    This year, it seems like spring really snuck up on us, and I couldn’t believe I was mowing my lawn in March.
    It occasionally seems like I put more work into just mowing my yard than enjoying it. However, mowing and maintaining a lawn takes practice, patience and time.

  • Reduce your salt intake by growing herbs

    Herbs are also some of the easiest things to grow.
    The simplest way to start an herb garden is to buy plants and transfer them to a window box.
