Today's Features

  • It’s hard to believe that as I’m typing this the weather is calling for frost the next few nights. Maybe I’m getting old, but it sure seems like time flies anymore. I can distinctly remember rolling my eyes as a child when older people would talk about time and how it seemed to fly by. Now, I’m one of those people. I guess life is funny like that. If I start reminiscing about walking to school with no shoes in three feet of snow I’ll know I’ve truly graduated. So, on to this month’s topic.

  • Everyone has dreamed of something they wanted to achieve in life when they were younger. However, as we grow older, these ambitions start making us desperate because we haven’t completed them.

  • As the fall season progresses, leaves and other yard waste can pile up.  Composting is a practice that is beneficial to the environment and allows property owners to get rid of yard wastes in an effective manner.

    Fin-ished compost can be used for a variety of tasks:  improve soil structure in gardens and landscape beds, help soil hold nutrients, reduce erosion and water runoff, reduce weed problems as mulch, moderate soil temperatures, and conserve soil moisture.
