Cover Story: In Praise of SMALL SPACES - Feb/Mar2016

Hello my name is Melissa and I used to be a condo snob. Admittedly, I judged condos unfairly. So how is it then that I came to live…quite comfortably…in one? I used to picture condo-living as a suffocating experience; trapped with no fresh air and certainly no room to live the kind of life I do.

Grow Your Own - Feb/Mar2016

Seed racks in the stores are filled with a great selection this time of year. Make your selection while the choice of seeds is at its best. I suggest sowing pansies, impatiens, geraniums and petunias right now. Starting seeds indoors is fun and a great way to engage kids in gardening at any age.
