Pots and planters are for more than just decoration – container gardening can be a great way to grow vegetables easily and successfully. Container gardening is also a great and educational way to interact with children, after all what child doesn’t like getting their hands dirty and learning at the same time?
February feels like a turning point in the garden. Sure it is still cold outside, but there are signs heralding spring’s imminent arrival all through the garden beds. The garden seems to slowly start coming to life again, after a few months of dormancy. At first glance you sometimes see no change, but upon looking closer, ahh there it is. A tiny stem with an unfolding leaf basking in the late winter's sunlight.
Fall is right around the corner, but backyard entertaining is still in full swing. Whether you’re hosting a mid-morning brunch or an early evening cocktail hour, it’s time to update the outdoor décor to make it festive for the season.
