    Would you think that it’s a good deal if a simple project could beautify an area and increase property values? How about improving air quality and stormwater runoff? If it also cooled the neighborhood on hot days and made people happy, would you be interested?

  • Winter can be a drab, blah time in the garden but it certainly doesn’t have to be. In spring and summer, it is easy to find color for any spot in your landscape. There aren’t many plants that bloom this time of year. To add interest during the off-season, focus on interesting textures, colors and shapes.

  • For many families, serving prime rib for Christmas or New Year’s has become a tradition, but what if you want a discreet little prime rib dinner for two? The simple answer might be, “head for a local steak house.”
    But if you have an overwhelming desire for that warm, succulent, rare prime rib at home, you’ll need a small piece of meat. Preparing a small roast with that desired salty, crusty, flavorful outside and beautifully rare inside is almost impossible if you use the conventional oven method.

  • I remember the race to the tree on Christmas morning. It was exciting but sometimes disappointing.

  • Auditions set for ‘Nunsense’

  • It has finally started to cool down and look and feel more like winter. It is not quite time to throw in the towel though, if you enjoy gardening. Winter containers can be a great challenge, but a rewarding one. Containers can provide year-round interest, depending on the plants you choose.
