One of the easiest and most cost effective methods for conserving water and improving water quality is to INSTALL A RAIN BARREL. Rain barrels collect water from rooftops and hold it for later use. The water can then be reused for a variety of watering needs – lawns, gardens or even indoor plants. Collecting roof runoff in rain barrels reduces the amount of water that flows from your property. It’s a great way to conserve water and it’s free water for use in your landscape.

Those unfamiliar with bare root roses can be taken aback when first encountering them. Far from the lush rose bush envisioned, bare root roses arrive looking sort of… dead. Take heart. That clump of sticks with roots attached might seem vulnerable and uninspiring, but it’s actually only dormant, a natural state for roses during the winter months. Planting a rose in this state is one of the best ways to ensure that the bush gets off to a healthy happy start. Once planted, they very quickly become leafy bushes bursting with blooms.
Chef Brian Streeter offers his recipe for Provençal Onion Tart, or Pissaladière. It makes a lovely lunch dish and is very good served with a simple green salad. The pizza-style tart originates from the Nice region of the South of France and is evocative of hot Mediterranean summers.
