I am going to try and post how I am doi ..read more

Hello again everyone: How about a few words on some Gardening Tools? “A few Tools” Let’s talk about a few essential tools that are, IMHO, a ‘Must Have’ from Left to Right. 1.

The “Planting Season” is quickly coming upon us. Starter Plants: Ok, I will tell you right up front you can most likely go to any Nursery, Wally World, Home Depot, Lowe’s or XYZ store and buy probably about any Starter Plants you can imagine. I will also say right up front that doing your own “Starts” is NOT just dropping some seeds in a cup and poof, there they are (well maybe it really is). It will take some work ..read more
