Snoop Dogg Snoop Lion

Snoop Lion has been known to rap and sing about, ahem, “plants,” so it’s no surprised he made a special visit to a British man who has broke his own Guinness World Record for growing the largest swede.

Seventy-year old Ian Neale grew a 95.96 pound swede, one that is 10.4 pounds heavier than his previous record.

Snoop Lion, formerly known as Snoop Dogg, had corresponded with the gardener earlier, offering some tips of his own.

5 Ways To Throw An Awesome Garden Party

Written by Vegetarian Star on Monday, September 30th, 2013 in Food & Drink, Gardening.

Having a party at any time of year can be a lot of fun, but during the summer, it is possible to extend that party out into the garden. In the hot sun, plenty of cool drinks and nibbles can be the perfect way to have a good time, and by inviting friends and relatives it is possible to extend those good times and turn them into a proper celebration. Whether you want to have a few friends over for drinks because the weather is warm and your garden looks great, or if you have a particular reason to throw a party, a garden-themed party can be the ideal setting. There are several ways in which you can throw your party.

1) A barbecue

This is the ultimate type of garden party, and one that everyone is familiar with. The secret here is not to allow the party to go on for too long before food is served; it is also a good idea to make sure that the food is well cooked. Keep your guests cool by holding the party under outdoor patio umbrellas, so they can choose whether to stand out in the sun, or sit in the shade. These types of garden party are always popular, and they can be a simple but effective way of making sure that everyone has a great time.

2) Night Party

The hot summer days mean that the light lasts longer, and it is always possible to use low-level lighting so that guests can find their way up and down the garden. These parties are great, because they allow you to hold a party without the risks of heatstroke or burning which might occur during the day. Make sure to have a fire pit or other device to ensure that guests don’t get cold.

Daniel Bryan On Gardening And Asparagus (The Dog)

Daniel Bryan

Daniel Bryan gave an interview to CT.com on his birthday earlier this week. He had a hotel room full of vegan cupcakes but those aren’t the only treats he likes to consume. Bryan has a green thumb and a garden at the home he owns in Washigton state. If only he could live there sometime and actually get to plant what he eats.

Fruits, vegetables, stuff like that,” Bryan said. “I like growing stuff I can eat. To me, that’s a big thing. I own a house in Washington state and I have raspberries, I have a big apple tree, I have strawberries. I don’t get to plant stuff there because I’m never there. I really enjoy that sort of thing.”

For example, did you know that, according to #9 on Letterman’s list, when you plant avocados, tomatoes, onions and cilantro together, you grow a guacamole tree?
