  • There are some plants that demand good drainage:  taxus, coreopsis, gaillardia and penstemon, to name a few.  I have lost them all because they were poorly sited in the garden but now that I know where water is slow to drain I know where to plant those trees, shrubs and perennials that like wet environments.  There is an upside to poor drainage for some plants, just be sure that water is available when Mother Nature doesn’t deliver.

  • (StatePoint) The work week can be busy and stressful, from shuttling the family around to packing everyone’s lunch.
    If you’re constantly taking care of others, ask yourself, are you taking sufficient care of yourself? At mealtime, it’s important to take a minute to re-energize, particularly during a long work day.
    Rather than ordering heavy meals or packing the same old thing day in and day out, find yourself other quick and tasty lunch ideas that are satisfying and have nutritional value.
    Here are some things to keep in mind.

  • We are still eating from a fantastic harvest of sweet potatoes last fall.  
    I planted out about 25 organic slips purchased from Country Corner Greenhouse in Shepherdsville in late May and by early November we had four nursery crates full of one of nature’s perfect foods.
    Seven months and counting in storage with no spoilage is impressive.  
    We are down to about six sweet potatoes; just in time for a transition to other summer vegetables.
