How can I keep squirrels off my tomatoes? A very simple old-fashioned way to discourage animals, including deer, from taking a bite out of your tomatoes is to sprinkle a little lime on the fruits. Use powdered agricultural lime. It washes off easily when you harvest. You'll have to reapply after rains, so don't overdo the lime because you don't want to raise your soil pH too high. This method also can be useful on a short term basis to keep deer from eating foliage. My hedge has gotten completely bare at the bottom over the years.

Where exactly is the "south side" of the classic Southside cocktail? Bartenders themselves have troubling pinning down its origins. According to beverage lore, the drink could be named after the South Side of Chicago or the Southside Sportsmen's Club on Long Island, N.Y. - no one seems to be sure. Speculation only increases with its ingredients, since it can be made to order with vodka, gin or rum. But Ted Bauer, owner of the Valley Inn in Brooklandville, just north of the Beltway, confidently noted that Baltimore was an early adopter of the recipe, a summer favorite on the country club circuit.

Is there a vegetable subtler than the cucumber? Well, maybe cauliflower, but when used in a way that maximizes its grassy flavor, the cucumber can prove to be a great buy at your local farmers' market. From May until November, the cuke is used mainly as a topper on salads and as a member of the always bland crudites platter. It dreams of one day becoming a fancy sandwich served with tea. What it might never have imagined is becoming a bright and thirst-quenching drink for hot summer days.

I believe it was Edgar Allan Poe who once mused, "The happiest day -- the happiest hour/ My sear'd and blighted heart hath known … is sipping liquor from a copper mug. " All right, maybe I'm winging it there just a little, but that line is the inspiration behind a quiet little bar that opened up inside the Baltimore Marriott Waterfront a few months ago: Apropoe's. Could there be a more aptly named tribute to our adopted son than that? Witty, they certainly are. But what really sets this hotel bar apart is the quality of ingredients and the nice selection of craft cocktails on menu.

The food industry's flavor wizards are working to anticipate the next big taste trend. The next big trend, however, might be a very common flavor -- something sitting in your fruit bowl right now. Like lime. If you haven't noticed, lime-flavored products are on the rise. A hint of lime is adding a welcome kick to some of our favorite food products, with more on the way. Lime-flavored chips, hot sauces, beers and spirits, and even the new Diet Coke With Lime, are examples of our new citrus fixation.

I just got my soil test results back from the University of Maryland, and it seems I need to apply lime to my lawn. Should I wait until spring?Fall is the season for lime applications, so time is running out. An application now gives the lime time before the growing season to be carried by rainfall and gravity down to the root zone of your turf grass. It usually takes several months for the lime to raise the soil pH, so the sooner you get it down the better.I have a number of rose bushes that I never touch.

From the patrons to the paint job, Lime is one of the city's most colorful corner bars. Fort Avenue's funky new tequila joint combines South Baltimore natives, yuppies and devilish Mexican drinks in an atmosphere all its own. It's a narrow, quirky neighborhood bar worth driving to - especially for tomorrow's free outdoor Cinco de Mayo extravaganza. But, as with most tequila bars, an average evening at Lime can get pretty pricey, which is the main reason why I don't drink there more often.

If you stand in Benjamin Marks' living room, you can hear the high-pitched hum. It's distant but not too far off, as though a next-door neighbor were running a vacuum cleaner or a blender.Actually, the sound comes from a much larger appliance -- the new outdoor incinerator of Baltimore County General Hospital.The $750,000 unit, which began operation in January, stands a few hundred yards from Mr. Marks' home in the west county community of Stevenswood.Even when his doors and windows are closed, the noise is audible in the house from morning to night, said Mr. Marks, 24, a salesman for a local printing firm.

If asked to choose my favorite shellfish, without hesitation I'd pick scallops. These sweet, succulent morsels were a discovery I made as a young adult. My family indulged in shrimp and crab dishes and, for occasions, we ordered lobsters, but scallops never graced our table.I was in my 20s on a visit to France when I tasted these sublime mollusks for the first time. I've been a fan ever since.Today, when entertaining, I love to include scallops in my menus. I offer as appetizers skewered scallops wrapped in prosciutto with seasonings of lemon and rosemary.

From the depths of downtown, mere feet from the Hippodrome Theater , Alewife has been delivering dozens of beers on tap and a dimly lit aesthetic that has stood the test of time. It's primarily identified as a beer bar, but Alewife does indeed have a craft cocktail list put together in part by bartender Kelsea Zeglin with a bevy of house-made ingredients. One of the more unusual cocktails on the list is the Spicy Suze, a libation that defies convention. It's roots are in the margarita, but it branches out in a few twists that make it worth a slurp.

The sign says "Big Ass Margaritas" … sold or shall I continue? Work up a thirst while I give you the drink details on the newly opened Papi's Taco Joint in Fells Point. Clearly, they already know their audience well - especially on Fridays (and only on Fridays), when you can order 11 delicious varieties of the 20-ounce Dos Manos Margarita all day - and all night - for a superb price. As the name implies en Espanol, you're going to need two hands to guzzle one of these puppies.

It's not quite warm outside but with the return of spring and summer offerings to our favorite local bar menus, you can certainly try to will (or numb) your body into feeling like it is. So it snowed last week? Inside, I was sipping on a daiquiri, visions of palm trees dancing in the wind, crystal blue waters kissing my feet and … wait, yep, I said a daiquiri. A REAL Daiquiri, in fact (that's the official name for the cocktail, anyway). And it's makers over at Clementine want you to know that it's the right way to drink a daiquiri.

Well folks, spring is officially upon us and it's time to start wetting our whistles with some light, fun, refreshing drinks that are more conducive to outdoor frolicking than hermiting next to an open hearth or space heater. And what better liquor to inspire such a creation than sweet, beloved rum, everybody's favorite molasses-based distilled booze, which Station North's (and Power Plant Live's) Joe Squared happens to have an enormous selection of. Joe Squared has a number of classic rum cocktails on its list, a few innovations to boot, and one particular take on Brazil's national cocktail - the Caipriña (or Caipirinha, if you prefer)

They use words most likely to be heard at a Scripps National Spelling Bee: chryseobacterium, aquaticum or trypticase. They envision careers in medicine, they enjoy math and science, and - between juggling schedules that include school, music and sports - they recently collaborated on a project that's headed for the International Space Station. One can only imagine what accomplishments are in store for Greg Nelson, Josh Choi, Sophia Novacic and Ryan Olsen when they reach high school.

Every summer, I am reminded of the gigantic crush I have on the Crush. You know, the fruit-juice-and-vodka-cocktail that's known as a Baltimore specialty. You can find them all over city, usually in the Orange Crush variety. But Orange can be a little, well, boring. And so, like a lusty teenage girl might, I drop it quickly when a new, more interesting flavor comes along. This year, my fling is with the Blueberry Acai Mojito Crush at Ryleigh's Oyster in Federal Hill. Ryleigh's has become the gold standard of Crushes, though several city spots claim theirs to be its birthplace.
