  • Anna Lee Stokley made the switch from traditional gardening to raised beds three years ago – and so far, this year has produced a bumper crop.

  • If someone asked me what my favorite perennial was, I could only say that it changes with each passing year. This year the answer is the Hardy Geranium, known around these parts as the Cranesbill. My fascination with Hardy geraniums has grown steadily as I have discovered the countless varieties that exist. In European gardens they are as commonplace as phlox is in American perennial gardens.
    Most of us think of geraniums as an annual that we plant in our yards or in pots to add color to our patios during the summer months. Well, this plant is actually a Pelargonium.

  • Heavy rains in April and May delayed the home gardening season this year, forcing many gardeners to wait later than usual to plant or transplant seedlings into the garden. And June’s moderate temperatures have continued the early trend of slow growth. But as more sun hits garden plants and accelerates growth, vegetables should begin to flower, develop fruit and, eventually, ripen.
