During the first summer in our current home, we invited a realtor friend over for a glass of wine outside, the same friend that had sold us our fixer-upper.

I know why some people resort to using chemicals in their garden. It’s not easy to maintain plant health and keep pests at bay the natural way. But, the rewards […]

Plant Once, Eat for Decades: Planting Asparagus

Plant Once, Eat for Decades: Planting Asparagus

There’s this thing that I want really, really badly: it’s called “passive income.” Basically, it means that after you do a good deal of work to set up your income stream, the money just rolls in forever while you sit near an infinity edge pool in the Maldives and a dude wearing a loincloth feeds […]

Garden Planning: Dreaming of Spring

Garden Planning: Dreaming of Spring

As a Pennsylvania gardener, I’m often relieved when winter comes. I can sleep in without worrying about weeding and watering before I get ready for work. I at least have the illusion that there’s very little to do, but actually there’s only a few weeks when that’s true. Gardening is a way to use your […]

A GMO-Free Garden: Is It Possible?

A GMO-Free Garden: Is It Possible?

Years ago, I got into perennial gardening with my tiny backyard. It was fun and rewarding, but after a few seasons under my belt, I started dreaming about bigger things like using my love of gardening to grow food. I started learning to grow my own vegetables when I moved to the suburbs and had […]

Lasagna Gardening: No Sweat!

Lasagna Gardening: No Sweat!

As kind of a dork, I almost never know all the latest things that are “in”, but I usually know which things are “out” – like jeans with tapered legs, banana hair clips, and expansive stretches of perfectly manicured lawn. In the world of sustainable living, lawns have been on the outs for years because they take a lot of […]
