In the Garden: Don’t be stingy with mulch, but use it wisely

Mulching is a year-round project. Traditionally, we apply mulch in the fall to protect roots from frost heaving. Now, it is done to protect plants from drying out. Our weather has changed in the last 25 years; we receive less precipitation in the winter.

In the Garden: The right steps for reblooming orchids

My first memories of orchids are the corsages my father bought my mother each year for Mother’s Day. She would keep them in the fridge and be able to wear them to church for a few weeks. I remember being fascinated by the strange shape and brilliant colors of the flowers.

Fall is a good time to control weeds

In the Garden: This family grows gardeners

Eating fresh vegetables is no problem for 5-year-old Rhys Nelson of East Wenatchee. He rates kale his top favorite, followed by broccoli — not usual fare for a kindergartner. Next are carrots and strawberries, more likely picks of most youngsters.

In the Garden: Creating spring’s swath of color begins in fall

Is there anything more beautiful than a field of spring flowers? Probably not, but most of us do not have the space to create such a vista. We can, however, naturalize small bulbs in our lawn and dormant flowerbeds to create a miniaturized vision of a meadow.

Modern quilters are putting a fresh spin on an old tradition

LOS ANGELES — When Alissa Haight Carlton and Latifah Saafir organized the first Modern Quilt Guild meeting in Los Angeles in October 2009, they hoped they would find a few other like-minded quilters who wanted to get together. They weren’t alone: The modern-quilting group today has more than 100 chapters and 5,000-plus members nationwide.

In the Garden: Fall lawn care will pay off next spring

I wrote this spring about lawns and their care and mentioned that I love lawns, green lawns — make that a beautiful expanse of a uniform emerald carpet. Hopefully, something I wrote found application in your lawn practices this summer.
