We started Leaf on a shoestring, with a super small, super enthusiastic staff (shout out to Lynn, Marti and John) with a virtual office and have grown to the extent that we realize we can’t do it all by ourselves—we need more help! (Remember the super mom syndrome? That’s me.) There is so much more we can do to grow Leaf into the must use platform for all things related to ‘Design Outside’ but we have to grow and stretch and grow to do that.
The holidays are my favorite time of year. The girls come home—fiancés, husbands, friends and children in tow, and the cottage is filled with laughter and love. I like to have everything ready in advance, so that I can spend every precious minute enjoying their company. That means getting a head start on cooking, shopping and decorating!
"Natural Home Gardeners, get ready to brew your very own composted manure tea! I did and all of my potted herbs and plants are loving me for it." ~Pamela Kimsey
Just like Pamela, I've become a big fan of this tea for my own container gardens, as well as those of my clients - and I am trying new ways to use it more often. Most recently, I've begun using it to soak the roots of Amaryllis bulbs before potting them up for the holidays, and then I use the tea to water them once they start to grow. I'll be posting pictures of the results, so stay tuned.
Pumpkin Lanterns! A wonderful way to illuminate Autumn container gardens. The lantern-shaped pods hang from branches in abundance this time of year. These containers were fed a diet of Authentic Haven Brand Natural Brew for that extra special color boost!
We all have a cherished family recipe, each stain representing a story. For author Whitney Miller, that recipe was scribbled in the back of a church cookbook 100 years ago, and it's steeped in history.
