Re: Landscaping question

You can do some of it yourselves. I was dealing with a small back yard covered in gravel & debris, so I had nothing to lose as far as the landscaping was concerned. The idea was to clean up, remove gravel, plant grass. I just got a long level for [more]

Re: Wrapping up the Garden

They expect temperatures to get into the 30s tonight. I'm harvesting the basil and parsley.

Re: Poll: OT: Restauranteurs Deaf or Insane?
