Raised bed gardening has been popular for years. But these days it seems all the rage! The benefits of raised beds are many. The increased height makes it easier to maintain and harvest from your garden. And it’s easier to keep that soil uncompacted & well balanced. Better soils make for a better harvest!
How safe is your drinking water? We found an easy test that helps offer peace of mind that our drinking water is safe. It would be a great comfort when travelling abroad too! Come see our water-testing experience.
How would you love to never have to refill that little soap dispenser pump attached to the edge of your sink? I found a soap dispenser with an extension tube that draws directly from the large bottle of liquid soap beneath your sink. That makes having soap at your fingertips so much more convenient!
As anyone who’s battled (and LOST) the war with Bermuda grass in their flower beds knows, it’s almost impossible to eliminate. The underground rhizomes break easily, leaving the next generation of Bermuda-grass-misery ready to thwart your best efforts again and again. But I’ve found a solution!
I need a surefire way to eliminate mosquitoes. You really do have to be careful and protect yourselves against their nasty bites. I’ve tried all the sure-fire remedies but none worked. But I did find one thing that worked beautifully. Come see.
RancherMan & I work our homestead every day, so much of our daily activity involves being outside. Sun protection is important but we both hate the feel of sunblock. Plus I don’t like the thought of slathering chemicals on my skin every day anyway.
So we’re careful to protect our skin by covering it instead – wide-brim hats (helllooooo cowboy!)and long-sleeved lightweight shirts are often worn while mowing the yard or doing hours of tractor work.
But c’mon – although it helps, that’s not much actual sun protection. I need to find clothing that protects us while keeping us comfortable.
