Day 23 – Mastering the DIY Garden Project

Day 23 – Mastering the DIY Garden Project | Annie Haven | Haven Brand | Scoop.it
Wow – That short break from the daily posts was invigorating! I spent a week up in Northern California pruning all the fruit trees on the farmstead and the hard, physical work did me good.
Haven Brand | Manure Tea's insight:

There are many different types of DIY posts over at Garden Therapy, so be sure to do some exploring. But if you only have time for a peek, I suggest you check out Natural Branch Coasters - one of her most popular posts. Stephanie does a lot of recycling projects and this one was made from a fallen cedar which turns a loss into a memento. It could also be used to recycle a Christmas tree!

Herbs That Attract Pollinating Insects - Vegetable Gardener | Annie Haven | Haven Brand | Scoop.it
Complement your vegetable garden with pollinator-seducing herbs.
Haven Brand | Manure Tea's insight:

When it comes to vegetable and fruit production pollinating insects are the very lifeblood of the garden. For the majority of food plants they're 100% necessary, so it's important to make pollinators at home in the garden and encourage them to stay.

Garden Designers' Roundtable: Inspiration 

Inspiration comes in many forms and guises.  Sometimes I have to seek it out, other times it hits me as a surprise observation or a flash of an idea from out of the blue when I'm busy at another task (Weeding, anyone?).  I've written about a number of my inspirational influences here, so today I'd like to focus on just one:  my colleagues.

Haven Brand | Manure Tea's insight:


Photographs are a key component of my business, so I'm always looking for good tips and examples to help me improve my landscape and plant photos.  Rich Pomerantz, a master photographer with a beautiful portfolio, had some solid reminders / ideas for me (which I ran right out and tried):

Thyme for Herbs

Thyme for Herbs | Annie Haven | Haven Brand | Scoop.it
Haven Brand | Manure Tea's insight:

I know, I know, there's snow on the ground, the temperatures are below normal, and today we are getting an ice storm -- I so long for spring.  Right now, the only thing saving my sanity is spring garden planning.
Luckily last year I kept good records, so now I can sit down with my graphs and lists and catalogs.

Our Story

Our Story | Annie Haven | Haven Brand | Scoop.it
The old street sign for W. Broadway and Thresher in Granville, Ohio.
Haven Brand | Manure Tea's insight:

The idea behind Broadway+Thresher came long before the name. David and Andrew met while both were working for another periodical. Jointly, they traveled around central Ohio to attend events and planned stories for future issues. After many conversations over delicious foods and gorgeous wines, they decided to start their own publication. Both having lived in urban and rural environments, they wanted to highlight the transition many communities are currently facing; chronicling urban influences on the rural aesthetic.

Haven Brand | Manure Tea's insight:

This staghorn fern has been living in our bathroom for the last three months and it loves the more humid environment there.  I put it in the shower periodically and wet it down, and I'll still be able to do the same thing with this container.

My garden is my favorite teacher.
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.

Give Your Vegetable Seeds a Great Start by Mike the Gardener

Give Your Vegetable Seeds a Great Start by Mike the Gardener | Annie Haven | Haven Brand | Scoop.it
Haven Brand | Manure Tea's insight:

Wouldn’t you like to increase the chances of your vegetable seeds not only germinating but developing strong roots in their early growth stages?

I have been vegetable gardening for over 30 years and a retailer of vegetable seeds with our Seeds of the month club for just over three years. As you can imagine I run into a wide variety of vendors in the vegetable gardening industry that make claims to be the best, the greatest and the only product you, your garden or your vegetable seeds will ever need to grow into big and strong vegetable and fruit producing plants.

Haven Brand | Manure Tea's insight:

It’s a new year, and it’s time to get the this year’s garden planned. I’m using the winter months to do some plotting and planning, including renovating and expanding an existing shade garden. My east-facing backyard receives morning light, with a dappled mid-day southern exposure. I’m using color and texture to bring this dark corner to life.
