Mother’s Day Reflections: Gardening Like Mom

Mother's Day has always been one of my mom's favorite holidays. For twenty-four hours, my mom does not need to lift a finger unless she feels so inclined. Her garden to-do-list is handed off to my dad, my two sisters, my brother and me. Rain or shine, we set out to work in the yard while she watches (cold beverage in hand) by the pool. This lasts for about all of twenty minutes. She cannot help herself.


Garden Prep: Your March To-Do List

Winter is waning, spring is finally upon us. As the sun shines a little bit longer each day, we gardeners are anxious to get back into our gardens. Before getting started arm yourself with a checklist for each month during spring. In March, begin by getting your gear ready. Take a few minutes to make sure all of your gardening tools are in good condition and ready to use.
