In the Garden | Gardening in 2015

I have to admit, 2015 was a different animal to tame in my garden. Whether it was the weak snowfall in the winter to the extreme heat and drought in the summer, I can say my garden had to adapt.

In the Garden | Gardening lessons learned the hard way

Too bad foresight isn’t as smart as hindsight. It’s easy looking back and seeing how gardening SHOULD have been done. Knowledge is an important ingredient and worth the homework needed before starting on a project.

In the Garden | OMG! I can’t believe I planted that!

My Master Gardener friends gloat with garden successes and chortle with failures. This month, the four Master Gardener columnists are going to share “We will never do this again” garden events.

In the Garden | Practice good habits in the garden

The New Year is a time of reflection, for the good and the bad. I was recently asked what some of my regrets or mistakes have been in regard to gardening. I don’t know that my experiences are really all that different from other people, but I am happy to share some of my mishaps. Maybe you can identify with what I am about to describe.

With the New Year right around the corner, it’s hard not to think about your garden.

If your wallet is feeling a little light from holiday spending, yet you still need to find a few bottles of wine for parties or a midweek meal, then there still are plenty of red wines to be found in the magical $15-and-under category.

These gifts will make gardening safer in the new year

I crowdsourced my fellow Chelan-Douglas WSU Master Gardeners for safe-gardening suggestions. Not all 90 Master Gardeners responded to my email, but many of them offered ideas based on years and years of gardening experience.

Keeping your garden warm for the winter

It’s the season where Old Man Winter has nestled into the valley and the temperatures are starting to get chilly. Although there’s snow on the ground, there’s still time to get your garden ready for the harsh winter.

5 ways to become a wrap star this holiday season

Sure, they're gonna rip it open and destroy your handiwork in a matter a seconds, but that doesn't mean the gifts you deliver to loved ones this holiday season don't deserve your attention.

The real story of Winnie-the-Pooh’s woods

Just about everyone knows Winnie-the-Pooh. We're also familiar with Christopher Robin, the young boy who was one of Pooh Bear's best friends. And Pooh's posse: Tigger, Eeyore, Owl and the rest, all of whom roamed the Hundred Acre Wood of A.A. Milne's writings.
