Established plants, particularly perennials and shrubs, shade out the soil beneath them. In a mature garden, this can completely negate the need to weed after about mid-June. What gardener wouldn’t want…

Dear Charter,

Oh, Charter (my Internet, TV, phone company)  how I loathe thee…..but must admit at least one small concession.   I have, until about an hour ago, been without Internet, phone and TV for over 24 hours.  Initially, I had withdrawals, but then, in the same amount of time that I would normally have spent prepping a…

And the 3rd Winner is….

Did you read all the comments for the Shed Chic Contest?  In trying to figure out the 3rd (my choice) winner of  the book I weighed all your great responses.

I’m having a ‘Holy Crap’ moment!

It’s happened a few times in my life.  I remember them all.
