Greetings humans, my name is Dexter and welcome to my blog.
My humans have a strange routine of going to other humans dens and doing lawn maintenance. For reasons unbeknownst to me, they refer to this as "work" and "job." Like most humans, from time to time they forget what life is about while doing this thing they call a "job" and I think they invite me along to remind them. It's not an easy trick, I have to pull some serious stunts to draw their attention away from "work." I'll be using this blog to detail my adventures and document their strange behavior as I attempt to train them.
When I first thought about composting, back in, oh the early 90s, I knew absolutely nothing about it. I didn’t even know how to begin; I only knew that we had lots of oak leaves in our yard every fall that the trash haulers would pick up in giant black plastic trash bags and haul them away to I knew not where. My children were in elementary school back then, and I was a stay-at-home mom/day care provider to my sisters’ kids. One fall day, while walking the four blocks to pick the kids up from school, I came upon an elderly lady who was raking her leaves from her boulevard. I commented, “It never ends, does it?” She smiled and replied, “Oh, you can never have too many leaves”. That reply surprised and puzzled me. I was used to grumping about raking the leaves every fall, not viewing them in a positive light.
Looking back at the place I've lived, I'm glad to be in Southern Nevada. We had a bit of winter like weather here last week. Temps so low my poor lemon and orange trees got frostbite, lost their leaves and spoiled their fruit. We even had a couple days here where we could see snow atop Black Mountain. We even had some white stuff fall from the sky. It really was not snow but just a temporary light dusting of sleet which melted almost immediately. This is a far cry from the winters I experienced growing up and living until the 1970's in Northeastern Ohio.
The snow has finally melted and the bulbs are starting to peek through the ground. It is time to get your yard and garden ready for the upcoming growing season. Here are some tips on what can be done to get your yard and garden looking its best!
Just recently I took on the project of designing this website for Ryan and Andrea. As we venture out into the World Wide Web looking to expand the company, I can’t help but to draw a comparison to planting a garden. With a garden, you plant your seeds and nurture them until they bloom or bear fruit. In many ways, designing and optimizing a website works the same way.
One of the tricks to a beautiful yard is spring and fall clean-up. Removing the debris in a timely fashion is essential to a healthy lawn.
The changing of the seasons is a great opportunity to bring the warmth of your home to the front porch with natural seasonal decor.
