Heirlooms To the Rescue | Planet Natural

Heirlooms To the Rescue | Planet Natural | Annie Haven | Haven Brand | Scoop.it
Today, many gardeners are involved in saving seeds from extinction. To quote an old ecological saying: extinction is forever.
Haven Brand | Manure Tea's insight:

We often think of saving seeds in literal terms:  letting flowers and vegetables go to seed, whether edible at that point (squash, tomatoes) or not (lettuce); separating and cleaning the seeds, drying them, and then protecting them until we’re able to plant again.

Our Little Acre: Weekend Wisdom Debut

Our Little Acre: Weekend Wisdom Debut | Annie Haven | Haven Brand | Scoop.it
Haven Brand | Manure Tea's insight:

As if you needed yet another reason to love cats other than they're sweet and loveable, yet fiercely independent (or want you to think so), it seems that their purr is precisely the frequency to aid in the healing of bone injury and increase bone density.  It may even be a means for them to speed up their own healing when they've been injured.

Haven Brand | Manure Tea's insight:

It’s true. A small but determined revolution is underfoot, one that intends to stop at nothing in order to bring down the ubiquitous and deadly disposable coffee cup. The disposable coffee cup revolution is underway and on the move.

From the Soil: Eight Annuals That Deserve an Encore

From the Soil: Eight Annuals That Deserve an Encore | Annie Haven | Haven Brand | Scoop.it
Eight Annuals That Deserve an Encore  

As our gardens grow into their bones, it becomes more difficult to innovate their designs without major reconstruction and cost. I crave change and salivate over a blank canvas, living with a constant urge to makeover my maturing home garden. My gardens are far from finished, but there are major sections in patiently wait mode where an eager spade is no longer welcome.

When is a wall more than a wall?

When is a wall more than a wall? | Annie Haven | Haven Brand | Scoop.it
Haven Brand | Manure Tea's insight:

We tend to think of garden walls and fences as utilitarian – simply a means of defining a space, marking a property boundary or holding back soil. Yet they can be so much more than that.

Did you know that Saturday, January 26, 2013 is National Seed Swap Day? Nope, neither did I until I happened to read an article today. So, while it's too late for me to organize a local, community seed swap, I thought it might be fun to host a virtual seed swap. Want to join me?

Proven Winners | Beyond Blooms - Shrubs with Fabulous Foliage

Proven Winners | Beyond Blooms - Shrubs with Fabulous Foliage | Annie Haven | Haven Brand | Scoop.it
Haven Brand | Manure Tea's insight:

When I first started gardening, it was all about the flowers, and I choose the majority of my perennials and shrubs for their blooms. Big, fragrant, bi-colored, frilly, doubled - I had to have it all! Yet, I soon realized that once the flowers had faded, many of those shrubs offered little ongoing interest and I was left with clumps of rather boring green foliage for the remainder of the year. Meh…I was not impressed.
