New Years Day Thursday, Jan. 1 From Deanna's Desk By Deanna Sweat, Extension Agent With gifts of food, consider skip- ping fancy wraps and opting for a reus- able food storage container or tin, said .Karen Blakeslee, Kansas State Uni- versity Research and Extension rapid response coordinator. Food storage containers are de- signed to keep food fresh. Reusable containers are relatively inexpensive and can be reused after the gift has been enjoyed. Blakeslee recommends separating layers of cookies with food wrap or waxed paper. Wrapping larger or decorated cookies individually in food wrap and adding aribbon or sticker simulates commercially-available gourmet cookie assortments. It also protects the cookies. Poinsettias are not poisonous Poinsettias, without a doubt, say Christmas. Not only do they come in traditional red, but beautiful plants are also available in white, pink and speck- led or streaked combinations of these colors. What we think of as petals are actually colored leaves or bracts. The "flowering" portions are the round, yellow buttons in the center of the bracts. Joel Roberts Poinsett (1779- 1851), the first American ambassador to Mexico, was intrigued with the plants. He had plants sent to his South Carolina greenhouse, where they were propagated and sent to friends and bo- tanical gardens. Poinsettias are a "short day" plant, which means they respond to long pe- riods of darkness. At least 14 hours of uninterrupted darkness for at least 40 days are required to "force" poinset- tias to develop their colorful flowers. Poinsettias are Euphorbias. When bruised or cut they will "bleed" a white latex type sap. Some people will have a skin reac- tion to this sap. Place poinsettias in an area where they will receive some sun- light, but are out of drafts from doors. windows or heating vents. Each year the rumors circulate that poinsettiasare poisonous. Poinsettias are not poisonous. According to re- search from Ohio State University, a 50 pound child would have to eat 500- 600 poinsettia leaves to reach a dan- gerous level.
