By Darcy Larum - Sunday Jun 4, 2017
By Darcy Larum, Landscape Designer Ok, not everyone is a fan but wearing loves in the garden is actually important if you want to avoid pricks from thorns, splinters or nasty blisters. What’s every bit as important, though, is the type of gardening glove you choose. Wearing Gloves in the Garden While training a new guy at a garden center/landscape company where I worked, I suggested that he get a pair of good quality gloves for the work we do. This man’s silly reply was, “Gloves are for girls, my hands are tough.” I could not actually force him to wear gloves if he didn’t want to, but I wondered to myself, how “tough” he would feel if his hands were full of rose or barberry thorns, or covered in oozing lesions from fungal skin infections picked up from certain plants or gardening materials.

- Five Ways to Get the Most Bang for Your Buck from a Small Garden
By Drew Housman - Sunday Jun 18, 2017
Living in New York City, I’m often disappointed in the quality of produce offered at the supermarkets. It’s not uncommon for carrots to wilt within a day, or for spinach to quickly turn into green mush even when it’s kept in the refrigerator’s “crisper” drawer. (Is anyone else certain that this has literally no effect on any produce put into it?) For the prices we pay, it’s a pretty demoralizing vegetable situation. That being the case, I often dream of ...
