  • It is a brand new school year. For most of us, a good portion of our lives followed a school calendar. My internal clock still wants to follow this schedule. In June and July, it is a little harder to focus, but when August rolls around, I am ready to conquer a “new year.” I even love a new pair of back to school shoes. I have an affinity to school supplies. I love binders, pens and all that fun stuff. I get excited when I see stores start stocking these items.

  • When Pharisees asked Jesus, “What is the greatest commandment?” Jesus answers, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.” This is the greatest and most important commandment. And the second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as yourself.” Matthew 22:36-39.

  • Although we are still a little over a month from the official start of autumn, now is the time to add some new plantings to extend your fresh produce well into the fall.

    Cooler nights later in the year can increase the sugar content of many crops and thus increase their quality. Cooler nights also slow growth, so crops can take longer to mature than in the summer. Keep this slower pace in mind when checking seeds for days to maturity.
