  • Today is National Healthcare Decisions Day. It’s an observance that reminds us to make our end-of-life wishes known while we’re still of sound mind. It’s a day that brings to mind situations such as that of Nancy Cruzan, a young woman injured in a car wreck who lingered in a persistent unconscious state on life support for seven years.

  • Last week, I discussed getting the land ready for your first (or improved) vegetable plot for 2008 and the very first crop to plant is the potato. I was just commenting to my husband (as I prepared the last of our Russian banana fingerlings for dinner) that our potatoes lasted March to March. I have my seed potatoes ready now; I just need to wait until the soil dries out.

  • Managing weeds throughout the growing season doesn’t have to be a losing battle if you start early and follow a few simple rules. For now the weed problem consists primarily of a handful of cool season weeds including cress, chickweed, henbit and wild onion. Soon wild violets, ground ivy, dandelions and clover will become more noticeable before our warm season weeds begin to emerge or germinate.
