Attracting Hummingbird Moths To Your Garden

From containers to window boxes, the smallest of growing spaces can offer valuable habitat for local wildlife, as well as pollinating insects. While most people are familiar with the various types of butterflies which flutter by on occasion, hummingbird moth visitors are truly an unusual delight. What is a Hummingbird...

Enjoying Wonderful Wildflowers In My Garden

Growing up in central Alaska, summer was short and precious. The long, 8-month night of winter yielded almost unwillingly to a muddy spring, then suddenly summer made its appearance and life seemed to start again. Even Mother Nature seemed thrilled when the days grew longer and wildflowers crowded in to...

Plant Pollination – Encouraging Other Pollinators In The Garden

Honeybee Colony Collapse Disorder (CCD) is a hot topic, along with all the other factors contributing to our decline of bee population, so serious focus on pollinators and their health has to be in the conversation. While I love bees (just not the mean ones like yellow jackets), there are...

Growing Herbs In Containers – Storing Harvested Herbs From The Garden

I have tried over the years to grow vegetables, with some success and a lot of failures. What I love growing the most, however, is herbs. They’re easier to grow, require less maintenance, have fewer pests, and allow for an ongoing harvest. Here’s how I grow, harvest and store all...

Home Improvement Ideas Kitchens have conventionally been used to organize family meals, store food and organise utensils and crockery. In Rosa’s Backyard , the recent iOS and Android sport by Charlotte Madelon, gentle shades of pink, pink, and yellow fill the screen as roses emerge gracefully from the sport’s digital earth. Delicate field recordings chime in the background — the rustle of wind and the chirruping of birds — while plink-plonk sound results skitter as rose varieties are combined. As soon as two roses have been matched, the player faucets on them and the display screen erupts right into a shower of pastel-coloured petals. Planted into the ground, these seeds sprout more beautiful flowers, the cycle thus continued. You’re entitled to obtain a duplicate of the non-public data we are processing about you.

From containers to window boxes, the smallest of growing spaces can offer valuable habitat for local wildlife, as well as pollinating insects. While most people are familiar with the various types of butterflies which flutter by on occasion, hummingbird moth visitors are truly an unusual delight. What is a Hummingbird Moth? ‘Hummingbird moth’ is the common name frequently used to describe many members of the Hemarus genus. As would be implied, hummingbird moths are unique in their ability to hover near flowers as they drink nectar with a long proboscis. Various types of clearwing hummingbird moth insects, found among flower gardens, are no exception to this unique characteristic. Much like actual hummingbirds, these insects emit an audible buzzing as their wings rapidly vibrate and help them to move about the garden. For this reason, many are often mistaken for bumble bees or carpenter bees. While hummingbird moths are not … Read More

Enjoying Wonderful Wildflowers In My Garden

Growing up in central Alaska, summer was short and precious. The long, 8-month night of winter yielded almost unwillingly to a muddy spring, then suddenly summer made its appearance and life seemed to start again. Even Mother Nature seemed thrilled when the days grew longer and wildflowers crowded in to amaze us all, lupine and bluebells, pale wild roses and Queen Anne’s lace. While I don’t plant those flowers in my current California garden, I am still wild about wildflowers. California’s Wonderful Wildflowers I grew up with a deep respect for the wildflowers of central Alaska. We didn’t plant, water, or tend them. They miraculously reappeared year after year despite the permafrost and the winter temperatures that regularly dipped below negative 60 degrees F. (16 C.). So, it’s hardly a wonder that my go-to summertime flowers are always wildflowers. Compared to anywhere, California is rich in fauna, but … Read More

Plant Pollination – Encouraging Other Pollinators In The Garden

Honeybee Colony Collapse Disorder (CCD) is a hot topic, along with all the other factors contributing to our decline of bee population, so serious focus on pollinators and their health has to be in the conversation. While I love bees (just not the mean ones like yellow jackets), there are other pollinators upon which we can focus. Creating habitat and food for these good guys will help sustain our crops and plants to ensure the future of our food supply. Encouraging “Other” Pollinators in the Garden I am mildly allergic to bee stings. Plus, I am like a four-year-old and terrified of being stung. This doesn’t prevent me from appreciating bees and all the work they do, but it does remind me that they aren’t the only pollinators in the garden. There are daytime and nighttime pollinating insects, most of which don’t bother a fly. They just move around … Read More

Furnishing Kitchens have conventionally been used to arrange household meals, store meals and organise utensils and crockery. Simply understood representations of the Moor” had been imprecise, different, inconsistent, and contradictory. The time period ‘Moor’ referred to darkish-skinned folks usually, used interchangeably with phrases similar to ‘African’, ‘Somali’, ‘Ethiopian’, ‘Negro’, ‘Arab’, ‘Berber’, and even ‘Indian’ to designate a figure from Africa (or past).” Varied uses of the phrase Black (for example, Haply for I’m Black”) are insufficient proof for any accurate racial classification, students argue, (an attempt at Whitewashing” Blackness?) since Black might simply imply swarthy to Elizabethans.

I have tried over the years to grow vegetables, with some success and a lot of failures. What I love growing the most, however, is herbs. They’re easier to grow, require less maintenance, have fewer pests, and allow for an ongoing harvest. Here’s how I grow, harvest and store all my favorite herbs. Growing Herbs in Containers My herb garden is potted. For some herbs, like mint, this prevents them from growing out of control and taking over beds. For others, like lavender and rosemary, it allows me to move them into the sun as needed, a commodity limited in my yard. Aside from those Mediterranean herbs, many types will tolerate some shade, which makes growing them a little easier. I simply start with a good, rich potting soil and transplant small herb plants I get from the local nursery. Watering regularly is particularly important with … Read More

Zucchini Recipes – Amazing Dishes From Your Zucchini Harvest

Whether it’s the distinctive flavor of homegrown tomatoes or I’m coping with a bumper crop of zucchini, making recipes from garden vegetables always taste better than store-bought produce.

Harvesting Bell Peppers – Things To Do With That Bell Pepper Harvest

Harvesting Bell Peppers – Things To Do With That Bell Pepper Harvest

Picking sweet peppers from the garden is one of my favorite tasks. I always plant several varieties which produce an array of vibrantly colored bell peppers. Not only does my bell pepper harvest look stunning in a bowl on my kitchen counter, the various colors of mature peppers add eye appeal to my meals. Unfortunately, harvesting sweet peppers in a multitude of bright colors creates a huge problem for me. I always choose my favorite varieties like Big Bertha, Red Knight, Golden Summer and Orange Sun. Then I add a few packs of hybrid mix peppers to get those desirable purple and chocolate-brown colors. I want my bell pepper harvest to include every color available, so I keep buying those teeny-tiny seed packets. They take up so little room in my seed box. And peppers are the first veggie plants I start, so I hardly notice as the space … Read More
