  • A lot of jokes and stories start with, “There are two kinds of people in the world.”  Here is my contribution. There are two kinds of people, those that love to mow the lawn and those that don’t

    I fall in the latter category. I love the fall when the lawn stops growing.  I love it when I can stow the mower and the trimmer for the winter.  On the other hand, I like a well kept lawn, so I get out there every week and get it done.

  • If you think spring is the best time to take soil samples, you might want to rethink that. Fall is actually the optimum time to take soil samples for fertility analyses.

  • While I will admit that half of my vegetable garden looks dreadful, the other half is holding steady because we mulched paths with a heavy layer of wood chips, filled unplanted beds with cover crops and have weeded the rest by hand and hoe.  I started using cover crops about 8 years ago and I am sold on the multi-purpose usefulness.  

  • When I was a kid riding in the car on long trips with my parents, I used to try to read the signs way out in front of us.  I always wanted to read them before my Dad.  I don’t know why really, it was just a thing we did.
