Rhubarb — the mother of invention?

If you’ve been a reader of this column for a while, you know that I’m a big fan of rhubarb. Every year, we add more of it around our place, due to the fact that it holds...

The bees in your backyard

I have a confession to make. This article’s title is not original with me. Hopefully you’ll overlook this, as this imitation is indeed a compliment. Last week, I had the enjoyable experience of attending a great presentation by...

It’s a great time to propagate shrubs for spring
