Haven Brand | Manure Tea's insight:

As both a medical school professor and someone with experience growing (and even engineering) microorganisms, I’m not naïve about the potential for foodborne illness from my home garden. That said, I still consider the produce that I consume from my tiny plot to be far less risky than anything I might pick up at a grocery store or restaurant.

Haven Brand | Manure Tea's insight:

One of my all-time favorite evergreen shrubs is the Sweet Box (Sarcococca rustifolia).  Hardy in zones 7-9, it has year-round shiny, small, dark green leaves that sit there and look happy every day of the year.

Free book Friday!

Fans of Margaret Roach and her blog A Way to Garden are going to want to read the full-length version of her mindset with “the backyard parables - lessons on gardening and life” (Grand Central Publishing).

Haven Brand | Manure Tea's insight:

Margaret has one of those 2.5 acre, East Coast-centric gardens with a tad of Martha-gone-grubby going on. With spring springing soon, it will get your horticultural mojo flowing with thoughts on frogs and fancy shrubs.

Haven Brand | Manure Tea's insight:

Of course, as in previous years during this holiday break,  I’ve been frantically planting the thousands of spring bulbs that I ordered so enthusiastically last summer.  As I’m writing this, I still have a few hundred left to get in the ground once it stops raining.

Gardening for the People

You Grow Girl was launched in February 2000, as a community for gardeners not unlike myself; people who want to grow but whose garden space is less than ideal. And for those of us with shallow pockets but a big, crazy love for tending plants and making a meal from homegrown fare, wherever home may be. – Read on…

Haven Brand | Manure Tea's insight:

When I took this photo we had just experienced a big thaw and I thought it would be interesting to assemble the opuntias to see how they have been fairing up underneath snow.

Pruning roses is a bit like parenting teenagers - Red Dirt Ramblings®

Pruning roses is a bit like parenting teenagers - Red Dirt Ramblings® | Annie Haven | Haven Brand | Scoop.it

While I worked, I pondered how pruning roses is a lot like raising teenagers.  I’m on numbers two and three in the children category if you wondered.

Haven Brand | Manure Tea's insight:

This afternoon, I untangled the wreck between Rosa ‘The Fairy’ and R. ‘Carefree Delight’ (a thornier beast never grew), and I was stabbed on my arms, head and backside.  Note:  Friends keep giving me rose gloves, but I find them clunkier than regular gloves, and they make my arms sweat.  Besides, they don’t don’t solve the sticky head or backside problems.  I’m thinking full body armor?

This is how my front yard looked this past fall after I added an additional section to the flower bed along the drive on the east side.

42 Top Seeds for 2013 ~From Some Favorite Gardeners and Seed Sources
Haven Brand | Manure Tea's insight:

I’m a seed-aholic. No matter how hard I try to control myself, each winter I can’t resist experimenting with new introductions. Oh yes, and I must have another variety of amaranths, nicotianas…or whatever. I convince myself that it’s inexpensive ~ after all, another $2.75 spent on what will surely be dozens of beautiful flowers is hard to resist.

Marlborobulb: Wine garden | Annie Haven | Haven Brand | Scoop.it

It is a corner of the garden where all the plants have the name of alcohol.  A great setting for a cocktail party don't you think?

Haven Brand | Manure Tea's insight:

The plant on the left is Atropurpurea 'Burgundy Glow' while out of site is an old apple tree with a wine bottle humming bird feeder and a parrot (5 o' clock somewhere and there is a sign with that on also!!) A red and a white grape grow over the home made arch and the wine bottles serve as edges as you can see

Tuscan Kale Salad
Haven Brand | Manure Tea's insight:

I found this delicious recipe in a health magazine while on the treadmill, compliments of the good Dr. Andrew Weil. It appealed to me because it not only looked yummy, but because I had planted this same variety in my front bed in an expression of my edible landscape enthusiasm.
