Thanks for today.: What I Did Last Weekend | Annie Haven | Haven Brand | Scoop.it
Haven Brand | Manure Tea's insight:


I try to get my natives from plant sales with the local wildflower and master gardener groups; or, order from reputable online nurseries. But I have to admit I was a sucker for these packaged wildflowers in my big box store before Christmas. I don't know if they will even make it but I'm trying anyway.

Haven Brand | Manure Tea's insight:


It's really just a coincidence.  Perfect timing you could say.  I was inspired to make this quinoa salad with citrus after an incredible New Year's Eve dinner at The Village Idiot in Lexington.  A mixed grain feast for both the eyes and the palate, wheat berry, quinoa and farro were tossed together and topped with bright grapefruit and blood orange, the burst of citrus perfectly complementing the light vinaigrette, marrying every element on the plate.

Palette Pointer for Designing with Foliage

Palette Pointer for Designing with Foliage | Annie Haven | Haven Brand | Scoop.it
Choosing a color palette for a garden space is really no different than choosing a color scheme for a room. It sure is an easy way to look at it isn’t it? We’re all drawn to certain col...
Haven Brand | Manure Tea's insight:

Sometimes your choice of where to start your palette might have to do with tying a particular color back into a particular area. Maybe it’s a color that calms all other colors down, or possibly the spark that lights other colors up. It is not a bad idea to have that one consistent thematic color of foliage in a given area to hold a scene together cohesively.

Haven Brand | Manure Tea's insight:

They say a good friend listens, lends a shoulder to sop up tears, is trustworthy and dependable. Yeah, yeah those are great but this week I’ve seen that a good friend will also schlep a caramel cake from San Francisco to Seattle in her carry-on for the sole purpose of sharing it with you. Now that is a good friend.

Haven Brand | Manure Tea's insight:

With the expansion of the greenhouse vegetable production, niche ornamental crop production and the controlled environment agriculture industry in North America, the business can feel like a gold rush. At times, it seems like a flood of new companies are popping up looking to grow or supply the people doing the growing, and with an already established cadre of large growers and suppliers, it can be hard for a company to make it. But for Hort Americas, a horticultural supply company based in Texas, the keys to making it through the 'gold rush' are a focus on grower needs and strong expertise.

Haven Brand | Manure Tea's insight:

Before Christmas, I wrote of my pledge to bring my wife flowers all winter long, so that our home always had the cheer of blooms no matter the weather outside. So far, so good. We've gone the entire first month of winter with at least one vase full of fresh blooms.

Stunning Low-Budget Container Gardens

Repurpose old, damaged or about-to-be discarded items into smart-chic containers. If the items don't have drainage holes, add some. Or keep the plants in their pots so you can easily slip them out of the container to dump excess water.
