  • Knowing exactly who God wants me to be

    In my family we have this thing we say about our mom dropping us on our heads as babies.
    Not that she ever did — that I’m aware of — although she has admitted to tossing my oldest brother over her shoulder accidentally a bit too vigorously, catching him by his foot before he could crash to the floor.
    No harm, no foul, as they say.

  • Mow high to maintain lawn health

    Americans have all sorts of reputations, one being our love affair with the perfect lawn. The funny thing about it is that many of our lawn care habits actually create additional problems that need some sort of intervention.  
    It is a vicious lawn care cycle.  
    Fertilize, mow, spray, fertilize, mow, spray … why not just mow high and enjoy the clover?
    No matter how many times agronomists warn us not to fertilize in the spring, products fly off the shelf in April and May.  
    Fall is the time to fertilize, if you must.
