SUMMARY: Plants can be dioecious, meaning they have separate male and female individuals, like Persimmons and Red Mulberries. Male plants produce pollen but no fruit. Many common plants, Yaupon Holly and Wax Myrtle, are dioecious, which can be confusing for those expecting fruit. Other plants, like corn, are monoecious with both male and female flowers on one plant. For landscaping with fruiting plants, nurseries often grow from cuttings to ensure the desired sex since seed-grown plants won't show their sex until maturity. Male plants, despite bearing no fruit, are still vital for pollination and can have attractive foliage.

SUMMARY: I love making red sauce with a few favorite recipes. I typically pair it with bucatini pasta but also enjoy it with molded grits or fried boneless pork chops. My go-to sauces include a robust marinara, cooked with onions, bell peppers, garlic, and red wine, and Marcella Hazan's simple yet delicious recipe of tomatoes, butter, and onion. For marinara, sauté veggies, add wine, imported tomatoes, and simmer. Marcella's sauce is even simpler: simmer tomatoes, butter, and onion for 45 minutes. Key tips: use high-quality ingredients and don't cook with undrinkable wine.

SUMMARY: Fiddler crabs, notable for the males' comical oversized claws, populate tidal marshes globally and are integral to estuarine food chains. Males wave their claws to attract mates and excavate burrows in marsh muds and sands, which serve as protection and mating sites. These crabs feed on algae and bacteria by sifting sediment with spoon-shaped mouth bristles, creating trails of processed sediment balls. They play a crucial ecological role by transferring nutrients up the food chain and are prey for birds, fish, and mammals. In Mississippi, Marsh Fiddler and Red-Jointed Fiddler crabs are particularly common and visually distinctive.
