  • The arrival of summer brings me back to life. The air is humid, the sun is shining, the plants are growing, and I don my preferred “couture” of a tee shirt, shorts and flip flops. These are not just any flip flops but are of the 98 cents variety. In addition to being amazingly inexpensive they come in a rainbow of colors. I love my cheap flip flops!

  • As many of you know, fall is one of my favorite seasons of the year, but it can also be a messy time. Tree leaves turn from green to vibrant fall colors and then drop, creating big piles. Then there are the leaf and spent shoots from our flower beds.
    The way we address our yard waste can have a significant impact on our gardens and on the environment, according to Richard Durham, University of Kentucky Extension Horticulture Specialist. Gardeners commonly rake up and bag leaves to haul away to yard waste dumps or roadside pick-up.

  • Potatoes have been a staple in the diet of Americans for over 300 years, but they have been sustaining populations worldwide much longer.  Potatoes were introduced to North America in the 18th century by Irish immigrants, however their native home is South America.  Potatoes were firs cultivated in the Andes Mountains over 7,000 years ago.
