  • For some gardeners the tactile experience of maintaining the garden is not really what they’re after.  I love the whole process but I realize that most people just want things to look good without too much fuss.   
    As our farm grows on the 4-legged and 2-legged side of things I am noticing some perennial plant neglect.
    So, I do need to do some rearranging so that the mixed borders get easier to care for not more difficult. Therein lays the mission of the Perennial Plant Association’s “Plant of the Year” program.

  • A few weeks ago, a 4.1 earthquake hit Yorba Linda, Calif., the town where I spent my teen years growing up and near where some of my family still lives.
    My niece, Jennifer, was in the shower when the quake hit and things started shaking.
    In all the years I lived in California that was among my top 10 greatest fears — to be in the shower and have an earthquake hit and be buried in a pile of debris while naked or in some stage of undress.
    I even named my fear“They’llFindMeNakedaphobia.”
