PUT THE POLITICIANS ON THE MINIMUM WAGE AND WATCH HOW FAST THINGS CHANGE
Civilisation has operated in two ways - To make one part of society more affluent and the other more wretched than would have been the lot of either in a natural state
There are Natural Rights and Civil Rights. Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness
Where Our Power to Execute Our Natural Rights is Perfect, Government has No Legitimate Jurisdiction

ARTICLES TO READ

Mums For Fall
Gardeners have been enjoying mums for more than 2,000 years. By A.D. 400, these plants were the craze among Chinese gardeners. Today, most of the best kinds for North American gardens are known simply as garden mums.

 
Forcing Tulips Indoors
For those who can never get enough of tulips or can’t wait until they spring up naturally in the garden, they can be forced indoors.

 
Extending the Gardening Season
Grow some plants, such as cold-tender herbs and dwarf fruit trees, in containers that you can move in- and outdoors as weather permits.

 
Problems with Deer
Knowing more about deer habitat and dining preferences and combining a variety of strategies allows gardeners to customize solutions to deer-damage problems for individual gardens.

 
Gourds, Squashes And Pumpkins: Plant Care and Collection of Varieties
A type of squash, pumpkins, are best known as a Halloween decoration, but many varieties are also excellent substitutes for winter squash in soups and stews.

 
Pansies for Cool Weather Color
In early spring, and again in fall, I pot up bright cheerful pansies and violas in containers of all kinds.

 
Harvesting and Storing Pumpkins and Squash
As the weather begins to cool and the days begin to shorten, we look forward to the colorful harvest of pumpkins and winter squash. These sturdy vegetables are emblematic of autumn, whether for seasonal decorating, grinning Jack-o-lanterns, Thanksgiving pies, or warming stews and casseroles. And with proper harvesting and storage techniques, you can enjoy this vegetable bounty long after cold weather has closed the garden down.
