  • Tips on gardening, weed control

    Home gardeners look forward to that first ripe tomato or ear of corn they pick from their carefully tended gardens, but after some vigorous gardening on a hot, humid day, you may wonder if it is all worth it.  Of course it is!

    Weeds compete with crops for water, nutrients and sunlight.  Some weeds, like quackgrass, can chemically inhibit vegetable plant growth. Others host insect pests and disease pathogens.  All of these result in fewer fresh vegetables for your table.  Let us consider some approaches to tackling weeds in our gardens.

  • Something for the summer bucket list

    At the beginning of the summer, my wife and kids came up with a “Summer Bucket List.” It is a list of things that they would like to do before school starts back up in August. They have big plans that include a lot of swimming and time with friends and family.

    I am very glad that they did this, because my experience with summer is that it flies by quickly. Everyone is excited when school lets out, then before you know it, it is the fourth of July. Throw in a family trip and couple of cook outs and, all of a sudden, August has arrived and the break is over.
