  • Explanation of the Homemaker emblem

    Curry Homemakers
    This emblem is composed of four concentric circles which typify the home, the state, the nation and the organization.
    The hearth fire in the center symbolizes the home and expresses the spirit of the finer attributes of the home, such as fellowship, hospitality, comfort, peace and protection.
    The oak leaf symbolizes the strength of the home; the lamp of knowledge, the wisdom with which a home and family must be created; the wheat productivity and richness of family and community life.

  • Are your bad gardening habits persisting?

    We all have bad habits.  Some people chew their fingernails; others mow their grass too short in the summer.
    You can guess which one bugs me the most.
    The odd thing about many of the worst bad habits in the garden is that they have become so commonplace.  The worst offenses are repeated everywhere to the extent that gardeners think they are the rule.
    Over-mulching, for example, has been an epidemic problem for many years despite the fact that research spells out trouble for our plants when we bury their roots under a foot of hardwood mulch.

  • Winter interest in fruit and foliage

    I don’t mind a gloomy day here or there, I actually find them somewhat restorative.  Too many in a row, though, can be sort of depressing.  So, when the winter sky moves in I search out the plants in the landscape that have color.
    We all say we want winter interest, but sometimes we forget about it once spring rolls around and we get excited about a new season.  
    Have you selected things that will capture your eye in January?  
    Look out the window and tell yourself what you see and then take some notes.
