It is human nature – some people are just inherently afraid of commitment. Buying a plant and putting it in a FLOWER BED in front of the house for all to see is a public commitment. YIKES!! What if it dies? Everyone will know it was me. For shame! Or worse, what if it is […]
With Halloween a few weeks away, I thought it would be a fitting topic! This little gem is called “Devil’s Backbone,” at least that is its nickname…it is a type of Kalanchoe (yes, I had to google how to spell that!). This little fella has been living on my porch for well over a year […]
I have an adorable pig pot….an adorable pig pot that murders everything I put into it. Yes…it is probably user error, but I do partially blame the pot for lacking a drain hole. Inevitably I drown everything I have plant in my adorable death trap. It is really surprising to me how far a little […]

Third time is a charm! Or is it three strikes I am out? I guess that remains to be seen! Well, I finally bit the bullet and started my annual herb and vegetable garden. I MAY have let them sit in a box on the front porch for about three weeks before actually planting them….but […]
Do you know how hard it is to marry into the Nelson family? Plants are in the genes….Peter was BORN to be in this field. Both Rolf and Anita have Horticulture degrees and Peter, a Landscape Architecture degree. No pressure.
