florida, windbreaks are used in citrus groves to protect the trees from high wind damage during severe thunder storms or hurricanes. The windbreaks also help preserve the soil from excessive drying out, thus reducing the need for irrigation. The Pine needles also help mulch and suppress weed growth as well.

The most frequently used trees to build a windbreak are Slash Pines and Southern Red Cedars. Pines are usually planted in parallel rows to the Citrus trees about 8 feet apart. The Cedars are planted in a second row about 8 feet apart as well. These two rows leave a path of about 150 feet between the Citrus trees and the windbreak trees. These distances allow for the best strong root systems for both the pine and cedar trees. The Trees are also topped at a height of 21 feet to maximize protection for the Citrus groves.

In other areas of the state, the use of Fallglow and Bamboo trees have been used successfully as windbreakers for Citrus Orchards. In north Florida, the citrus industry has declined since the turn of the 20th Century because of the frequency of below freezing outbreaks and late Spring surprise frosts. While Citrus trees are all over the area, they are now in yards and not grown as part of an industry.

I have a wonderful Satsuma orange tree in my front yard that is currently full of small green orbs basking in the hot and humid Florida sunshine. They love this growing environment where there is plenty of sunshine and water for many months. We should see oranges begin to ripen by the end of November and continue through January.

The Expert Level was completed yesterday at the Hogtown Creek Watershed Park which is directly across the street from the city park near my home. It's a small greenway part that follow along the path of Hogtown Creek meandering towards Possum Creek about 1/2 further South where the two combine. Within this Watershed, one can observe several typical forest layers or a north-central Florida forest.

The creek has a typical flood plain environment because it floods annually with prolonged heavy rains and arrivals of hurricanes. Willow Elms, Florida Maples, and Saw Palmettos thrive along its sandy soils. The park winds into a Hammock area where Live Oaks, more Palmettos, and Red Maples thrive.

Next is the remains of a large sinkhole where the marshy area meets with the flood plain of the creek. There is a walking bridge right over this area so it's easy to see all of the trees and plants that thrive in this sort of humid, wet environment.

Following the sink hole, the forest moves more upward where there us the Upland mixed forest. Here the large deciduous trees like the Hickory, Southern Magnolia, Long Leaf Pine, and Laurel Oaks thrive.

In each layer of the forest, there is a high tree canopy forming much shade. As a result, all of the new growth from sprouting acorns or seeds create dense small growth areas of new trees all trying to reach for the sunlight. The forest floor is full of decaying leaves, small plants, ferns, mosses, and decaying limbs and trees all adding to homes for beautiful mushrooms, various beetles and lots of Mosquitoes!!!!! There was also a continuous chorus of Cicada chirping the entire time. They are always a part of the summer and fall here in north-central Florida.

This was a fun visit and I packed my tree guide, notebook and phone to record and learn about this lovely greenway. While I was there, I saw several young people on bicycles, single walkers like myself, and a few parents with young children. The park contains information boards along the path to explain what is happening in the area and there are a few deck-like structures built out over areas to get a closer look and perhaps photograph something of interest. While I've visited this park in the past, I'd never taken the time to learn about its special features. It was quite interesting and I really enjoyed the challenge of trying to identify more tree species to the growing list I already had.

Doing all three levels of the Outpost Tree Badge was a wonderful summertime learning activity. While pretty much homebound during this pandemic, the badge offered me a way to get outside, walk about, and learn about the many trees in our town. I remember doing a tree badge as a Girl Scout, and making a scrapbooks of trees in 9th grad biology class as a child living in Virginia. Trees have always fascinated me. However, the tree species here in Florida have some of the same trees but many other different species. It was good to finally learn about those big tall friends in my own surroundings!”

“We've eaten organic for 2 months. We went to Costco and got a membership got a membership so we could change over to all organic in our kitchen. I love eating organic. The food has a much better, clean taste.”

Hennie Collazo, (Henc, #8088) has received a certificate of achievement in Farm Kitchen for earning a Beginner Level Food Allergy Awareness Merit Badge!

“Statistically, the rate of new food allergies is 3 million per year. Children under 18 account for between 10% and 3.9% of these. Most common food allergies are cow's milk/dairy, shellfish, nuts, wheat, soy and eggs.

Another interesting fact worth noting: If person takes a spoonful of local honey it cuts down on their seasonal allergies. Never thought of honey helping. Know a lot of kids with allergys. Will mention honey to family.”

Sadie Terpstra-Schwab, (Sadie Terpstra-Schwab, #8118) has received a certificate of achievement in Outpost for earning an Intermediate Level Fishing Merit Badge!

“We Google searched the information and typed up our findings. My daughter also typed up information about the different types of fishing baits and lures!

In researching the Iowa regulations, my daughter and I found it interesting that we could potentially catch a tagged fish. We hadn’t ever thought of that! If we catch one, we are to write down the information and then contact the DNR.

We were also not aware that if we wanted to fish for trout, we would need a specific fishing license. No trout for us!

We also learned that all unused bait must be disposed of in the trash so as not to potentially cause spread of aquatic invasive species.

We also had no idea there were regulations regarding frogs and turtles!

The following fish are native to Iowa: catfish (including Bullheads), minnows (including Carp), trout (only cold water fish in Iowa), sunfish (including Blue Gill, Bass, Crappie), perch (including Walleye), and pike.”

“For the first time in my adult life, I bought a fishing license online. It cost $30. We went fishing and had no luck. We kept getting our line stuck in algae and didn’t catch a thing. We have caught fish before, but not now that we want the merit badge!”

“Adalyn and I looked under the hoods of both of our vehicles and learned where the fluid chambers were. We focused on the windshield wiper fluid and oil. I taught her how to use the dip stick to check the oil level.

It was pretty easy to find everything in our Dodge Caravan, but a bit more tricky in our Kia Sorento. But, we found it all!”

Sadie Terpstra-Schwab, (Sadie Terpstra-Schwab, #8118) has received a certificate of achievement in Make It Easy for earning an Intermediate Level Grease Chicks Merit Badge!

“My dad had purchased an oil syphoner about a year ago and highly recommended that we buy one to use as well. I finally bought one on Amazon this May for about $75.

Adalyn and I changed the oil in both of our vehicles since they were due. It was so easy! Once we figured out how the syphoner worked, we were able to change the oil without any problems! It was so much easier than making an appointment at Wal-Mart and having to drive there on their schedule.

The one small issue we did have, was trying to figure how to reset the Oil Change indicator in the van, we had to search through the manual. Turns out, we had to partially turn the ignition key and then press down on the accelerator three times. It felt like a secret code!”

Sadie Terpstra-Schwab, (Sadie Terpstra-Schwab, #8118) has received a certificate of achievement in Cleaning Up for earning a Beginner Level My Fair Farmgirl Merit Badge!

“I have been making my own chap stick for several years now. It all began when I realized I was spending over a $1.00 per chap stick tube and was addicted. So, I found a Martha Stewart recipe and have been using the same one ever since.

My daughter and I made homemade lotion from coconut oil.

We also researched the meaning of cruelty-free, organic health, parabens, and phthalates.

Although the lotion smelled good, it was a bit too greasy and didn’t really absorb into our skin.

We have since purchased lotion from Mrs. Meyer’s. It's biodegradable, made in the USA, paraben-free, and phthalate-free.

We have also converted to using all Mrs. Meyer’s products for hand soap, dishwasher soap, all-purpose multi-surface cleaner, and bathroom cleaner. Their products are also cruelty-free and efficient. Since our homemade products just didn’t seem to work as well, we thought this was a good compromise.

When we run out of shampoo and conditioner, we plan to explore more organic options.”

Sadie Terpstra-Schwab, (Sadie Terpstra-Schwab, #8118) has received a certificate of achievement in Garden Gate for earning a Beginner Level Bee Good to Your Mother Earth Merit Badge!

“Last summer (2019), I began planning a garden consisting of four raised beds.

I ordered the book, Montrose: Life in a Garden, but found it a bit boring. I'm now reading Second Nature: A Gardener’s Education, by Michael Pollan. It's great so far!

This spring, my son and daughter helped me build the garden boxes and we planted all kinds of things! We have planted tomatoes, zucchini, cucumber, green beans, onions, garlic, beets, radishes, lettuce, spinach, leeks, cabbage, cauliflower, potatoes, carrots, red pepper, ground cherries, and eggplant. All of this in four 4x4 raised gardens, using the Square Foot Gardening method!

We also planted strawberries in containers and a rhubarb plant in the yard. Whew!

We have not used any fertilizers on our garden, but have had to find an organic option for pest control on our rhubarb plant. We mixed yeast, sugar, flour and water into a recyclable butter container and buried it in the dirt next to the rhubarb plant. Between that yeast trap and sand that we spread out along the base of the plant, we have kept slugs away and our plant is thriving!”

“My daughter took Family and Consumer Sciences as an elective this year (7th grade). She learned how to sew in this class and also how to put together a sewing supplies basket. We looked through the one I put together years ago, and it still had everything we needed. We just had to clean it up a bit since it was such a mess!”

“Back story: last summer I accidentally tripped over the power cord to our sewing machine and it crashed to the floor. So, we had to get a new one.

It took my daughter, Adalyn, and I awhile to figure out how to do the stitching our new sewing machine. Anyway, we figured out the various stitches and seams.”

“We sewed a hot pad together, as well as, a waist apron, elastic bookmarks, face masks and sleeping bags for my other daughter’s dolls, and bowl covers. We enjoyed it, but we decided that sewing isn’t really going to be a hobby of ours, just something we do every now and then.”

Sadie Terpstra-Schwab, (Sadie Terpstra-Schwab, #8118) has received a certificate of achievement in Cleaning Up for earning a Beginner Level Water Conservation Merit Badge!

“We did not find any leaks in any of our faucets, but we did learn how to clean the trap below the bathroom sink. It was pretty gross, but we did it!

We realized that when each of us takes a shower, we waste an exorbitant volume of water waiting for it to warm up. So, we bought a trash can and use it to collect the wasted water.

Turns, out, we fill up one trash can per day! This is then used to water our garden, so it works out. That is, unless we get days and days of rain and our tubs outside burst with too much water!”

Sadie Terpstra-Schwab, (Sadie Terpstra-Schwab, #8118) has received a certificate of achievement in Outpost for earning a Beginner Level Rocks and Minerals Merit Badge!

“My youngest daughter wants to be a Geologist, so she wanted to do this merit badge with my oldest daughter and I. We had a great time watching YouTube videos to learn about rocks and minerals, as well as, looking through their myriad of books. My oldest daughter had made a presentation on this topic is fourth grade and we looked through that, too.

Three types of rocks: igneous, sedimentary, and metamorphic.

Characteristics of minerals: they are natural, they have a crystalline structure, and they are solid.

Characteristics of rocks: composed of more than one mineral.

How rocks are used: to make roads, in building materials, in our make-up, to make dishes, chalk, etc.”

“We put together a poster board and then shared it with my husband and son.

Since we can’t go to any museums right now (pandemic), we looked my daughter’s collection. We discussed the different rocks and minerals and their characteristics.

We also did an experiment that we found in one of their books. We put a piece of what we thought was Calcite with a bit of egg shell and vinegar into a cup. After 15 minutes, we found that the egg was bubbly, which means we were right in thinking the rock was Calcite!”
