Editor's column: Michael Jackson calling to me
Do you ever get deja vu when you listen to the radio? It's happened to me a few times over the past several weeks. I've been traveling between appointments and the same song is played at the same time on the radio as it was a few days before. For a few seconds I think I've just dreamt...

Growing Green: Heirlooms for your Cutting Garden
This late spring has really delayed our work on the flower farm. Flats of flowers are stacking up, crying to be planted in a warm, cozy spot, while many seeds have yet to leave their packets. This year we are trying some new/old flowers, (heirlooms) and I am very excited to watch...

Growing Green: Spring Planted Bulbs for Summer Bloom
I can’t imagine a garden without the lovely fragrance of Acidanthera (Peacock Orchid). A type of gladiola, the acidanthera flower is a white bloom with a maroon blotchy center, and like the gladiola, is a summer bulb.

The first day of spring has come and gone. The snow is deep outside my window, but the sun is shining brightly, and the soft drip of melting snow whisper “spring is on the way!” When the frost leaves the ground, the early perennials will begin to grow. Dianthus (Sweet Williams...
