You say you’re hosting a party for family and friends but hate all the waste you know it will produce? Well worry not, there are easy ways to host a low-waste party.
My family gathers here at the Homestead every year to celebrate something we’ve named ‘RanchFest’. It’s held on the anniversary of the date RancherMan & I purchased our little piece of NE Texas paradise. But in our family we all consider it our own little family reunion.
I’ve found there are a few things to remember that are easy to implement and it makes a HUGE difference in the amount of trash our gathering ends up producing. Maybe you can use some of these tips at your own gathering too.
There are some plants that work perfectly for a lazy gardener. You know the ones – you plant them once and they provide you with food year after year? I’m sharing some of my faves.
Our homestead is located in NE Texas – in planting zone 8. So your lazy-gardener plant list may be slightly different than mine depending upon your typical weather conditions.
But following is a list of things I – for the most part – planted once and then pretty much just forgot about. And some of these things have provided food for us for several years so far, with several more years to go.
Of course we appreciate our moms every day, but on special days we make it all about her! And isn’t it wonderful to give her special attention?
Whether she’s been there since day one
or came into your life sometime After You Were Born,
moms are special!
Is your mom environmentally aware? Does she love being gentle with this gorgeous earth we call home? Well you’re in luck, I’ve assembled a quick list of inexpensive gift ideas to spoil your crunchy, eco-friendly mom this year. Gifts she’ll love – c’mon & see!
