Primary Earth-friendly Gardening Tenents:

*Tolerate minimal damage to plants and lawn from pests. *Build and maintain healthy soil by using compost and natural soil amendments. *Use chemicals as a last resort. *Use native plants when possible. They are adapted to the climate, soil and area pests. *Attract Beneficial Insects to increase pollination and decrease harmful pests. *Conserve water by using responsible watering methods.

time-release rain :0

I have been itching to garden all week and apparently global warming is having an effect on us all, we have had hail several times this week and snow today. I joked that it was just "time released" rain when the first hails hit, but I am nervous about establishing new plants and starting seeds. We should be well past the last frost by now so this is quite troubling!
