  • When our family travels, Dad drives, Mom rides shotgun, and Chloe and I sit in the backseat playing games, singing songs, and even watching DVDs from time to time. I never know where we are, where we are going, and how long it will take to get there, so “Are we there yet?” is my standard question.

  • When it comes to bulbs, we are not always met with consistent success. Before you blame the chipmunks, the guy who mows the grass or the bulb company for their lack-luster performance, consider some of the other factors that influence how well flowering bulbs flower. 

    Sunlight, crowded bulbs, pre-mature removal of foliage the previous season or a winter rest period that wasn’t cold enough or long enough may play a role in poor performance. 

  • •Mandy Marshall and Carlos Bras of Norfolk, Va. The wedding will be held on Oct. 10, 2009 at Kincaid Lake State Park in Pendleton County by invitation only.

  • Farm vs. specialty fertilizers

    Lawns can be fertilized with specialty turf fertilizers (normally available at local garden centers) or with farm fertilizers. The main advantages to the specialty fertilizers are:

    •Normally good nutrient ratios for turf.

    •Uniformity of particle size.

    •Low burn potential.

    •Calibration and application rate information printed on the bag.

    Most farm fertilizers do not have these advantages, but farm fertilizers are usually three to five time less expensive.
