Five Tips for Keeping the Vegetable Garden Thriving
You’ve worked hard to plant the vegetable garden. Keep it going well into the summer—now is the best time to enjoy it!

 

In the Weeds
Your weed may be your neighbor’s idea of a wild flower, but in short, a weed is a plant that is unplanned for the garden, that grows vigorously and can choke other plants.

 

Have Shade? Plant a Garden
Shade gardens are lovely and refreshing. Don't discouraged if you have a lot of shade, as you don’t need bright sun for a pretty garden.

 

Down the Garden Path

A path through your garden or lawn adds appeal and charm to your property. A path does not have to be long, complicated, or expensive — although it might be any of these things.


 

Mighty Mulch
A thick layer of biodegradable mulch improves the garden by holding in moisture and reducing weeds. It also improves the soil and makes the garden more attractive. Every gardener should take mulching seriously.

 

One Potato, Two Potato
Whether it’s for health reasons, cost, or personal fulfillment, increasing numbers of people are drawn to the idea of growing their own vegetables. It’s a great thing to do with the kids, as they are always excited to see the plants magically sprout from the ground.

 

Getting Started on Outdoor Chores
When the first flowers poke their heads resolutely through the muddy soil, it's time to leave winter behind. This means it's time for outdoor maintenance.

 

Essential Garden Tools
Most home gardeners use the same basic tools over and over again; habit is a powerful incentive. On the other hand, beginners don't always know what these are and so waste time and energy using a spade when a cultivator is needed. All gardeners can benefit from a refresher course when it comes to tools.
